It appears my purpose in life is to... bring cookies to the hospital? http://ow.ly/MZK3B

Don't you dare paint my fingernails.

Egg-in-frying-pan: A bad egg, perhaps? Or "this is your brain on drugs"? :/ ... I got an 'hourglass' emoji for how I was going to die, so... old age I guess. :) (Do people even die from old age anymore?)

Out beyond ideas of wrong and right there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about. -Rumi

Majestic old snag, Boeing Creek park in Shoreline. This is a tall, awkwardly shaped picture, but worth it.

Now and then, Seattle's morning air is rank with the smell of fish. But it's good to know there are still fish.

Literature is more progenitive [than visual art]. It is at once more universal and more poignantly particular. -Tolkien

Story
Introduction

I am a druid, linguist, and author. I write about meditation, relationship with Spirit, soulful fulfillment in scholarship and art, reconnecting the ancient with the modern, creating beauty, and healing the world.

Professionally, I am a computational linguist, with a focus on socio-linguistics, historical linguistics, lexical semantics, and lexicography. I have a keen interest not only in the minutiae of the working of the human mind and its manipulation of symbols, but also the broader patterns of social change and development. I have published papers on conversational implicature, dialect analysis, lexical semantics, and syntactic universals.

Spiritually, I was raised Zen Buddhist in the culturally conservative South, and am now a revivalist druid. I have worked in the fields of internet search, text-to-speech processing, and the defense industry, and am the father of four children. I live in Seattle, WA with my wife Ali and our black cat, Cu Gwyn.
