My self-summary
Writing about myself is something I loathe doing. It's sort of like writing a resume, finding a balance between compelling and interesting on one side and honest plus revealing on the other side. As well, it's hard to be objective when you're the subject. However...

I'm an ordinary guy doing an ordinary job, but always seeking to do it extraordinarily well.

When I'm not working, I engage in my Walter Mitty-like fantasies of covering every corner of North America by motorcycle. Been out there, done that a few times and need to do it some more. I live for the empty road in front of me and full tank of gas underneath me.

I am earnest, honest, and generous
What I’m doing with my life
Riding my motorcycle until I die or until the end of the Oil Age, whichever comes first.
I’m really good at
Breaking things. Broken bikes, a few broken hearts. I was able to fix the bikes, however.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and have blue eyes if you can look up that high.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I tend to read sporadically, more of a grazer than a full fledged reader. Lots of magazines to feed on. I almost never read fiction.

Recently finished:
'Beyond Blame: A New Way of Resolving Conflicts in Relationships' Jeffrey A. Kottler
'The Man Who Quit Money' Mark Sundeen
'The World Without Us' Alan Weisman

Fondly remembered:
'City of Quartz: Excavating the Future in Los Angeles' Mike Davis

Currently slogging my way through:
'Necessary Losses: The Loves, Illusions, Dependencies, and Impossible Expectations That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Grow' Judith Viorst
The six things I could never do without
Sort of an irrelevant question. Even if there were only six things, I've made do without any and all of them at one time or another.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- If I could move a mountain, where would I put it?

- Why do people believe weird (dumb) things? Unsubstantiated things (those lacking sufficient evidence)? BTW, I'm no exception.
On a typical Friday night I am
getting ready for the weekend. With any luck, I'm already gone by then.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You already know too much about me.
You should message me if
you're curious about me and have a sense of adventure.
