My self-summary
I don't know what to say here. What makes me stand out? What gets me noticed? Nothing so far.

Take a look at my profile, my answered Questions, and my tests. And my photos, if you are so inclined. If you have any suggestions or comments, let me know. I respond to every message I get, and I will never bother you if you would rather not continue. I will be honest with you, and I expect honesty in return. I'm somewhat easy-going, I won't demand anything, and I'm not easily offended.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm not really doing a lot at the moment. My life is... a little complicated.

I will tell you that I'm currently dabbling in painting, photography, and woodworking. I'm learning how to play the violin. I'm also learning home renovation
I’m really good at
Sitting on a river bank holding a fishing pole looking like an idiot.

On occasion, I've been able to make someone laugh with a good joke. And I've had many compliments on the taste of my homemade jam and jelly. I also make a delicious pumpkin pie from scratch (using pumpkins from my garden).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A short list of a variety of books that I've found greatly enjoyable or thought-provoking are:
The Bible, The Hobbit and Trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Fountainhead, Ender's Game, Out of America, The Count of Monte-Cristo, Guns, Germs, and Steel, 1984, Out of America, and the works of Edgar Allen Poe and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Some of the shows I'm currently or have enjoyed watching are:
Archer, The Big Bang Theory, Bones, Burn Notice, Castle, Criminal Minds, Grimm, The Mentalist, Monk, Psych, Top Gear, The Walking Dead, And Warehouse 13, as well as a number of home improvement shows on DIY and HGTV.
The six things I could never do without
God and His Word
My car. Compact SUV. Takes me pretty much anywhere I want to go.
My new DSLR camera. I'm still learning how to take better pictures, but I like it more that I can record some of my better memories and share them. It also helps me remember.

More to come?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about the future. I think a lot about being in the outdoors. I also try to think of ways to make myself a better person. I've not been a public person in the past, so my social skills need work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exploring. Perhaps traveling somewhere I've not been. Or trying to find a chunk of sky without light pollution so I can photograph the stars at 3 in the morning during the peak of a meteor shower.

I might be experimenting. I look at things and wonder what I can do with them. Can I make this pineapple into jam? Turns out, yes. What can I make out of this old barn wood?

More often than not, though, sitting at home learning how to... do things. Renovate a house, maybe? Start a business?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have trust issues. I have always had a natural inclination to trust or to see good in people. It made me an easy mark, I suppose. Now, after many years of deception, I find it difficult to open up to new people.
