Contract aerospace designer, working in the Denver and San Francisco Bay area. Single (divorced) and catching up on a shunted youth. Looking for the meaning of life but trying to avoid the sinkholes. Artistic but not obsessed. Two left feet but not all thumbs. Opinionated but not pigheaded. I see civilization as if it is caught in a technological whirlpool and in bad need of divine intervention. I see our national mantra of "price, quality and delivery" as having eroded into "greed, growth and profit". There are better days ahead, particularly for those who see this as the beginning and not the end.
