My self-summary
I like to think I'm getting better as a person although i am still hindered by ignorance, aversion, and desire. In spite of this, I am a funny person. Maybe not a stand-up comic but I can still surprise myself with good things that I think of and can can still be surprised by the light and good things of the earth and elsewhere I work on being in the present, which someone told me recently, seems like a rare thing these days. I like it when people take risks and put themselves on the line, especially with emotions and creativity. I admire courage and kindness, yet also admire people who aren't afraid of being blunt, or at least direct, when necessary. I am deeply opposed to all forms of oppression and can be quite assertive in this area. I suppose I am an intellectual, although that may be a bit presumptuous.
