** I think it's time for all creative souls to step forward. Make art, teach art, give art share your soul. see if that is what it will take to help stabilize what going on in the world today. November 2016
I’m a Humanist and a Buddhist and I meditate when I can, hey no one is perfect. I’m also a thinking man. I spend a lot of time in my head. I’m trying to grow into the man I would be the most proud of. I really like the guy I am but hey who can’t be better. Loving human kind for a sensitive man like me has proven to be more difficult than I could have thought. I have not given up, I just strengthen my mission.
I’m a good conversationalist and a better kisser. I'm a Photographer, Artist, Painter, Poet, short story writer, good cook and baker. So art and Music hold major place cards in my life.
I have a wonderful Partner who is supportive and inspiring. A nicer and sweeter man I could not have imagined. His name is Herschell

I know, I know I live in California so how can I complain. As I write this I can see that it’s 51 degrees and windy outside. It could be worse, yes I know, it could be raining or snowing. But it’s not, it’s just cold and windy. It was even nice a few days ago and there lays my problem. I loved it when the Sun came out and it was all warm and nice and people were happy. Even I had a goofy smile on my face and life seemed a bit better. Maybe I have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). It comes on whenever it is nice and then really cold, it makes my world a bit smaller. When it’s cold for a week or more I get used to that and deal (dressing in layers can be nice). You would think I would be used to it by now, I’ve lived in Northern California for 21 years and yes for those of you who don’t know this is Northern California. Not to be confused with sunny and warm Southern California were I spent my youth. If we get a week’s worth warm days in a month we’re happy up here. You know if I ran into a friend on the street who felt like I do I would tell them they should move to a climate that fits them better and feel like I was being a good friend by doing saying so. But I can’t seem to leave San Francisco and believe me I’ve tried; back to LA, Paris, San Diego, Seattle etc. But I always want to come back here. I have heard people say that if you have live in a place for 7 years as an adult you are bound to that place and it’s really hard to leave and if you do manage to leave you always yearn for the place you left. So after 21 years I am here to stay but that doesn’t mean I can’t complain with the best of them. Don’t get me wrong I love my city and if it was really warm here more people would stream in by the thousands. It’s a beautiful city and full of unusual people and things to do. I can never really be bored here, I just have to go out and ride the bus or walk on the street for entertainment. Every weekend there is something fun and/ or odd to do and I love that, if I go to it or not. This city has taught me more about myself than I’d ever thought possible. This city has seen me through great love and great heartache and shown me that more love is waiting. So yes it’s cold right now but I guess I’ll just tighten my scarf and put on my sunglasses with the rose colored lenses so at least everybody will look tan and beautiful on the outside, even if they are just as cold as me.
