My self-summary
I don't think anything I put here will feel entirely right as a summary - how to be objective about myself? I'll just list some random things about me:
I love the oceans and wildlife of most kinds.
I believe honesty is important, both on a personal and a global scale. This maybe makes me some kind of optimist. I love writing,reading, music, gaming, and T.V. /film.
I prefer the dreams of the future to the history of the past. I am (trying to) learn my lessons from the past to help realize my dreams of the future; it can be a uphill battle.
One of my biggest dreams is to attend Burning Man one year.
I am Mercurial,, Serpentine, and Peripatetic
What I’m doing with my life
Living it, mostly ; )
I’m really good at
Talking and listening. I love writing, though I get writer's block from time to time. I like reading, and walking & talking with people over long distances. I'm good with pets, as long as I'm not allergic to them, and I once kept a plant alive for five years. I'm pleased I was able to do that.
I'm occasionally inclined to begin some sort of discourse, on any topic, about fairly obscure stuff, rather out of any obvious context. A past, a perspective present, a possible progressive prophecy; point is that I'll listen to, respect and respond to a persons point of view, though I'll argue more when drunk.
When I was a kid I built toys out of scrap (I want to get back into that as an art form, but space is an issue).
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never asked anyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Iain M. Banks, David Brin, Kim Stanly Robinson and Hunter S. Thompson. I'll read almost anything. Lately read 'The Road' by Cormac Macarthy... what a powerful book. Stephen Kings 'Dark Tower' books. Just finished Tropic of Cancer. There's so many more.

I enjoy well made crime drama's, comedy, and the SF classics. I love SF in general, but there's a lot of crap out there.

My musical taste is far too eclectic to get into, but I had a long love affair with techno that never really went away. My favorite band is Garbage.
Six things I could never do without
1- All that Life Stuff, you know, air, water, food, shelter.
2- A few real friends.
3- A good backgammon partner, in short supply these days.
4- Freedom of movement and expression.
5- Nature (can be placed with #1).
6- An enjoyable occupation (can go with #4).
7 - Direction instead of floundering.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and the past. I should concentrate on the present, yet I often think about my personal future, and the future of the world; about everything in it. Helps when writing S.F.
Where will we be in fifty years? Better off? Worse? Probably somewhere in between.
Are we alone in the universe? What do Octopus & Dolphins think about?
Will excess consumption of Spices and Herbs help me live longer? And do I really want to? Will Humans ever visit Mars?
I also generally try to not consume too much news media, that stuff can get depressing and is ninety percent bullshit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. Then either going out or going home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's a secret.
You should message me if
If you want to.
The two of us
