I am always trying to build more community and I've spent the last few years figuring out who my people are. I'm finally finding them.
I am a geek. I love to learn new things and can become somewhat obsessive about new things I am learning.
I write poetry, fiction, and software. I cook, I dance, I hike, I travel. I try not to take myself or life too seriously, except when it matters to me or someone I care about.
I love science fiction, fantasy, gaming (Cheap Ass Games, Munchkin, D&D, you name it...), technology.
I think about ideas and strive to articulate my ideas in non-fiction journaling, talks, and even my fiction.
I am an optimist and a futurist. I believe humanity can overcome the stupidity that keeps us involved in war, oppression, and greed.
The closest things to a spiritual experience for me are:
* A cup of coffee with someone I love
* A quiet moment alone in the woods
* The sudden understanding of an idea that I didn't have before
