What can I say? Energetic, silly, dependable, clever, adventurous, caring... I love life and my world is large! I live in a dozen different boxes all at once: an Egyptian raised in New England and The South; a logician who believes in magic (not fire-from-fingertips, but a sort of sparkle to things unseen and only just barely felt); an extrovert who loves both quiet evenings and madcap afternoons; and a logo-lingui-bibliophile with a literary streak giggling in the body of a Software Engineer. Words and their meanings mean a great deal to me, and I try to cultivate words like a gardener tends his garden. Communication, open, honest, and free means more to me than almost anything else.
I love to travel. Not just the visiting of places mind you, but also the actual feeling of motion, of journeying, of wandering and seeking and getting lost and then having found. These days I'm occasionally in New York, LA, Atlanta, or DC, with yearly trips to Egypt, Europe, or some other further off place as my schedule allows. I've been journeying for most of my life, really, and I'm perfectly at ease in deserts, forests, oceans, and airport lounges. But despite (or maybe because of) all my travel, what I'm looking for are the cheery lights of Home. Not the place, but the Person who makes the place -- desert, forest, ocean, lounge -- be Home.
I am pleasantly optimistic, hilariously creative, and always heroic.
