A friend described me this way . . .
"He has sensitive antennae, avoids confrontation, but is keenly observant. He is not a star. He doesn't want adulation. He wants regard. He wants recognition and entree to a world of smart, tough, ambitious people, and he wants a place there."
Initially I can be bold, brash and full of bravado - but beyond the schtick I'm easy going.
E/INFJ depending but always heavy on the NF
I have a problematic relationship with Capitalism
Eccentric, unconventional and insatiably curious.
What I’m doing with my life
I oversee a clinic for individuals with disabilities.
Part time - religion blogger, book critic, playwright, DIY enthusiast.
aspiring polymath - more often a dilettante
pickling, preserving and planting
I’m really good at
cooking and cleaning, knowing a guy, ranting and raving, listening, all things ancient world, random acts of kindness, remembering information from high school biology, un-surreptitiously using big words

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
alleviating anxiety, digestive health, what to make next, tangents, defensive pessimism, that thing I heard on NPR, Byzantium.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having an existential crisis and watching Netflix
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not always easy- I need alot but I give even more.
