I like to create and to understand. I think life is about love: the
big kind - for god and/or the universe; the local kind - for
neighbours wherever we encounter them; and yes, the romantic kind.
Especially the romantic kind. I love the wings of birds and the
openness of children. I'm the most romantic person I know. I think
passions are to be followed, everything is to be celebrated, losses
grieved, and friends and promises kept. I"m told my photos here
don't do me justice, so I'll replace them before too long.
What I’m doing with my life
My income comes from designing buildings; the more complicated and
challenging, the better. My first degree is in Architecture. I
design major buildings for/with big architecture firms, and smaller
ones on my own. I stay financially secure; but I could make a lot
more money. I pursue the arts seriously instead - I'm a filmmaker
(the grad degree is in film) - progress is steady. I have
progressive and almost radical tastes in art, music, and appreciate
a wide range of lifestyles. But not at the expense of all
tradition. Even though I think the bible - as wonderful as it can
be - sometimes exhibits tourette's syndrome, I teach Church School
to grades 2 to 5 at an Anglican Church. I see strength, tenderness,
and being part of a group to be linked together. It takes work.
(But of course I see the play part as the most important.)
