I listed atheism as my religion, but it's not actually a religion. It says nothing about what I believe, just what I disbelieve. My religion is kindness. That is the only element of any religion I feel is worth salvaging. What an amazing world this would be if everyone dropped their beliefs and just focused on making life better for each other.
I'm a political moderate. I strive to be free of all ideology. I'm more interested in connecting with those of different beliefs. I enjoy the occasional debate, as long as all involved are calm and respectful of one another. That rarely happens, so I try to avoid debates and focus instead on our shared humanity. I also try to avoid people with strong opinions that are hateful of those who disagree with them.
I love music. I play the acoustic guitar and sing, and I'm inspired by several genres. I spend much of my free time practicing music, enjoying music I love, exploring new music, and performing for others. I host a local open mic and monthly house concerts.
I'm a computer geek. I was a computer programmer in my former life. My idea of fun is installing a new version of Linux, learning a new programming language, or writing a program that improves my life in some way.
