Spot on. I rarely slow to a complete stop-- I love what I do as a media/technology entrepreneur, producer, sailor, musician, writer, skier, and father.
There are lots and lots of people in my life but just a few truly great friends who mean the world to me. My adult kids are amazing (to me at least) and are the greatest joy and the best teachers in a life that hasn't lacked in those departments.
On balance I'd MUCH rather laugh than mourn but there are times where each of those are in season. I see humor in life in general and marvel at the variety of experiences that have come my way. The stories of the people who have crossed my path are like pieces of a mosaic that keeps getting more interesting and complex. And beautiful.
A serious traveler--have been all over Europe, Oz and parts of Asia. Never ventured to South America or Africa yet but looking forward to those trips at some point. Love to wander around museums of all kinds---have made a living in a couple of different creative professions and truly love art and design. My house ran out of wall space for my vintage 30s posters a long time ago.
I appreciate great food but love a great burger, too. A killer breakfast place ranks as the 8th wonder of the world to me in whichever city I'm lucky enough to discover one.
For me the glass is 3/4 full. I make my living by building on and spreading around great ideas and have a hard time imagining working in a way that didn't engage my imagination and love of creation. Have done well in business and have been fortunate enough to work with some incredible people along the way.
Though I don't have a clue as to who you are looking for or why, I suspect if you have made it this far, that might be a good sign.
