The debate continues as to whether or not it matters what gets written here. If it doesn't matter to you, then I'm not your man. While I have a razor sharp wit, it is but one of many facets. I have deep wells of passion, creativity, and compassion. Only the few people who know me well have truly seen this. I have been blessed with a loving, supportive family. I can't help but think that this shapes a person, their outlook, and what they pass on to others ( children). My experiences are rich and varied, having lived in two very different foreign cultures I studied classical piano learned to cook in France learned to ski in the French Alpes, watched a Japanese master making a kimono. I am still awed by a spectacular sunset and humbled by other people's brilliance and creativity. On the surface I am easy going below the surface, my passions run deep. I can be quiet and contemplative until a deep connection sets in. That's when the good stuff begins and life's riches unfold.
