My self-summary

[Insert clever quote about love and the Universe here. Something Richard Gere said at an Academy Awards some years ago, or maybe a clever Dalai Lama quote. Yeah, that's the ticket. And mention the dog. Who can resist a dog?]

I am a perfectly middle class outdoors loving guy. I own my own home, [a wretched structure who's sole purpose in life is to suck dollars from my bank account.] I have a job that I actually enjoy, [because they pay me and I haven't won the lottery yet; who are we kidding here.] Some years back, I did the law school thing and passed the bars of Maine and Massachusetts, but ultimately remained in the software engineering field for the benefit of my family. Some day, when I "retire," I may open my own little practice somewhere, just for the fun of it, [and to screw with the government.]

I have a son, age nine, who is everything to me. If you have children, that's great by me. I also have a big goofy Yellow Lab. If you don't like dogs, honestly, you should be ashamed of yourself! And I mean that with an exclamation point. Go find some prissy Frenchman to date instead.
What I’m doing with my life
Recently widowered, but with eyes and heart determinedly fixed on the future. There are no ghosts, but there are fond memories. Just something we'll have to deal with.
I’m really good at
I love bike riding. I like riding my motorcycle. I like fly fishing when it involves a swiftly moving stream. [I have to beat back the pescetarians with a canoe paddle.] Notice a trend? I enjoy the meditative feeling of motion.

[Again, what BS. I like the sound of my Keurig pumping coffee straight into my veins first thing in the morning. I like the sound of not getting out of bed before 8 am on a Sunday morning. I masturbate too much. My motorcycle sits neglected in my garage.]

I believe, as I once heard Gary Snyder proclaim, that machines have souls. [To my snowblower, which decided to stop working in the middle of winter, I can only say that I hope your soul is burning in hell right now!]

I love hiking and camping, but I am not opposed to finding a nice B&B or well stocked cabin at the end of that hike.

I own guns and belong to a gun club. I read and agree with John Lott. I hunt. Read "Deer Hunting for Locavores" or "Call of the Mild: Learning to Hunt My Own Dinner" by Lila McCaulou if you want to understand my take on hunting.

I can fix things without cursing too much. [Define "too much"]

I can talk to animals. Kryptonite gives me a rash. When I step into a bathtub, the waters part. And I've been told I'm pretty good at .... (never mind.)
The first things people usually notice about me
"Funny, he doesn't look like a superhero."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For music, a random sampling from my overstuffed iPod includes: Steven Reich (over and over again), Abby Lincoln, The Eagles, Zac Brown Band, Springsteen, Aaron Copland, Foreign Service Learn Chinese recordings, Jay Nash (if you haven't listened to Jay Nash, please do, then message me to thank me for turning you on to him.)
Current book: Finding Your Way without Map or Compass. Some book about retiring and riding your motorcycle around the country. Fukuyama's State Building.
Dinner at the restaurant of your choice to the first person to guess my favorite movie.
The six things I could never do without
My son.
The love of a good dog.
My Kindle.
My house, which is modest and an endless work in progress, but which has a large backyard.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I hate snakes, so I spend a fair amount of time thinking, "Damn, I hope that's not a snake..."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I truly liked being a husband and for the most part, I was pretty good at it.
