Introduction

Well to tell you about me, I have been able to sort out the fact that vegetables aren’t hatched and chickens aren’t planted; you don’t need an elephant to kill an ant and one does not trade a cow for a chicken, or light a candle in the sun, so that counts for some intelligence. What I learned as a child is that you don’t jump out of a second story window with a sheet and yell “Up, Up and Away!” I think that I have left lots to fight over…. I am not greedy. I am trustworthy, extroverted, and well educated I think, but then every cook thinks that his dunghill is the best. I am still working on prime wisdom. I tried to recall in time gone by  when I found me in what I saw as the world of dog-eat-dog mentality and I felt lost in those times in a substantive, spiritual and living truth way, even looking in eyes of givers from their laps.  I am intuitive or at least I believe in the importance inner life, but in this regard I am no clairvoyant that’s for sure; and this is not really clear. I don’t want to be as clairvoyant as "Miss Cleo" (the infamous fortune teller now living in that great American institution of basic learning for people with sticky fingers) that I do know. I seek the dreams that I deserve with each step I take. I also try to keep faith in my doubts. I believe laughter is deeply encouraging in difficult times, I think~ well I hope so? I have this theory that there is growth and transformation in laughter; who knows what religious icons could have save themselves burning, and poking and stabbing, and blood letting if they used laughter~ they could have transforms millions, well I couldn’t say that Pontius Pilate could have taken a joke but I would have tried, you know Pride before Destruction. I made this pact with myself and its’ called “My Bill of Indublities” and my First Amendment is to never argue with an idiot they have more experience. Yogi Bera championed my Second Amendment and it is “don’t take yourself too seriously because nobody gets out of life alive.” My Third Amendment is never play for a tie, buy one! I am adventurous and open-minded but not empty headed. I am creative or is it resourceful I have never been able to really decide on that one. I am sensible, playful, cultured, social, moderately successful (I can afford to spend what I am spending). I know that you cannot reach the rainbow until you have gone through the rain. If I thank you, you can see the gratitude in my smile and my heart in my eyes. I am in my middle flirties! I like to spend time alone but this is not the way I want to wind up in life, needless-to-say, right! I am a great father, good friend. I am fair…in a subjective way ethically. I find that I don’t have an attitude problem; some people have a perception problem and me too sometimes. Although, I do realize that some days I won’t be the pigeon but the statue. I believe that laughter is deeply encouraging, I think, well I hope so?  My theory is that there is growth and transformation in laughter; who knows what religious icons could have save themselves burning, and poking and stabbing, and blood letting if they used laughter they could have and transforms millions, well I couldn't say that Pontius Pilate could have taken a joke but I would have tried, you know Pride before Destruction.  know that the only time that success comes before work is in the dictionary. I’d say that I am a great cook, but then you have to remember the dunghill theory! I still believe in opening doors and pulling out chairs and I am “color-blind” as well, I maybe a renaissance man, who knows?. I love science and astronomy; I think that if I had a clone it would be a Scientist. I say bless you when someone sneezes. I am spiritual not religious, considerate, romantic, sensual, and I love deeply and passionately. I believe in love at first sight or not. I am caring and generous but not stupid. I look people in the eye when I talk to them. I am diplomatic I think; that means I can make people see that both of us are wonderful, or is this common sense-ical. I am a leader, and a good follower; a good dancer (Dunghill!). I am a risk taker… I always need a parachute. I am confident and tactful.... I don`t turn in to “attack dog” with words in an argument.... I don`t do melodrama; I’ve learned that I can’t choose how I feel, but I can choose what I do about it, and I know that I am hopelessly flawed too. My favorite author is Alexander Pope, I find Shakespeare is good to read again and again, I am impressed with Marta Monahan, Paul Ferrinin, Sir Isaac Newton, Henrik Ibsen, and the poetry of Czeslaw Milosz but it takes time to wind your way through the labyrinths of his wisdom, I like W.E.B. Dubois, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Shelly and Keats...oh, I like to read. What will this day be like, what will my future be, let’s see. My heart was born in deep silence with the strength of a giant, but like the spirit of life, made for sincere love. I will and cannot build a mountain nor can I catch a rainbow, but I will be there when you need me and that you can count on. And this is my story and I’m sticking to it!!!

Survived 16 years of educaiton, with 2 kids...what I have come to learn on my own hasn't helped either! But for the most part I have learned that the truth is the best and there are two versions of that ...the truth of the facts and the facts of the truth which if told seperately you become a lawyer or second jawbone with out a cause.
