With an out-of-character fascination with high fashion.

PHILOSOPHY

Maximize the ability to understand one another.
Understanding other people has inherent value in life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once got a job selling dried insects to cure headaches from a Peruvian herbalist.

I was talking with her. She asked me to help. Ran off to use a restroom and gave me a sole.

Basic massage
Andean medicine
Banjo playing
history of medicine
dirt road philosophy
