"Who am I?" is a deep psychological and philosophical question and I'm expected to answer, nay, summarize all of that in a little box? Not only that, they expect you to glean enough information to formulate an opinion as to who I am and whether or not you'd like to know me better all based on those things about myself that I've chosen to share in a public forum. Does anyone else find this process a little ridiculous?
I don't know about you, but I refuse to be put into a box.
I might be showing my age here (pfft, showing my age...who am I kidding? It's right at the top of the screen) but I'd like, if I may, to answer the question in the words of Edie Brickell and New Bohemians:
"What I am is what I am..."
(Now, for those of you reading this who were born after 1985, you may need to look the band/song up on YouTube. That's ok, I'll wait...it's worth the effort.)
I realize that I haven't given you very much to go on, but to me this is just a jumping off point. Call me old fashioned, but I still believe that you can't really start to get to know a person without first meeting them in person.
So I'll leave it here... I've done my bit. The ball is in your court, my friend
Not too long ago I went through something that changed me forever. As I travel along the path to regain some of the things I've lost as a result, I also find that I've acquired new insights and a new perspective on life. (Funny how life changing events will do that to you. Oh wait Life Changing....) While I continue to struggle with many things, I am a fighter and I can honestly say that I'm enjoying the ride.

(Side Note: I'm a little surprised that people don't tend to mention their sexual prowess in this section. Is the subject just that taboo? Are we all just that modest or is there something more? Just an observation.)
My eyes (a friend's father once told me I had the eyes of a wolf, deep and piercing. He also told me I have a nice butt so there's that too)
And of course my breasts (what can I say...I'm blessed with a nice pair)

Music: Right now I've got a real thing for the blues. I also love funk, jazz and classic rock.
I also love new and interesting independent artists like the Julian Taylor Band (www.juliantaylorband.com, www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLl1BYMjV3c), The Bacchus Collective (http://justinbacchus.com/), Ane Brun (anebrun.com, www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lI30Qw69AQ) and The Lifts (http://www.reverbnation.com/TheLifts)
