In Search of. Looking. Wanting more. Not more stuff. More Life. As in, “something’s missing here”. As in, “There must be more.”
But beyond that, some things about me
- I was born in 1968, as a male, and fully intend to stay that way
- I have friends who are not the same gender of their birth
- I’m an introvert…if you don’t like that, go to the mall…you won’t find me there
- I say “hi” to people I pass on the trail, beach or sidewalk unless they give me the “You don’t exist” turn of the head.
- I care (most extroverts gasp and begin an immediate conversation about whether that’s even possible)
- I love quietness and contemplation
- I love talking to a good friend for hours and hours about deep and life-changing things
- I love the outdoor world: mountains, beaches, streams, lakes, sunrises and sets and all that goes with it: hiking, camping, backpacking, 4-wheeling, snowshoeing. I love doing it even more with a couple good friends
- I’m divorced.
- I feel much better about myself than I did before I was divorced.
- I was a Christian pastor for 18 years. Whew…..
- I’ve also worked as a bee-keeper welder/fabricator and carpenter.
- In May 2017 I achieved a career change by landing an IT job helping build a really cool computer system for a really cool operation.
- I love horses (almost like “teenage girl with blond hair, pink cowboy boots and horse pictures all over the wall of her bedroom” kind of love). I own one of them (horses…). And I said “almost“. I do not have pink cowboy boots.
- I believe in God as described in the Holy Bible, especially the New Testament
- I read my Bible almost every day.
- I almost never attend the “weekend magic” event that people mistakenly call “church”. I don’t like being manipulated.
- Every Saturday is my spiritual day. The whole day. I spend time with and among things I love…for the whole day. I never miss it. Never.
- I think Budda, Jesus and Eckert Tolle would have a lot of common ground to talk about.
- I hate jogging
- I love mountain trail and beach running. And I SMILE when I do it (I don’t look like I’m about to die)
- I miss my son, and my daughter…beyond words…
- I wish I had one good friend I could talk to face to face every week
