Life goes by so fast,
You only wanna do what you think is right,
Close your eyes and it's past,
Story of my life.

So I figured it's time to update this thingamajig. It's been a long time coming, since the last update to my bio was about six years ago. I've always been a firm believer that it's never too late to do anything, so here we go.

I'm only an egg, as Heinlein so eloquently put it. But that's reaching a bit too far, since I'm nowhere near that league. The best I could say is I'm always willing to learn, if not actually getting said learning into my head. There's been a lot of rough patches along that road, and I've taken my share of bruises. Both me and others have been through all that, and I want to be able to keep it from happening in the future.

Who am I? 24601? To start, I'm male, young adult who wishes he weren't so old already, looking for answers. My family has seen better days, I've done a rocky six years since I first moved away from them... which is mostly how things started down this path in the first place. For the moment I'm back with them - I wish I knew how long it would last. I moved out all those years ago to look for a job, and now that I don't have one again, I'm back here. I guess it's one of those "Circle of Life" kind of deals, but one that kicks you in the nuts instead of singing and dancing about the crown prince of the savanna.

There's an old saying that when the student is ready, a teacher appears. I don't know if I'm ready, but if a teacher appears I suppose I'll know the answer. I've had some bits and pieces and hints from other friends on the same paths of learning, but I need more. There's experiences that I can't explain, yet ones I want to believe. I keep hoping I'll have some answers that my conscious and unconscious can agree on. We'll see how that goes.

This won't be as long as the previous one. In fact, I think I put what I needed to right now. There's always time to update more as things change. This is proof. You grok?

Give me three more drops, and one more song
Oh Goddess, have I waited long
Enough to taste your sacred wine
Three more drops of the Divine.
