More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

I like mountains and trees, especially fruit trees. I have many fond memories of going up to the old cabin my grandpa built or playing out in the orchard my dad planted. I enjoy reading books and playing games(board, card, video, sport, group). I Love ice cream! I also enjoy building computers. I have an amazing wife and I love her to the extreme!

About My Navel

It's... Well it's there, probably been there as long as I can remember. It's an innie, kinda, doesn't go too far in though. There's SOO much more I could say about it, but I'll just leave it at that. Besides, a little mystery never hurt anyone.

"Never is too long a word even for me..." - Treebeard

"All things begin and end as stories" -Ragnar Lothbrok

"What's at the back of your mind?
Oh, your face I can see
And it's desperately kind
But what's at the back of your mind?" -The Smith's

“Whatever happened? A breach in the very unity of life, a biological paradox, an abomination, an absurdity, an exaggeration of disastrous nature. Life had overshot its target, blowing itself apart. A species had been armed too heavily – by spirit made almighty without, but equally a menace to its own well-being… So there he stands with his visions, betrayed by the universe, in wonder and fear. The beast knew fear as well, in thunderstorms and on the lion’s claw. But man became fearful of life itself – indeed, of his very being” (Zapffe)

“Apart from the fact there is no normal standard of health, nobody has proved that man is necessarily cheerful by nature. And further, man, by the very fact of being man, of possessing consciousness, is, in comparison with the [donkey] or the crab, a diseased animal. Consciousness is a disease.” (Tragic Sense of Life, Miguel de Unamuno)

"And the supreme beauty is that of tragedy. The consciousness that everything passes away, that we ourselves pass away, and that everything that is ours and everything that environs us passes away, fills us with anguish, and this anguish itself reveals to us the consolation of that which does not pass away, of the eternal, of the beautiful.” (Tragic Sense of Life, Miguel de Unamuno)

"Every single one of us has a fanged beast hidden within the depths of our mind. It lies there, waiting in the dark reaches of a person’s soul, and it appears at our lowest moment. It doesn’t matter how strong you think you are; when the beast comes, it is impossible to control. It can even end up hurting those who are closest to you. But if the monster can be tamed, reined in with the strength of your will…it can become a magnificent power, and can even make your dreams reality. Now, you must fight it! Obliterate the monster that the depths of your own mind created!"
Kurenai Yuuhi ~ Naruto

“One of the things that distinguishes man from the other animals is that he wants to know things, wants to find out what reality is like, simply for the sake of knowing. When that desire is completely quenched in anyone, I think he has become something less than human.”
-C.S. Lewis

"When thou hast looked on thyself, think of any other Caesar, and in the case of every one do in like manner. Then let this thought be in thy mind, Where then are those men? Nowhere, or nobody knows where. For thus continuously thou wilt look at human things as smoke and nothing at all; especially if thou reflectest at the same time that what has once changed will never exist again in the infinite duration of time. But thou, in what a brief space of time is thy existence? And why art thou not content to pass through this short time in an orderly way? What matter and opportunity [for thy activity] art thou avoiding? For what else are all these things, except exercises for the reason, when it has viewed carefully and by examination into their nature the things which happen in life? Persevere then until thou shalt have made these things thy own, as the stomach which is strengthened makes all things its own, as the blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it."
-Marcus Aurelius
