My self-summary
I like to walk. It gives me the time to think about what I'm seeing and change directions if I find something interesting. I like to cook ... although I must admit that I've never met a recipe I could actually follow. Well almost never. There is a flan so heavenly I wouldn't dare change it for fear my disregard would tip the cosmic balance.
I like being active and truly enjoy when I'm exhausted at the end of the day. Not every day mind you. Just those select ones where time weather and company permit.
Lately photography intrigues me. It might be because I can't take a picture worth showing to myself but it's more likely that I like to see how other people see.

I am calm, somehwat funny, and dyslexic
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the middle of a career change that, with enough luck, will allow me to do what I truly love to do: dig in dirt, think about why I might want to dig in dirt and - ultimately -talk about why my digging in dirt might be important to the world.
I’m really good at
Finding things, listening, and improvising when the unexpected happens.
My motto for this question is "Improvise and have fun".
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read all the time so when have the chance to read purely for pleasure I might revisit Fugitive Pieces, try a recent mystery, pick up any Booker Prize winner or stumble across a biography of an obscure artist/scientist/explorer/etc. I love films but haven’t been to one in ages. One of my - as yet unfulfilled desires - is to take a vacation to a film festival. Part of the fun will be in choosing which one to attend. Any suggestions?

My musical tastes change with ?? Right now I've been listening to the Be Good Tanyas, Arve Henriksen and whatever the band that lives in the house next door wants to play at the time.
Six things I could never do without
Never? Food, water and shelter (x2).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Okay enough already with the questions! I made an innocent misstep when I started my journey on this site in the in the Questions section. By the time I'd reached 30 or so I looked around the web-page to see what I'd fallen into. Over 3000 questions ?!?!.

My variation of this question.
I spend a lot of time admiring
the ways in which people are good.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm either out with friends or off in another world of words.
In case you're curious, many of them look quite a bit like this one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
While not private, many of my friends might be surprised to learn that: 1) the poetry section is usually the first place I go when I visit a second hand bookstore and 2) I like to iron.
You should message me if
If smiling isn't too painful for you first thing in the morning.
