My self-summary
People tell me my life seems fun and special. However, I know there are mundane and even boring moments in my existence. As time goes on I think I appreciate the boredom a bit more (it seems more like just peace and quiet).

I'm inquisitive -- often searching for the answers to something. Yet I also have a very "laid back" personality and tend to take things in stride.

I am nosy, obscure, and intellectual
What I’m doing with my life
Semi-retiring. Sculpting. Still learning to see, not just look.
I’m really good at
Taking heaps of information and sorting through it to get at the good bits. Helping people figure out what they want to do. Leading quietly and by example.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm skinny and wear glasses. That I tend to smile a lot. Perhaps a bit of roguish twinkle in my eye.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Little, Big by John Crowley, Norstrilia by Cordwainer Smith. Local Hero (Bill Forsyth), Excalibur (John Boorman). Cool jazz, anything Stereolab-ish. Stinky cheese and great wine or beer.
The six things I could never do without
Randomness, allegory, purpose in life, personal freedom, hope, March Madness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes people who are really different from me the way they are. Time. How I can best help others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Leaving the scene to the kids, curling up with a good book, and waiting for Saturday night which is a little more my style.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My knees are rather knobby.
You should message me if
You have the urge.
