No surprises here – you already know my views of the world tend to be a bit pragmatic. I’m fascinated by the origins and uses of language, and I love all things organic and pure. Children are a wonderful mystery, as are honeybees, or anything with unfettered innocence. I’d like to extend my life, not shorten it, thus I avoid anything or anyone abusive or toxic. I love loud raucous music, the quiet of the forest, and extended periods of revelry with no dwindling of conciousness. I am awake, and a feeling human being.
