For a long time, I'd look back at myself from 5 years earlier, and chuckle at my younger self's naivete -- amazing how that younger self thought he knew it all, when clearly *now* I was much more savvy! Now, I've finally gotten to the stage in my life where I appreciate where I've come in the past 5 years...but even more, I wonder what my 5-years-hence self will be like, what new wisdom and experience he might have...and how I can go about becoming that next self. And I like it.
...long winded way of saying I'm a work in progress, and will always be. I'm a man of firm convictions...but open mind. Of learning...but awareness of my ignorance. I prefer to focus on likes over dislikes...to think in terms of solutions, rather than problems...to imagine what can be, rather than what can't...to enjoy the journey, rather than be impatient for the destination.
...and to find things to chuckle over, ideally with good company, all along the way. :)
Vague enough of a summary for you? ;) Perhaps the answers below will give you more insight...and if you like what you see so far, try comparing some of our "The Two of Us" entries...lots of musings and elaborations to be found there. :)
...and no, I don't typically look quite the way I appear in my picture, it's true (for example, my eyes actually focus quite nicely, thank you). I've been stalked a couple of times, though, so am a wee bit leery of posting more pics here. Hopefully this capture by a friend of my impromptu Hulk imitation will do for the moment (and give you some idea of the silliness ahead of you should you opt to say hello) -- once we've gotten to know one another a bit, if you'd like to see more of me, just ask. :)
