Introduction I'm a forty-something guy with a penchant for the creative arts. I have a passion for music, movies, poetry, cooking, metal working, fly-tying, and calligraphy. These are the most visible of my creative abilities. I like to think that I have an open-mind to learn new creative veins. I've spent one career where my creativeness went pretty much untapped and am looking for a second one to be able to use that part of me that yearns to be free. Creativity to me is a precious freedom that needs to be waved like a flag. I have strong family beliefs and belief in a loving and living God. I love exploring nature and trying to connect its pieces.

How many licks does it take to get to the chewy center of a Tootsie Pop?
