My self-summary
My name is Tal. I am a phlegmatic and amiable person. I have had strong opinions in the past but recent experiences have knocked me on my ass and humbled me, praise Jesus. I desire a principled meekness in myself and others. I want to not take myself so seriously but it's difficult. I've been through a lot in life and am oozing from my wounds but I'm still affable and I strive to be lovely and funny. All told I'm a normal person with normal friends. I love my family and animals. I'm a struggling Christian convert with something like the faith of a graham Greene: I've lost my tight fisted dogmatism and only now want to be God's sheep. I study Kabbalah with my Jews and go to church with my Christians. My heroes are mainly artists who lived tragic and short lives. I have hope somehow after all, and want to live that hope with another.

Out with friends
