Occupation: Screenwriter

Unique traits: I see things through a rainbow-mist prism of the sacredness of Earth, which puts me at odds not only with Earth-destroyers but some who, as for the future, would fabricate a technological wonder-world or theme park from the raw material of Earth. My creative vision is happy, conscious of blessing, yet confronts powerful Earth-degrading societal forces. I could cite as a literary strength a certain life-exposure, wide in its way, not having found my footing early but bounced around at different jobs, different settings, taken it all in, persisted long in a wade through life-ambiguity. Growing into 'adult understanding' I cast a wide net, more than I saw myself doing. It was bound to take a while before I would harvest the catch. In the late 1960's when I came of age, the notion circulated among young people of a life-learning process that took place, importantly, away from the classroom; when an emergent individual then "had his shit together," it meant something. I brushed with -- not a lot more -- those living that language then; yet long-term I feel it's kind of what has played out for me. I make light here yet am serious also.
