About Me I'm intelligent, a man, I'm friendly,
I'm a "do-gooder" down to my bones, but I try no to judge others (a trying task at times). I beieve you must walk in another's shoes before you can conclude anything about them. I believe in fun and pleasure and joy - life is short, death is long,really really long!
I'm a humanist-scientist - M.D. is my profession, and I love it because it requires the heart and the head to work hard.
I'm divorced with 2 boys, one who lives with me about 1/2 the time, the other less. (His gaming computer is at his mom's house). I'm engaged, and will be getting married in Feb or March. (Lord willing, and the creek don't rise, as they say in cyberspace.) My mantras:
everything works out: be patient.
"quick now, here now, always: ridiculous the waste sad time, stretching before and after." (T.S. Eliot). ("Death is the mother of beauty", Wallace Stevens.) My enemy is my teacher. ?Buddha?
Love has no pride, but it does have endless humility.

Wild Fact About Me I love Colombia! (The country). It is a place where people are the best and their worst . . . passionate, violent, idealists, corrupt, faithful and faithless. Cocaine, and flowers. It is a place to see the contradicitons in human nature - there are many brave,ordinary people, and there are many frightened sheep, and wolves. Civilization has a tenuous at best hold on the country. Incrtedibly alive and beautiful, ,nonetheless.
My Philosophy love is something you give. It is its own paycheck.
What Gives Me Hope the goodness of people, the beauty of the world.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by redraw the boundaries of all communites - towns, cities, counties, so that NONE had more than 100 people. (Congress would be Big)
What/who changed my life and why Viet Nam, where I was a medic. I saw wonderful people, and I saw violence, and felt it, and I learned that we all have far more bad, and sometimes more good, in ourselves than we think. Our choices define ourlives. Death is the last magic you will know.

Quotation It is not the critic who counts .. . . The credit belongs to the man . . . whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, . . . who errs and comes short again and again . . . who knows the geat devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt
