My self-summary
i am an advocate of the underappreciated & a lover of most things & most people. i have high hopes for everything. this is good, in theory, but sometimes gets me into trouble.
What I’m doing with my life
remembering all the words to all the best songs, accumulating a lot of miles in my car in search of the perfect place, being awed by birds in flight, walking other people's dogs, making heroes of the mountains & the seas, taking everything apart just so i can put it back together again, being fascinated by trains, & making sure not to forget anything or anyone.
I’m really good at
sitting on porches.

making little things which are of no significance to anyone but me & the people to whom i give them.

being an animal magnet.

photographic memory.

drinking beer. sometimes the fancy kind, but i mostly like lone star.

somehow being equally as incredible at bocce ball as i am awful at bocce ball.

The first things people usually notice about me
that i'm probably pretending not to notice them noticing me.
