I think it is difficult to know oneself, to be able to clearly
portray themselves to another, and I doubt my capability to do so
in an OKC profile. But, I will make an attempt. I am a curious

am myself, even if that makes me out of step with others. If you
really are curious about who I am, dare to find out.

The six things I could never do without
The company of interesting people. The availability of literature
that doesn't lack in profundity. The warm flavor of a good whiskey
(scotch or bourbon). The ability to see light filter through the
leaves of a tree. Music that speaks to the soul. The drive to

How beautiful and treacherous life is. How society developed and
agreed to the artificial constraints that are now normal behavior.
Human nature and what about it is dynamic or static. Questions of
politics, philosophy, and theology. What I will do in the future.
