GeneralI enjoy, and practice when possible, live-steel sword fighting, bare-knuckle and NHB events, Karate kumite and kobudo, marksmanship and combat pistolcraft, strongman events, primitive living skills, and traditional as well as stick-bow (primitive) archery. I also write poetry, draw and 'paint' with pastels, practice caligraphy, make papier mache sculptures and masks, and play abit with embroidery. I'm currently practicing with crayons to develop a technique of fine art with that medium. I am a student of human nature. I am an avid seeker and scholar of human sexuality both in text and in practice. I make love every day and have sex just as often. I'm a devotee of making love with my mouth. And there is nothing like slow, tender, lovemaking. Never the less, a good hard fuck with some slaps and hair pulling can be delicious. A gift from the Divine that touches on the Divine. It is all good. In the same physicality, I also really dig fisticuffs. I'll throw down with anyone, anywhere, anytime. A good fist-fight is fun for all. For my intellectual masturbation I read at least two hours a day, everyday. It is not enough. Fiction and non-fiction - natural history, texts on cosmology, and varous works on intellectual history are fodder for my cerebral pyre. Likes: Anarchy. Utopia. The color black. Sex, sexuality, and sexual tension. My hot wife. Being sweaty. Cool sheets. My children's smiles. Salvidor Dali and Pablo Picasso. Hot tea. Butterfly Kisses from My Little Girls. Pirates and Piracy. Being a Pirate. Egyptian, Sumer-Babylonian, Tuetonic, Celtic, and Indo-European Mythology. Voyeurism. Biting. Being alone, and wide awake, at 4 am. Thunder and lightning. Sex in the morning.

TelevisionI've never been a TV watcher. I threw the television out over a decade ago. I can't stand its corporate stink or the mind-numbing drivel; cultural detritus.

About me:I love my wife, I love my children, I love my parents, I love my sister, and I love my friends - and I tell them all so unashamedly. Proud punk & 'skater trash' since '77. Non-conformity is the nature of the movement! Oi! I'm chief of 'my' tribe & Medicine-Man of 'my' clan. Warrior, poet, king. Former soldier with service in multiple spheres. Now - Enlightened pacifist and peace activist. Still a warrior, just no longer a soldier. I'm a neanderthal in a man-suit; hairy, bearded, thick-trunked, and muscular - and I am satisfied in my masculinity. Middle-aged sojourner on the road less traveled. Living the life well-examined, out of the box, with my wife and (currently) eight children at home. All of them are mine, all with a midwife in a home-birth. My eldest child (which makes nine) is not mine biologically, but I raised him. He is married and lives on his own. I and my family reside 'somewhere that's green' in the state of Texas. Unschool and home-faith family. Writer, artist, and bookseller. Logical abstractionist drawn to the symbolic and the archetype. DIY advocate and voluntary simplicist. Eschews television. Killed the TV 15 years ago. I've never seen an episode of The Sopranos, Friends, Sex in the City, or any of that other mind-numbing detritus of our superficial culture; this cerebral wasteland known as America. At war against the corporatization of 'all things' and does NOT participate in trendy pop-culture. Down with capitalism & syndicalism! Viva anarcho-syndicalists! Hates professional sports. Libertarian with strong agoric leanings and communitarian practices. Holistic in mind and body, faith and living, pursuit and being. Understands the synergy of dichotic tension, the creativity wrought through the melding of differences, and willingly pursues such. Faith-healer and scientist. Committed to justice, equity, and peace. Seeking authenticity and truth. A follower of The Way. Student of mysticism, theology, mythology, historical spiritualism, occultic cryptozoology, and paranormal phenomenon as it relates to cross-cultural traditions and manifests in beliefs as varied as those of salvation to those of lycanthropy and vampirism. And yes, I do believe in the mysterious, the hidden, and the invisible... Practicing horticulturalist, herbalist and ethnobotanist. Gardens for food, fun, and wisdom. Pursues permaculture and organics as practices of sustainable living. Renegade landscaper. Consumes 'media' (books, film, magazines, blogs) to learn and 'become'. Entranced by language and the art of a well written phrase, the melody of poetic speech, and the subtleties of daily communication. Writes as vocation and passion; to eat and to bring clarity to the thoughts. Enjoys learning, reading, and repose. Relishes the exchanging of ideas, heated arguments, peaceful conversation, and intelligent dialogue. Gourmand and gourmet; gastronomic reveler, epicurean, and artist. Karateka of traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu. Student of Taiho Jitsu. Plays with iron, arrows, blades, and bows. Lifts heavy objects for fun and fitness. I'm an adventurer, seeker, and contemporary hoplite with a taste towards the unusual. As for my personal history? I'm a has-been military paratrooper, an aquaphobe experienced in SCUBA, an ex-free climber afraid of heights, and a former spelunker who has always been clausterphobic. I was a reconaissance expert and scout-sniper in my military career. I've trained in the martial arts since I was four. I once believed in the addage of living fast and dying young...I've been drowned, washed away in a flooded river, swept out to sea in an extreme undertow, attacked by a shark (no, I don't go in the ocean anymore), attacked by a monkey, bitten by a copperhead on the hand, bitten by a cottonmouth on the foot, wrestled an aligator, been impaled in a tree from a parachute jump, frapped in on a malfunctioned parachute (no, I don't jump anymore), moshed in more concerts than I can count, ridden three bulls, ran dozens of triathalons. I've climbed mountains, climbed cliffs, dangled off of precipices, and fallen 160 ft off of a cliff face and broken my back (No, I don't do that, anymore, either. Climbing or falling). I've rolled down a mountainside in a humvee. I've been blown-up in car. I've been cut too many times to count, I've been stabbed badly once, I've been shot twice. I've jumped from a speeding train. I've been mugged, jumped, and ambushed. I've had a heat-stroke & died with cardiac arrest. Yes, I died. Most recently, I was hit by a speeding semi-truck at over 100 mph, from behind, and rolled my 15 passenger van six times down the highway. I walked away. It STILL fucking hurts. I've levitated, projected my energy (chi), and passed through fire. I've talked to spirits numerous times. I've seen spirits numerous times. I've wrestled with demons on the astral plane, was attacked and choked by an invisible entity in my own bed, and have pursued and been pursued by such forces throughout my life. I've been a member of the John Birch Society and I've been a Communist. I've been a soldier carrying out oppressive orders as well as an activist in jail for a peaceful cause. I've been a hired thug, and I've also passed out food to the indigent and invited the homeless to stay in my house. I've eaten about everything that has swam, creeped, walked, crawled, or flown. I was an ethical vegetarian for seven years. I lived on the 'paleo diet' for a year. I'm a responsibilist omnivore, today. I've stood on the edge of nihilism with a gun in my mouth, and also at the entrance to Nirvana, with my hands in the air. I'm sure that EVERYONE has something valid to contribute to our development as human beings - I'm willing to listen.
