Faith, hope, love, but the greatest of these is love…The words I’ve tried to live my life by…with mixed results. Still giving it my best, seeking those fleeting moments of enlightenment or at least transcendent beauty every day.

I’m a novelist, a third-rate poet and a passionately mediocre guitarist, looking to share some laughs and more. My prior life took me around the world (though Arabic is the only other language I acquired) and now I spend my spare time volunteering for a nonprofit and teaching classes here.

While I’m very physical, and fitness is an important part of me, I prioritize spiritual, intellectual, emotional engagement above everything. Some things that once made life beautiful to me aren’t immediately available here, some still are, but either way I still love: the warm softness of a snuggling kitty, the smooth familiar neck of my guitar, my hand sliding up the frets. I love that loose-limbs sensation after a sprint, the sense of release when I type the final word of the final chapter, the quiet pleasure of a shared smile across a crowded room. I love the sun on my skin, the scent of sandalwood, and the feeling of completion when my house is spotless. I love hot tea with cream early in the morning, quiet evenings, no distractions, the final strains of a heart-moving song the only sound. More than anything, I love to share the beauty and bittersweetness that is life, exploring humor, faith and joy two can create together.
