Random facts (scatter plot):
I take a lighthearted view of this process.
I'm ever so slightly an introvert, except amongst introverts. I make efforts to turn this around (extroversion can be so useful!), but it's like a southpaw learning to switch hit.
I make an effort to never be boring, but I have grown enough to usually know the difference between excitement and agitation.
I am a liberal who believes that conservatives have a few good ideas, and that most political positions are better in theory than in practice.
I'm an Atheist, but some of the people I respect most have deep fundamental divine beliefs, and I respect both religion and spirituality when it bears good fruit. I read Ecclesiastes recently, it's good stuff.
However, people that think homosexuality is a sin likely won't get along well with me, as I don't want your bigoted opinions expressed around my friends.
I miss larger cities, where a person could walk amongst swarms of people without driving first, but I'm here because it makes sense, right now, today.
I have a daughter in kindergarten, and I have her for the summers - until school started it was month on, month off. Nothing in my life has made me as happy as she has made me. She is a better child than I deserve. She likes watching documentaries about parasites, snakes, and the human intestine. We go on bike rides, and bug hunting, and I do my pleasure reading while she makes friends at Tom Brown park. She is currently trying to get the hang of the monkey bars, but I'm trying to get her to be less cautious and gain momentum. It's one of the most important things she can learn, I think, to reach out when you know you might not make it, because falling doesn't hurt that much.
