I was born around the age of 20. That's when true consciousness hit. Since then, I occasionally fall victim to spiritual and mental narcolepsy, something I chalk up to the rigors of dealing with corporate life and the minutia of the day-to-day. When I am awake and alert, I apply myself to a life of rock climbing, musicianship, and otherwise feeding my brain with books and conversations with my wife and friends. I also have a cadre of animals, all of which I'm very fond.
