I value honesty and self assessment. I love comedy and how it can be used to expose hypocrisy in society. I also dabble in art, though it gives me an appreciation more than anything else. I tend to write shorter pieces, poems mostly. I love music, and listen to a wide variety. Expression is extremely important to me in whatever form it takes. I wish I was more disciplined.
I go through phases where my focus is on art for a bit, or guitar, or soccer or tennis or writing. But it does cycle back around, so please be patient with me. It does not help that I am not very prolific.
I am a perfectionist, and I don't believe anybody who gives their time to read something I wrote deserves anything other than the best that I know how to write. So I don't upload on a schedule, just when I feel a piece is ready. I also edit existing pieces a lot.
I honestly should read more than i do. i do enjoy reading and authors like hemingway, fitzgerald and a few modern authors and various poets. but i dont dissect and study books in order to learn nearly as much as i would like.
Overall my reasons for being on this silly site are mostly internal. I like to challenge myself to find new things in my world, the strange and wonderful, and find a clever, insightful, interesting and beautiful way of articulating them. And this is a forum to do that.
If you have a question, comment or critique about me or anything I write, let me know, I will address it if i can and I won't improve without critique, so please share your thoughts.
On a side note, the Portland Timbers are great, and pop up headlamps are still cool
