Seeing the big picture. Catching the details. Being
compassionate... usually. Doing whatever needs to be done. Having
fun when it's available. You know... stuff.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I like to keep friends, a lover, guitars, some good music, a little
cash, and a few beers around.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Especially how it relates to everything else.
