I like this place, this home, this story.
I like sitting here on my favorite bed, looking out the window at the lights of Oakland, below.
I like working too much, and the passion I bring to my work.
I like how my friends treat me, care for me, love me.
I am many things, many wonderful and many ugly, and whole, a whole person, a whole being.
I recognize that sucks as a come-on, but hey, that's the deal.
