Biographical Information

Location: Minneapolis

Gender: male

Occupation: Preoccupied

Birthdate: November 1, 1946 (68 years old)

Interests: Music, movies, books, food, dogs, politics, people (they're kind of required for the rest of it).

Biography: Bear type old gay guy. The fires of the heart cool as we head towards the October, November or December of our lives.

I am no longer working and I am much happier than I have been in years. I miss very little of the non-profit sector I labored in for 40 years. Now I can be the highly influential, much-sought-after intellectual I always wanted to be -- provided I think of a highly influential much-sought-after idea. Ah well, one of the tasks of old age is recognizing that some things one wanted are not going to happen and other things one didn't want are.

On many days I feel like a young man (other days, not so much) and on most days I prefer to think of myself as at least a fairly radical person.

  • BitterCrank [Mar 28, 2015 - 9:15 PM]: It's OK for pilots to be in the 4th dimension -- time. 5th dimension, not good.
