Parent, entrepreneur, retired military officer. I enjoy photography, nature, and connections with friendly, rational people. I am spiritually oriented and have been so for as long as I can remember - this orientation forms my outlook on reality as best as can be discerned with my limited human consciousness.
I was once a solid GOP supporter for several decades, until the party moved away from me as they veered into extremism and submitted to ownership by the plutocracy. The world is more complex than a dumbed-down political ideology can address, more than a simplistic conservative/liberal dichotomy that the party faithful are expected to believe.
I believe one's worth or success in life is not measured by the size of a bank account or how many "toys" we die with. I think success can be more fully measured by how much we loved, how much we cared for others, and our efforts to leave the world a little bit better than we found it.
