My self-summary
Inconclusive. I haven't lived enough to tell you more than where I'm at now. I'm a music maker, a movie writer, a poet, an over-ambitious slacker, a whiskey fan but a beer drinker, a homebody outdoorsman, a fan of creativity, a lonely people-person, a straightforward walking contradiction.
What I’m doing with my life
Living in the past, thinking of the future, all the while understanding that the present is all there is.
I’m really good at
I'm not good at a whole lot, but the things I like to do I try my best to do well.
The first things people usually notice about me

My favorite thing anyone has ever said about it me was: "You could put him on a desert island and he would somehow make friends." I assume they meant Wilson.

The six things I could never do without
Money, intelligence, logic, guitar, pen, paper
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My shortcomings and how to fix them
The mysteries of the world which science cannot explain
The spark of energy the causes our bodies to move about this world so freely
The best words to string together
Things I should get into
Things I should learn about
Books I should read
Movies I should see
The morality of society
The philosophy of mind
The death of the soul
Right and wrong
Why did I say that?
Why didn't I say that?
How to do better
How to be a better friend
How to be a better person in general
What I want to accomplish in this heartbreakingly short period between darkness and nothingness
And sometimes I think about nothing at all, and those times are great
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually going out to explore, and staying out later than I should since I work relatively early on Saturday mornings
You should message me if
Gently evolve. I don't completely not regret the name, but I don't totally hate it and I won't pay to change it. But I do ask you to think about it, what it means to evolve gently. And I realize this goes against all we've be conditioned to think, but: you and I, and him and her, and all the rest of them, we're all caught in this inexplicable movement of life. Imagine: we're all the moving parts of this universe; all as one we amble on toward this unknown destination, each one of us playing a small part on stage. If you think about even just the size of the earth, let alone the Milkyway Galaxy or the visible universe, forget the deep dark unknowable nothingness extending far beyond the pulse of time, then we can probably get along alright. And even if you don't see life that way, I imagine we can get along just as well. I know how crazy we can get at times. We're all works in progress, unfinished portraits in wonderful chaos. All we have is each other yet we're still insecure and lonely. I've heard that snakes are just as afraid of us as we are of them. Are we not better than snakes? Snakes? They don't even have legs or thumbs. Come on people.
