I Am Me

Someone asked me how I describe myself as a person.  I had to think about that for a minute.  Here’s what I came up with.

I’m kind, generous, friendly, loving, and loyal to a fault (until you mess with me or someone I love).  I’m intelligent, I’m a reader, and I think for myself (I won’t tolerate anyone trying to tell me what to think or tricking/manipulating me into thinking the wrong things).  I’m a student of history, human nature, culture, and religion, and I draw my own conclusions based on my own research.  I enjoy the company of my friends, I crave my alone time to recharge my batteries, and my idea of a great evening is anything that involves being with my wife.  I’m a writer, a storyteller, a philosopher, and a resource for others to tap into.  I’m a lover of great music, art, literature, and cinema, but I also appreciate the irreverent from time to time.  I’m the knight in shining armor, the bard with pen in hand, and the little child seeing the world for the first time.  I am politically incorrect, historically accurate, unreconstructed, and unapologetic for my life and my beliefs.  I am a human who is striving for divinity, and a spiritual entity in a human experience.

I am me, and I plan to go on being me for as long as I am able.
