friends around the world
immortality and a good shrink
the gentle touch of a loving woman
the stimulation of a worthwhile project
pago pago and the straits of malacca
having built my '47 harley knucklehead, skydiving, flying ultra-lights, scuba, trekking thru redwood forests, school daze, 4.0, living in a jungle, howler monkeys, babies growing, runs of pool, first drink, last drunk, the rathskeller, sunshine on the inside of my eyelids, making gifts for friends, '71 vw camper, mayan shaman and garifuna spirit-talker, haight-asbury, dead/airplane concerts, belize, whale shark riding, peg, lea, arvantine, linda, li, and whatshername - memories all that have broken and repaired me
you can create
you feel better when you're in good shape
you are willing to work on environmental and social initiatives
you are not a repugnicon
you are not a greedy bigot with no heart (same as above)
you know that the more love you give, the more you make
you revere nature
you can imagine an ex-marine and ex-hippie
you like to think - hopefully read and contemplate more than vege in front of the boob tube
you know that sometimes older is much better
you get excited about smiles that reach the eyes
you want a full, interesting trip on earth
you are looking for a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.
you are tired of clones, hucksters, players, those with unrealistic dreams and no way to achieve them
you want someone real and accessible
hey! maybe this one turned out rather well.
i'm the same avatar at that g place dot com. have i piqued your interest?
hope your day gets better and better.
