I am an average guy with the following caveats: never married, funny and well-read with three university degrees. Most would describe me as an independent thinker, humorous, creative and loyal with an interesting perspective on life and its challenges. I am also well traveled (35-40 countries), adventurous, a responsible risk taker (in an entrepreneurial sense) by nature and look forward to my next journey to faraway places cloaked with optimism. For example, I am 65 but prefer to look and feel about myself in terms of Celsius which means I am really 18.3 years. Great, I feel better already, see what I mean? Yep, life is all about attitude…that's my story and I'm sticking to it, at least for the time being.
Keeping a healthy balance seems to make sense and in this regard I turn to the time-proven dicti of Satchel Paige, the 'ole time baseball player, who mused:
1) Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood.
2) If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.
3) Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.
4) Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain’t restful.
5) Avoid running at all times.
6) Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you.
Yeah, that Satchel, some sage, no?
In summary, an accurate description would reveal a creative thinker and problem solver with diverse interests, laughs easily and believes that any young man who hasn't read Jules Verne has missed a great author.
Twain once opined “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in the sails. Explore. Dream. Discover!" Makes sense, yes?
Mostly I'm "curiouser and curiouser"; unfortunately this does not include NASCAR or motorcycles. If these activities ring your bell my guess is that we are not a match. However, if you ever wonder why Wednesday has a "d" in it then we just might be a match.
Coffee, lunch, hang gliding, bungee jumping...you know, the usual first-date stuff...or dancing at Antwerp Station ( see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EYAUazLI9k )
