May 30, 2010Las palabras no bastan para decir todo lo que siento para este amiguisimo Ron, que siento en el alma y en las entrañas, muy mía, muy mía. Através del océano, desde las profundidades del mar me llega su canto.
May 1, 2010Ron reminded me that if I want something
I have to make the effort.
Thank You Ron.
January 7, 2010Ron is a MAN of his words,,
He stands by them with a fierce force, determination , devotion and drive.
Ron Rocks !!!
February 28, 2009Ron is a man of sweet hunger and I find that absolutely enticing!
November 21, 2007Ron is Total Godhead.
He's musical. He likes games and anime.
Did I say he was funny?
Ron's my kind of geek.
He's one of my favorite people to play phone tag with.
AND I trust him near my computer.
April 20, 2007Rock-and-Roll is the Bomb. Ron is the Detonator.
In the time i've known him i've had three mild strokes and one bruised knee as the result of his perpetual insistence on creating insanely ridiculous noise and/or humorous faces, causing great disruptive bouts of gut-achingly gregarious guffaws and brays, challenged only by the greatest of Gold Country Miners' Pack Mules.
plus, he gets my jokes... and that's sayin sumthin...
he ranks highly among the top ten most-brilliant people i know, not distinguishing between those with patents and those without.
he has a vast collection of black tshirts.
just don't ask him to pick a tie for you.

I'm a geek, and I can prove it. Been working very hard on my music demo, and I'm interested in meeting other musicians (specially singers) to collaborate with. I have an obession with Anime, and am a self taught 3D animator. If you like the arty type, I'm your man. Love to cook, make a killer expresso, latte, capucchino. I appreciate intelligent people, have a natural aversion to stupid people.
Have been doing cross-platform computer consulting since 1997. My company is well established here in the Bay Area, and I'm trying to grow it again. Tried to grow during the end of the "dot bomb" era, with tragic results. This time I'm taking the growth process very slowly and making sure that I have the incoming business to support growing. We provide end to end outsource IT services to businesses all over Northern California.
Have a few pet film projects I've been working on for many years now, including a powerful and controversial documentary I'm in the process of finding funding to do.
I am a 420 MMJ activist type so if you are offended by that, we shouldn't even bother.
Divorced, with a daughter that lives with mom in Folsom, CA. I'm 6'0" in decent shape for my age, strong of back, and not afraid to do heavy work. I have a fetish for clean laundry. Oh, and a few other fetishes as well hehe...

See the universe reflected in it's surface
Play a different string for a while
Surf a different cosmic wave
1 million channels of pure bliss
Raining down like pinata candy
Find the tuner for your frequency
Scan all available bands
Thoughts fly out like freed birds
Channels flip and come into focus
Static burns the backs of eyes
Commercials give way to the final show
Pretty colors flow in waves
Electrons dance a sequenced glow

The thorns protect
A gentle flower
With it's sweet perfume
Scars make stronger tissue
Wounds teach us to respect the blades
Yet we open our hearts
Again and again
Without fear or remorse
Without shame or indignity
We give ourselves to love
And endure it's sharp edges
Perhaps one day
The swordsman will put down the blade
Perhaps one day
The cuts and wounds will heal
I lay my sword at your feet
And suffer my wounds
In the light of your sweet smile
I wil... read more

There is a universe in a single drop of rain
There is a pattern if you watch the dancing flame
There is the answer in a still pool of water's surface
Feel the Divine Love flow from you as it does from us all
Feel the touch of the Sun Goddess Hand
Shining down on you like sunshine
Illuminating your path

Children of the stars

Minutes flow into hours
Seas flow over the sea floor
Earth moves over its core
Winter flows into Spring
Years flow into Decades
Time flows into Eternity
It's just a blink in the eye of a tree
Thoughts flow into actions
Words flow into songs
Wind flows across a desert
Stop and watch our footprints dissolve
Children flow into parenthood
Tides flow into the shores
Moonlight flows into my heart
I watch and wait for my love to return

Shoot a hummingbird in the dark

A crackle of sound
The din of drums
Heard all around
Flames from my mouth
Notes billow forth
Rock and Roll
Flames leap out
From the depths of my soul
The crowd roars
A channel opens
When is the next one?
Goddess only knows

So much love
So drama free
A pure delight

The factory of dreams
Tonight I feel
How beautiful it seems...

She fills my eyes with her presence
Winter's fury can do nothing to stop her
She only needs a moment
To spread her love over
Every leaf and blade of grass
Her smile is blinding
Her heat indominable
She fills me up with light and hope
Her energy sustains me
Her power sustains us all
As she rests, so do we
