a little bit of a train hobo, a little bit of a constant student, been working service industry jobs most my life and I love it. I recently opened my own small coffee shop in Tijeras called Muskrat Coffee. I am an avid reader, writer, lover of the blues, old timey music, country, punk, metal, anything sad and anything that makes my head, feet or anything else move. I love to learn. I am shy and an admitted romantic. I love crosswords, coffee shops, dive bars, and can be a creature of habit. Sir Ernest Shakelton has gotten me through many a hard time with "grin and bear it growl and go."
I am delightful, adventuresome, and sometimes bearded
Always remembering my morning coffee, the new york times crossword and taking a big breath of fresh cold air into my lungs.
I have two degrees... History and Anthropology. I am an ex bartender.
harmonica, watching my friends play music, I am a good listener,
can tell a good story and if i do say so myself, I cook a mean set of hash browns. Maybe even make you some if you want.
I love reading poetry, Hayden Carruth, Wendell Berry, Gary Snyder, short stories like those of Flannery O'Conner, John Cheever, etc and on and so on and historical fiction and history books- modern, political, western, civil war, labor history and regional.
Music all of it, especially if it make me feel something. Punk, metal, folk, rock and roll, willie nelson, heartless bastards, otis redding, SAM COOKE!!!!! merle haggard, waylon jennings, george jones, Townes Van Zandt for the love of god, guy clark, scott biram, lucero, drag the river, break my heart with music cause its all i've ever known. give me a sad train song and i'll give you a story about my friends and some trains i rode and some whiskey i drank and a girl who broke my heart. they are all good stories, happy stories, music keeps my head above water.
Movies, well I have a big soft spot for studio Ghibli movies, Clint Eastwood westerns, Japanese classics like Ran and the Seven Samurai, and love Zorba the Greek,
I love books, Studs Terkel's autobiography and the short stories of Raymond Carver and I love Cormac McCarthy, The Border Triology, All The Pretty Horses, Blood Meridian etc... all good. James Agee "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men"
