I'm usually willing and able to do or try most things. I can be an inattentive driver, and prefer walking to steering. I will try and follow a train of thought as long as possible, and if I should reach the end of the hallway I'll simply turn around and walk that idea/image back down to the other end. Though not a gloomy fellow I have been able to maintain, thus far, a stable balance between spontaneous dancing and existential despair. Cuddling helps.
I am intelligent, self-conscious, and wondering.
Soul work/gettin' back to the root metaphor (in the Jungian sense).

Musically, I seem to have tuned out once Michael McDonald left The Doobie Brothers so, yes, I'm mostly stuck in the 70s and 80s: Stevie Wonder, Sir Hall & Sir Oates, Joy Division, Blondie, Steely Dan, Electric Light Orchestra, Barry Gibb, Paul Simon, Echo & his Bunnymen, REM, The Smiths, Fleetwood Mac, Public Enemy, John Denver, ABBA, Tangerine Dream, Paul Williams, Giorgio Moroder...and Sam Cooke.

*How repellent and lazy contemporary movie poster design has become.
*Taking an uninflected concept, framework or image and placing it over another...then feelin' the fireworks.
*Combining my love of Elliot Gould with my fixation on men's facial hair into one grandiose fetishism.
*Empty buildings. (Space designed for many yet occupied by few.)
*A canopy of clouds, a touch of frost.
*How to get my butt in gear.
