I was born in Ohio, moved to Denver when I was 28 and later to California, where I spent 25 years. I have only been in AR for the last 8, and have several dear friends, but it has been a bit of a culture shock.
I am a person who respects logic and rational thought and I do not believe in anything supernatural, though that was not always the case. I'm a Libra, and if you think that *really* matters, you can stop reading now.
I'm an easy going person as I have had family and friends living with me for extended periods. I like having people around me, but I shun those who cause emotional drama.
I am compassionate towards all creatures. I religiously feed the birds and squirrels that come to my yard, and usually capture spiders I find in my home and put them outside. I consider all life forms precious, except mosquitoes and ticks.
Them SOBs can just die !
My interests have varied, from raising tropical fish, fixing old cars, remodeling homes, astronomy, skiing on snow and water, art (drawing and painting), designing and making jewelry, photography and philosophy to name a few.
I spend a lot of time reading, writing, playing with my dogs, working around the house and assisting neighbors with their projects.
I support the local animal shelter with time and money.
I am driven by compassion, kindness and generosity.
I am active in and was a Board member of the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers. I describe myself as an agnostic atheist.
Agnostic because I don't believe anyone can prove or disprove with absolute certainty whether there is a god, although the probability of there being one seems nil to me.
Atheist because I am 100% certain that the gods described in the religious books I have read are figments of people's creative imaginations.
I have several years of college, but pursued the subjects that interested me rather than a degree.
I am separated for almost two years from my wife of 17 years. She has moved to Ohio, and we are pursuing a divorce.
I would like to make friends and keep the relationship platonic.
