The one thing I am passionate about...
I like good conversation, where people listen and are open to new ideas. I read magazines, books, anything really, and like to talk about the four things you aren't supposed to talk about. I love comedians, movies, and science fiction. I liked Gravity and The Martian, but I loved Arrival and read the original short story years ago. Mindhunters was fun and stylistic, but can't hold a candle to the esoteric weirdness of first season of True Detective. I am recently separated with shared custody of my son and still adjusting to the lifestyle.
I typically spend my leisure time
Drawing, painting, exercising, watching movies, reading, sometimes writing. I build furniture, am a decent cook, and setup my own wifi. I like to drive to a park and run the trails surrounded by trees - running on the side of a road eating car exhaust is a lot less appealing to me.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who understands reciprocity and can really understand another person's perspective. I would like a grown-up who can take responsibility for their actions. How to frame this in a more positive way - someone with good boundaries and an understanding of them. Someone who knows how to bring an argument down, and not to just pour gasoline on every misunderstanding. Throw in some experience, and a dash of wit, and we should be good.
The first thing people notice about me
I look stern and mean - until I smile. Then I look friendly and easy-going, but that is not my first impression.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am reading the book that inspired MindHunters on Netflix. It is a history of how Behavioral Sciences got started at the FBI. Engaging, fun read through the 70's and 80's.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my son and his wild spirit
- I am thankful for time I have for family and projects.
- I am thankful for prosperity and opportunities
