Feet on the Ground, Head in the Clouds


I'm a guy who calls the Chicago suburbs home. I post about once a week, maybe more if I have more to say. I mostly do text entries - not many photos. I tend to talk about what's going on, whether in my life, in the news, or new books/movies/music/TV. I'm a big fan of music; I probably have more than is practical, but not enough to be satisfied. I have my favorites in each genre - from opera and classical to country, pop, and rock.

Feel free to add me. I like getting to know people from across the U.S. and around the world. I like how LJ makes it possible to meet people you wouldn't normally meet and see other perspectives and viewpoints. Since my journal is friends-only, if you add me but change your mind later, no hard feelings. I don't comment on every post, but I comment when I have something to say.
