Leaves from the Garden

But wisdom, where shall it be found? And where is the place of understanding?

My interests are fairly typical geek, with some hippie thrown in. They include comic books, role-playing games (tabletop and LARP), video games (especially retro consoles like SNES), tinkering with computers and Linux, good science fiction and fantasy of all types, movies (particularly mind-fuck cinema like Lynch or Bergman), camping, burn festivals (think Burning Man, though I've not been to that one yet), skiing, cats (I have two, and am watching a third for a friend), and religion / mythology / the occult. Psychology also interests me quite a bit... I'm thinking of going into some kind of mental health profession eventually. For now, though, I'm a freelance computer support guy.

Although I'm not pagan myself, I tend to get along really well with pagans. The same is true with people who are in the SCA, into BDSM, poly, or furries... I have friends who are all of the above, despite being pretty vanilla myself. I tend to like things a certain way, but don't really identify as either dominant or submissive... it varies, as I think it does in most people.

I'm as likely to spend an hour having a philosophical, political or religious discussion with you as I am to spend that hour playing the Simpsons arcade game with you, or smoking a hookah with you... or all of the above at once, if you have the stamina. During that time, you'd probably be crawled upon and nuzzled by at least one or two of my cats, Mufasa and Nemo. I am a hardcore liberal in most ways, although I do believe pretty strongly in traditional marriage (in other words, if you're planning on having a kid together, that means you should get married). While I'm pro-choice, I think it's pretty gross to be using abortion as a regular form of birth control... it should really not be taken lightly. When it comes to issues like these, I always enjoy debating with someone who disagrees, as long as you're someone who understands that a person can disagree with you and still be worthy of respect.

The Pillar of Smoke has been one of my main projects for a while now. Have a look at it if you like, particularly if you want to know more about one of my main interests.
