Y'all don't have to read this as I ramble. I just need to write.
My profile was written on Tribe.net in 2004 and has remained relatively unchanged since then. I was thinking about a rewrite but am leaning towards an addendum/ps. Here is one lame example of a rewrite.
Fun to be around
Willing to dare.
When something needs done, I step up.
If you need a shoulder, I'll be there for you.
I give great hugs when they really, really matter.
Dogs instinctively like and trust me. Most Humans too.
You can count on me for an interesting wide ranging conversation.
You can also count on me to do the unexpected.
I have a quirky sense of humor.
I am analytical. I tend to gather information and make the best decision that I can and live with the consequences
If my gut/spirit/whatever speaks clearly to me...I will make a 'Leap of Faith'.
I prefer to not to discuss Politics or Religion, but I will on occasion.
I am more 'Spiritual' than most, but I hate the Hippie Dippie New Age empty headed crap almost as much as I hate generic ((hugs)).
My Family is awesome. I've met folk on the road who had nobody. That's gotta suck ass!
Speaking of...I am Very, very proud of my Daughter!!!
I am a fierce reader. Sometimes a book a day, but if it's a good one that makes me think, I'll take my time.
Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi is my favorite genre but I enjoy most anything well written especially if I learn new things.
I'm something of a 'Luddite'. Fortunately I have many Tech minded friends (What's a 'cell phone'?).
I have broken my body down in service of. I have spent my last dime in support of. I have given to the best of my ability and been richly rewarded in ways most good Americans couldn't comprehend.
I have no regrets. If I had my life to live over I would do exactly the same!
I will not live my Life in fear. That is not negotiable.
If you need me to run Gate at a paying event, you can trust me to collect Thousands of dollars and not pocket so much as a twenty. You can rely on me. That said...I have screwed up in the past. I am human. When that happens, I do my best to make amends and if the injured party refuses to accept, well then...I walk the fuck on.
I am reasonably competent at just about everything except electronics and makeup.
I'm a damn good driver except when I'm drunk.
Aviation is a passion of mine, I am a 20 year Veteran of the USAFR.
When justified, I am capable of standing ground in defense of me and mine, and 'mine' includes many, many people!
I don't like anger. I don't know how far I would go in a 'Red Out'. I've been angry and in fights, but never hurt anyone badly.
I have loved well and been blessed with some damn good women in my life.
In the course of the last 53 years, I have ended up in many Leadership positions without seeking them out. I don't know why, but I tend to be the one folk look to.
I am an effective communicator and moderator. I prefer peacemaking to war.
I sometimes use humor to deflect uncomfortable emotions. When I do so, I am not being honest but sometimes it works.
I believe that we are all connected. Interactions with people are very important to me.
I believe that we can not do this thing called 'Life' alone.
At the end of the day, ultimately, it is up to me. But if you are willing to help, I will graciously accept it.
I am very aware of my Pride and Ego. It's tough for me to ask for help, but I am not too proud to ask for help on occasion.
Did I mention that I am very, very proud of my Daughter?
Whelp...that's just a few of the infinite things that make up John 'Kamikaze' Kelly. I'd write more, but it's time for a smoke and my coffee is getting cold. It's not that I don't like Y'all (well..mostly), but I've got my morning rituals. Read the paper, do the crossword, a cuppa and a smoke, shit shower shave...
