My self-summary
"Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: “Mankind.” Basically, it’s made up of two separate words, mank and ind. What do these words mean? It’s a mystery, and that’s why so is mankind."
-- Jack Handey

This is beautiful.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a therapist at a shelter for homeless kids.
I’m really good at
Neuroplasticity. and converting optometrist jokes into opthamologist jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like falling asleep listening to audiobooks. They seem to launch my dreams into interesting orbits.

i love don delillo and george saunders -- basically anybody who's really funny, has a big heart and can write a dazzling sentence.

Also I adore the Eyewitness Books, especially Spy, Pond & River, and North American Indian.

I watch, re-watch and re-re-watch movies all the time. I really like Robert Altman, Adam Curtis, Melville, Herzog, and Terence Malick. The Jerk is perfect. The Long Goodbye is perfect. Airplane! is perfect. I usually like Charles Bronson for some reason. He's like a vengeful old-testament god who's on our side. Everybody needs one of those sometimes.

I think Albert Brooks is the funniest person alive.

and i love cop shows from the 70s--what a golden age for exotic pets and streetwise sidekicks.
The six things I could never do without
dire wolves, mastodons, wabi-sabi, the word petrichor, duc loi kitchen, l’appel du vide, and mission district banana-belt sunshine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
coincidentia oppositorum. and the possibility of parallel universes with only perpendicular parking.
On a typical Friday night I am
"It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between."

and if you're a beach bum private investigator living on a houseboat you won in a card game.

or if you can help me spell words like restaurant and liaison.
