Mostly or Entirely Mythology

Born to speak all mirth and no matter.

I'm earthy, a bit of a loose cannon, eclectic, dyslexic, insatiably curious, definitely a free spirit, an evolutionary dead end, a realist, and I don't suffer fools gladly. After decades of roaming, I suddenly find myself in New England. The only thing I've found I can really depend on is that I've been wrong about almost everything.

As with a lot of things, all the really good stuff is 'Friends Only', but I'm always willing to add interesting new people.
