About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To relearn what is means to be human from the perspective of the creator

ABOUT ME

Easy going, open minded, creative, warm, adventurous, active. I love taking care of my personal growth and exploring all the different ways that human development manifests. And most of all I draw my sense of purpose from taking a positive part in the growth of others.

Projects: Right now Im really into cooking. I am discovering my clarity and creativity in the kitchen are intimately tied to how Im feeling about life in the moment. Cooking has become, for me, a practice of staying in-tuned with myself. And it teaches me things about being human. I now understand what people mean when they say "the most important ingredient is love". When you love feeding people there's a deeper attention that goes into the cooking process: a kind of joy and satisfaction when people really enjoy my food ^_^

What else. I've a compilation of personal reflections that will soon turn into a book. I believe life is meant to be engaged, enjoyed and dove into. Work or play. Im exploring writing as ONE avenue of melding the two.

AND Im teaching myself discipline by building my abs. I'd like to actually be able to see them ^_^ defined. I want to see in the mirror what God sees when he looks at my abs. Then I can take the skills from that accomplishment and use them in other areas of life.

PHILOSOPHY

LIVE.LOVE.GIVE..I hope the "All about you" section is a good window into my philosophy. I really have no definitive golden rule beyond love is the highest law. I believe if ya take care that your thoughts and intentions come from a place of love your feelings and actions will follow and that makes for all-around good living.
