About Me An empiricist who goes as far as reason will take me, after which I extend faith. I accept the validity of intuition and the spirit, though I resist the temptation to allow emotion, visceral feelings or wishful thinking to influence my decisions.
  Introduce yourself to Jim
  Lifestyle
Pets 4 cats, missing pets that have passed  
Activist Aspirations Enthusiastic
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Religions yes, ecumenical  
Eating Habits lightly and often  
Wild Fact About Me When I was 17, I held my ground against 30 Kluxxers, armed with guns, clubs and knives, until help arrived. No situation is hopeless, unless you give up.
My Philosophy Live and let live, but do not tolerate bullies of any sort. Judge not, lest ye be judged. I am not one to cast stones.
What Gives Me Hope My grandchildren. I am also heartened by the resurgence of social activism among today's young people, which has been sorely absent since the days of my own youth in the 60's and early 70's.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by As President, I would push Congress to reform existing tax codes and scrap the Supply Side fraud, to institute a Keynesian economic policy and spread the wealth currently hoarded at the very top to all Americans, as it was in the `60's and `70's.
What/who changed my life and why The murders of JFK, RFK and M.L. King, Jr. taught me freedom and justice for all will always remain under assault by those who wish to deny these rights.
What Bugs Me People who see but prefer to be blind, cruelty, people who buy into packaged ideologies  
Passions writing, animals, my family, justice  
Inspirations the beauty of nature, Kindness in any form, People who refuse to give up, music  
What Scares Me War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference, the power of greed  
  Favorites
Role Models My father  
Quotation “No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country.” -- FDR 1938
Interests writing, people, animals, all matters relevant to life, working with my brain and hands, sports and entertainment, academia of all sorts  
Books multiple genre  
Music blues, early 90's rock, mid-60's to miid 70's rock  
Movies too many movies to mention, 1940's-50's film noir  
TV Shows Old Twilight Zone re-runs  
Favorite Foods enough for everyone  
Favorite Places outdoors  
Can't Live Without family, animals, spirituality, love, laughter

    Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves explores childlike stories of wonder through his surrealist paintings, capturing peeks of one’s internal daydreams through dual scene optical illusions

    Oh , yes they are, astonishing.. but, indeed, the mastery in this kind of photographs is largely due to the intuition, professionalis, luck and passion of the photographer....
    The "poor" dancer should have made the same action for hundreds of time...
    thank you for comment! You encourage me to make it better!
