My self-summary
Abstract; A hardscrabble background punctuated with recklessness. "I asked God for a bike but I know God doesn't work that way, so I stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness"' Al Pacino. Pushed beyond the limits of mental and physical ability to achieve a gentle prosperity-high school friends are surprised. A quote in the Washington Post from an April '13 article stated: "[He] doesn't take no for an answer." In the Department of Summing it Up, that says a lot about me. "We ain't no delinquents, we're misunderstood, deep down inside us there is good." Jets @ "Officer Krupke."

An NPR interview on the subject of "Early Adapters" asked the question: "How does a person who is amongst the first to own a Chevy Volt, plug in when he lives on the top floor of a condo?" The answer made up the interview. Old pals are surprised to see the change since the days in the hallway outside the vice principal's office. A promising career in the music industry cut short, so had to scramble together an education starting at NYU. Known for "the hair," which with a little help, flourishes and differentiates me here inside the Beltway. I like being different and have a need to be recognized for innovation and creativity. Soon to retire with a fully funded 401K and a pretty good lust for life.
What I’m doing with my life
Wanting love, I'm here, humbly sharing forgiveness and understanding. Good luck has been with me so far, I'm excited about the future. My son's politically conservative..... He could have instead just dyed his hair purple or gotten a tattoo. He graduated recently from one of the finest colleges in the country,
Magna Cum Laude.
A psychotherapist and Certified Fitness Trainer, yoga and meditation are part of my practice. Long distance biking is time intensive and will keep me out of your hair in the morning and most of the afternoon. Let me be clear, though, that 99% of all the personal training I do is with the severe and persistent mentally ill residents of a publicly funded County program, (the Post article.). Oh, and I still play drums, for myself only, on an electric kit on which I take lessons.
I’m really good at
Working with people, innovation, creativity, living an alternative life style and making my dermatologist mad by hanging out on the hottest beaches in the hemisphere.
The first things people usually notice about me
Much as I hate to say it, hair and blue eyes. You may quote this: "As an Emmy Award winning hairstylist in the motion picture industry, my opinion is: [childntimes']hair ROCKS!" -- Judy Crown, 2013. Judy helped me by taming the hair for the stage back in Manhattan and we've remained friends ever since, this was her response to a recent Facebook photo. Update: abandoning the image of the west coast psychotherapist and ego that accompanies it, hair was cut to experience life without the distraction. In ernest, the true self search deepens.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading "Enders Game" OS Card, and listening to Somafm/Digitalis. Also read the Washington Post and scan the New York Times. And what I like in music is covered by Duke Ellington who said: "If it sounds good, it is good". I eat organic and I'm an environmentalist. (NPR interview). I like art and I'm out there in it all the time and go to all the good stuff. I have tickets for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds for July 2014. Recently Jeff Beck at the Warner, yoga exhibit at the Sackler, that kinda stuff.

Song of the Day: "You Run", Robert Levon Been
Six things I could never do without
Loving kindness meditation
Family Matters
Les Miserables, a story of redemption
Skilled doctors
Vitamix 5200
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I love my body, an amazing platform from which to launch my consciousness. Practicing yoga at home with bouts of meditation in between asanas and five level 2 and 3 classes a week. This is what it's all about. I got high praise recently while lifting at the gym. A guy asked me if I was a yoga Instructor or a dancer? I thanked him profusely.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not a typical, but prefer Saturday nights that start early and end late.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy that sustained him through temporary periods of joy." - Yeats. And wishing I lived in a world where everyone used their church voice.
You should message me if
you'd like to spend time in joint introspection, sitting in Easy Pose, face to face, our palms touching.
The two of us
