There are things that I choose, (or don't), the people that I surround myself with and the things I love.
I desire self improvement, and care. I love to think, and experience. I have done a lot in my life, and have many stories. I live and I learn and I live, each time savoring the experience.
I am not one for excuses, though I make them. I live and hope to keep living for a long time, if not indefinitely! Though I accept that some things are not possible for me, I try to maintain that they may be possible for someone or something. This keeps me alive with an incredibly open spirit and curious vigor.
I love to love and be loved. I love to give and I create value wherever I can, for myself and others. Sometimes my thoughts come across as dry or even emotionless, but I am a very emotional being. Someone I care deeply for said to me once that I have "A romantic nature tempered by practical self interest" I find this to be my ideal. For I do, as well as think, and in my doing, become the Man I hope to be.
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider "ME.
Music as I'm sure you've realized, plays a huge role in my life. I love music for its effect on the soul and the mind, so whatever does the job is on my list. A couple of deeply personal and beloved selections would be any of the second movements from Beethoven between 4 through 7. I love Mahler's 5 symphony, and Mozart's 9,20,21 piano concertos, there is Rachmaninoff and Saint Saens, (Duke Ellington and so many other great Jazz contemporaries. I love new music as well. Tame Impala, Floom, Kendrick Lamar (many solid old school rappers that share the style) I used to listen to the Beatles and Led Zepplin on a constant basis but now they are sort of on the shelf. Again, asking might get you a better picture.
Some movies steal the soul. I love Humphrey bogart. Clark gable. And the style and setting they played. On a more modern note. The batman movies. Some Tarantino. And Miyazaki. Of course, "Last Tango in Paris"
I have taken to watching TV while I practice scales, so I watch a lot sometimes. South Park is a must, Always Sunny in Phili, Band of Brothers, curb your enthusiasm, to name a few.
The ability to revise this list
Why people do what they do. Why I do what they do.
I hear music. Maybe that is a thought.
I think about many little things. Little ways the world works. And they add up. Sometimes to large understandings.
Perhaps I think about timing too much.
I think about if "too much" exists. I know too much air will kill you. Watch out for that air
