I respect ideas that have stood the test of time and circumstance. I respect these slow-facts, this hard-won wisdom. I share my experience and where it fits in a larger body of knowledge. I’ve a particular interest in liberty.
I’m an engineering/physics geek and bleed on the cutting edge of technology every day. I’ve touched parts that are off our planet.
I’ve raised children with problems. I’ve been amazed by their strengths and weaknesses. Some are unstoppable, and some won’t get out of their own way on any given day. Try again tomorrow.
I have high standards of conduct and competence. That is true if you’re calculating stress and stain, writing a poem, singing a song or raising your children. In the end, performance comes down to people and their character, not their tools. What one person sees as scarcity the next person sees as abundance. People impress me, and I love sharing their inspiration.
That is a slow fact.
