Where should I start? Poet, philosopher, fisherman. My pop calls me a bum but that’s elitist, don’t you think? I can split wood, spread mulch, pour beer, and grow perfect tomatoes.
I’m an ace poker player, a shaman, and a wanderer in search of truth. I can drive a cab, a motorcycle, and ride a bull, but not for long. I shovel manure in an original artistic manner. As soon as I get my car fixed up, I will become a gypsy looking for a lost world.”
