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
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).
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.
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.
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.
