Listening to people
Aerial acrobatics and circus arts
Talking about emotions
Creative problem solving
Getting my hands dirty
Acting swiftly and wisely in emergency situations
Surviving in the wilderness
Pushing myself beyond my current boundaries
Wasting time on exciting diversions
Being sometimes messy, but not dirty
Being an attentive parent
Dressing up (but only occasionally)
I am a renaissance man.
Here, I'll take a guess or two...
That my eyes are ever-searching for meaning and connection, and very blue, though sun-worn.
That I like thinking about the big picture and abstract things.
That I have long eyelashes.
That I don't hold back.
That I can be accepting and have high standards at the same time.
That I am intense in my inquiry of life and all I meet.
That I am kind-hearted and empathic.
That I am persistent.
That I am hard to define (like all authentic people).
That I find value in all experience.
That I like details.
That I expect a lot of myself, but with good humor and gentleness.
That I have good taste in funky shoes or funky taste in good shoes.
That I appreciate the right tool for the job.
That I like to smile, laugh, and find joy in broadest array of moments.
That my arms and hands and embrace are full of love and strength.
That I like to dive deep... always!

Making things with my hands
The touch of caring hands
Oddity and beauty and their closeness.
How things go together?
What's inside of stuff?
What makes stuff stick?
Why we remember?
How we learn?
What people are thinking and why?
How people are feeling and why?
How would I fix that?
Information arrangement and visual hierarchies.
Your hand in mine.
Is my body aligned for this moment?
Can my heart open to what is in front of me?
How do I take this apart into manageable steps?
Do you think I'm sexy?
If you want my body?
Are you going to let me know?
How can I find grounding in an ever-changing world?
Is it a contradiction, a logical fallacy or a state of grace? Or should I have said 'and' not 'or'?
