a proud aspie southern liberal
I'm the oldest, smartest, best-looking and most humble of my siblings... I'm especially proud of my humility. 

I am a native South Carolinian, born in the midlands and raised in the Pee Dee. My family settled in South Carolina before the American Revolution. I was educated at Francis Marion College (now University), Furman University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (Wake Forest, NC). I describe myself as a liberal, as defined below. 

liberal: 1. not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry. 2. favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

My interests include anything dealing with technology, web & graphic design, autism,  civil/human/gender/disability rights, herbal medicine, words and clever phrasing, puzzles, acoustic music (especially guitar) and the quiet solitude of a mountain stream or uncrowded ocean shore.
