and spirit. i enjoy playing many sports...tennis, ping-pong
(don't bet against me) volleyball, softball, frisbee, biking, hiking,
swimming, body surfing, quoits. i've inevitably slowed down
a bit since the days of my youth...operations and injuries to
many body parts will do that to you. however, being proficient
in competitive sports can give you confidence in other facets of life... my sons are a testament to that. i never
had to be that "frustrated athlete" father, who tried to live it through his kids.
i'd prefer not to be defined exclusively by my sports interests.
the visual of a guy, beer belly, beer in hand, yelling at the tv...
not pretty, and not me. i try to view situations, people, the world as 'objectively' as possible, while being aware of my own subjectivity and personal biases. maybe i'll
be a judge someday when i grow up. i like being outside and playing in the dirt--gardening, planting, sculpting my living
space, hugging trees, and in general,
being a responsible
citizen of the world. i am truly
humbled by the beauty (zion national park) and forces
(sandy and katrina) of nature. if it's not too late, maybe
we can actually get on a path to leave at least a semblance
of a sustainable planet to future generations.
i am the father of two young men, 24 and 27, of whom i am very proud.
i have a great support system of family and close friends.
i'm told that i'm funny...maybe.
my ambition is to find a 50-something-60something, confident, caring,
intelligent, honest, fit, passionate and compassionate
i'd like to make it to 80+,
healthy and happy...sharing it with the love of my life.
