Good evening!

I hope everyone is faring well. I'm John & I've had this journal since 2001. It's twice-resurrected and no, I'm not looking for the trifecta in the future. I enjoy this medium of expression and interaction. everyone else, I'm looking for some new friends.

I typically write about my adventures and explorations at work and outside of work. I have a job where I help people, even if it's just taking the time to listen to them, laugh with them or hug them when they cry (I work the streets of Seattle and vicinity). I also post photos as well & love bird photography.

I've been around the block more than a few times and I am a formerly homeless recovering addict/alcoholic with a BA in psych that I can actually apply from time to time and not just toward myself. I do write about things I'm working through in myself. I wrestle with depression, self-criticism & cynicism sometimes but things get better with each passing day.

In terms of interests, I'll spare you the list, as it's in my profile. This is getting pretty long already. Anyways...

I try to be an understanding friend and genuinely care about people, at times to my detriment. Why? Because that's just how I roll.

If you wish to, please feel free to add me and leave a message and I'll reciprocate. It might just be fun! If not, no hard feelings ever.
