To be part of the revolution
I don't think one can be encapsulated in a profile. I'm very laidback and easygoing, and all about effecting change on this fragile planet. I appreciate lowbrow humour equally as much as sophisticated satirical humour. I am up for virtually anything, whether it be venturing into the South Side of Chicago to go to a blues bar or going on midnight summer hikes in Iceland.
Do what you love and spread the love and positive energy.
