I just started school again after 23 years away. I'm liking it. I enjoy music, photography, art, singing, playing drums and writing.

I'm single and ride a bycycle (maybe some connection there)

I like to laugh but I'm also devoted to spiritual affairs; they are not mutually exclusive.

I am anti-war; an old hippie at heart.

Why not to ask an audience for liquer?

cause you'll get booze!
