More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

I am generally quiet and reserved, I like to think a lot. But still I like to have fun sometimes too:p I joke around a bit and I have sense of humor, I think...
I live in a small town in central Utah.
I Love music, but I have zero talent in the area. :/
I work at a sporting goods store.
I like sports and physical activities in general, some of my favorites are: Football, tennis, baseball, wrestling, biking, running, hiking, fishing, climbing.
My favorite major sports teams are Vikings, Rockies, and the Jazz.

I like mountains and trees, especially fruit trees. I have many fond memories of going up to the old cabin my grandpa built or playing out in the orchard my dad planted. I enjoy reading books and playing games(board, card, video, sport, group). I Love ice cream! I also enjoy building computers. I have an amazing wife and I love her to the extreme!

About My Navel

It's... Well it's there, probably been there as long as I can remember. It's an innie, kinda, doesn't go too far in though. There's SOO much more I could say about it, but I'll just leave it at that. Besides, a little mystery never hurt anyone.

"Never is too long a word even for me..." - Treebeard

"All things begin and end as stories" -Ragnar Lothbrok

"What's at the back of your mind?
Oh, your face I can see
And it's desperately kind
But what's at the back of your mind?" -The Smith's

“Whatever happened? A breach in the very unity of life, a biological paradox, an abomination, an absurdity, an exaggeration of disastrous nature. Life had overshot its target, blowing itself apart. A species had been armed too heavily – by spirit made almighty without, but equally a menace to its own well-being…

So there he stands with his visions, betrayed by the universe, in wonder and fear. The beast knew fear as well, in thunderstorms and on the lion’s claw. But man became fearful of life itself – indeed, of his very being” (Zapffe)

“Apart from the fact there is no normal standard of health, nobody has proved that man is necessarily cheerful by nature. And further, man, by the very fact of being man, of possessing consciousness, is, in comparison with the [donkey] or the crab, a diseased animal. Consciousness is a disease.” (Tragic Sense of Life, Miguel de Unamuno)

"And the supreme beauty is that of tragedy. The consciousness that everything passes away, that we ourselves pass away, and that everything that is ours and everything that environs us passes away, fills us with anguish, and this anguish itself reveals to us the consolation of that which does not pass away, of the eternal, of the beautiful.” (Tragic Sense of Life, Miguel de Unamuno)
