Concerning the flying side-kick picture posted: I joke that I am proficient in "ha lee wuud kung fu" but I'm not a martial artist nor do I espouse violence. The image is relevant to my personality though, as I do appreciate and aspire to kinetic style, and, I suppose, grace.
I picture myself as an easy going man who is fascinated by the human condition and awed and enthused by the beauty and complex interconnectivity of this thing we call existence. I imagine my strong points as being my sense of humor, my personality, my intellect, and my perceptiveness. I am also loyal and honest---occasionally to a fault.
I see many kinds of humor in most things and I love to ferret it out and share it with others.
I love camping, picnicking or perhaps mostly just rambling around and exploring in the outdoors. Conversely, I appreciate what the big city has to offer, especially that which I've not experienced before.
I enjoy and respect socially concocted notions such as fashion, etiquette, and tradition but am perhaps a bit too independent to be unquestioningly bound by them, or to take them too seriously.
I am officially educated through high school but have educated myself beyond that to a level I feel is arguably on parr with many college grads.
I am not very materialistic.
I do have discerning tastes regarding many things and am pretty particular oft times, but I am not a snob nor do I need those tastes to be constantly fulfilled.
I eschew crappy food that pretends not to be crappy. A fast food hamburger is generally not pretentious. Some store bought cheesecake with a name like "Artisan Ovens" and a three finger ingredients list, is.
I am interested in, and like to prepare and consume healthy food. I am also fond of various types of what I suppose one might call junk food, but endeavor to espouse such consumables that contain quality ingredients. For example, there is a huge difference in my eyes—and indeed in the chemistry of assimilation—between potato chips that have been fried in something like sunflower oil and those that have been fried in any kind of hydrogenated oil. Moreover, deliciously flavored potato chips that don't contain artificial coloring or flavoring are usually appreciated by me, whereas their franken-food alternatives are generally repellant.
Of the worldly things we experience, wind, to me, is received almost as an ally or ancient friend; a nearly spiritual literally energizing force which acutely renders a sense of mystery and wonder from the world. Thunderstorms, moon rises and moonlight---especially on snow---are experienced to similar effect.
I enjoy dancing on occasion—less often than I'd like actually—for fun or for exercise, and I enjoy singing.
I love public radio.
I do not tow any kind of idealogical line and believe that truth exists where one finds it. In other words, as one part of a belief system may ring true, this does not in and of itself mean that any other part does as well.
I was raised by a feminist and this has made what I see as its positive mark within my creed.
I have a deep appreciation for those I Love, and I express this to them freely.
I consider myself a humanist, and a realist, although I'm not entirely sure what is real.
