My self-summary
Damned if I do damned if I don't !
What I’m doing with my life

The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my warmth and friendliness... I did have two different people in my life who do not know each other on two separate occasions in one week say that I was a very charming person… So maybe that's something people notice about me?

Six things I could never do without
Besides the obvious physiological essentials needed to sustain life and my deep love for my children, thesix things I would not want to give up right now are 1. IPhone/iPad. (Having the unusual hours that I do as a private guitar teacher I have leaned on Facebook for surrogate social interaction. I've posted tons of pictures and i like to interact with other people I post videos of my songs etc.) as well as being able to check my email,send text, watch movies on Netflix, buy and sell things on eBay,Play solitaire, play backgammon, listen to my music on reverbnation,listen to my 5000 album record collection in my iTunes,take pictures etc. I love my iPhone and my iPad ...
2. My dog Ringo . I never wanted a dog but my daughter wanted one so badly I finally convinced my landlord to let me get one and now I can't imagine living without him because he's my best friend And a great roommate !
3. My mac . I'm constantly producing recordings and printouts and chord charts and tablature and music for my students and without my computer I have no access to my thousands of files .
5.My good health and physical fitness.Im in my mid-50s now and could be a fitness model quite frankly and that's only because I've been busting my ass and watching what I eat…
6.The good common sense my parents instilled in me from an early age . Without that I would've been dead a long time ago !!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of different things… My future, my past, my present, My children's lives, how I can make more money, human nature, life after death, heaven and hell, right and wrong.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out at my house,creating another musical masterpiece in my studio,practicing guitar, building a statue or repairing one... Maybe cleaning my statues...I find it difficult to just sit and watch television but I could do it if the show is good and I'm with the right person.
Even in my 20s and 30s I didn't really care about going out to bars to hang out… I have nurtured the ability to find happiness from within
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Living alone has it's perks but sometimes my sense of loneliness is overwhelming
