About me

Gender MALE
Introduction I started out as a kid. I faked my way through the majority of my adult years and now that I am retired, I am working hard to get back to where I started.
Interests I love art, especially the two-dimensional type, and in particular the sketch. I love music and I'm finding that as I evolve in time and space, I like the soft rhythms of the old bossa nova sounds, especially when I am relaxing with a book or my sketchbook. I love movies and the escapism they provide from the daily squalor of stores, and television, and overall busy-ness. I love writing. And I love retirement, best.
Favorite Movies Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski, Charade, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, To Kill a Mockingbird, Midnight Cowboy, Rear Window, A Clockwork Orange, American Graffiti, Fargo, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Mad Mas, Mystic River, Reservoir Dogs, Tombstone, Sling Blade, Cinema Paradiso, Blow Up, Seraphine, As It Is In Heaven, Dirty Pretty Things, Volver, The Lives of Others, Maria Full of Grace, and many more.
Favorite Music The Gotan Project, Brazilian Bossa Nova, Most all Beatles and Beatle covers, the Stones (though I have never purchased any of it). I like music that fits the event, mood, or time.
Favorite Books Way too many. I enjoy Steinbeck's and Hemingway's works. A lot.

Have you read, "The Boys in the Boat"? Do!!!
