I enjoy a variety of pursuits, including writing, teaching, discussing ideas over a good bourbon and my smoking pipe.  I soak in as much outside air as I can once the average temperature goes below 84º.   I love winter and despise the summer.

I’ve been a Christian most of my life, but have left that and am now an agnostic theist who figures there is probably something going on beyond the senses.  However, I do not see any evidence of anyone having definitive insight into what that might be, so we are all making our best attempt to live together on this earth in the short time that we have.

My favorite sport is Brazillian Jiu Jitsu.  It is a perfect blend of art, technical movement, and force.  I will train BJJ until I am on my deathbed, at which point I hope to have improved beyond my blue belt.
