i like the view from where i sit. i'm even-keeled, devout, frugal, have a distinguished graying beard and enjoy a good chat. i'm fortunate to have found work that is a good fit and brings me joy. i do my best to keep myself abreast of world-happenings and like to visit some of the more off-the-path places now and again. (hoping to do a little walkabout in Kyrgyzstan in the near future.) let's see...i play soccer/fustsal as often as i can. i haven't had a tv in many years...rather, i've gotten to know good writers thru their writing. i like making things and growing things. (i dream about someday building a timber frame/straw bale home on a small hobby-farm.) while I appreciate loads of people, I am particularly drawn to folks with an interesting life story.
