Entering my early 40′s, and still learning about life.
My life has been a series of changes, always adapting to my new understanding (or mis-understanding) of life, myself and those around me. No shame in being wrong, but there is much shame in being stubborn. Been married 2 1/2 times (two marriages, and one engagement) Found myself following varied religious paths, but any involvement of secular religions have been because of the wishes of other people. Myself, I find a sense of there being some sort of greater power, but have never found any organized following that hasn’t turned it into something self-serving.
Rather then following the typical path of aging that cause one to become more conservative as they grow older, I grow more liberal every day. It’s been a difficult path to follow, because it’s involved throwing away many long held beliefs. As time passes, I question the motives of anybody choosing to become involved in politics, and mistrust the government as a whole, because their actions are based on an agenda that only involves their own interests, and no longer represent the interests of the general public. There are too many people out there that feel that they have to enforce their views and values on anybody they wise.
My general interest present a interesting juxtaposition of values. I love the outdoors, and all that is simple and nature. My dream is to live in a cabin in the woods away from the cities and masses. But, I love all things that are techy and geeky. The gadgets, the toys, the internet. My cabin would have high speed internet. I consider myself to be sort of a hippy-geek.
I work in IT for a very large non-profit. I like to be with people and gatherings, but love my time alone at home. I come across as a very social, easy going person, but in reality I’m a very introverted person with lots of hangups and buttons.
I’m not longer who I was, nor am I who I will be. I may have suggested smoked sausage yesterday, but I don’t like it today. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know.
