Hi I’m Warren
Let me tell you, I’m a really smart guy. My fingers are long and beautiful. I love the poorly educated. I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things. I have the best words. I’m also honored to have the greatest temperament that anybody has. I’m a very stable genius. It is what it is.*

I love great quotes. I’ve been collecting these over the years…
My take on people

A few of us
are shining lights of love.

Some of us
are self-serving, power-hungry, mean pieces of shit.

Most of us
want to do the right thing.

All of us
can do better.

My personal values

Kindness
You’ve heard the expression “namaste” – it literally means “I bow to you”, and more broadly “I honor the light within myself and all others.” Part of honoring the light is being kind to both oneself and all others. (I realize this conflicts somewhat with item two above, BUT I’M WORKING ON IT, REALLY!)

Honesty
We can’t really have any meaningful connection without honesty.

Reliability
I know it sounds like something one would value in a machine, but I believe that being reliable is more than doing what’s expected – it’s being there whenever you are needed.

Laughter
Imagine life without laughter. It would be a very grim existence. I love making people laugh and when people make me laugh. I love laughing with people. It’s strong medicine.

Health
We inhabit our bodies for a short time. I believe we should honor our body and mind as they move us through life by treating them well. Self care is not selfish.
