Profile Information

Relationship Status (single, partner, etc):
Married
My Story:
Former Mormon---and former Utahn. Living in Eugene Oregon with Wife and three kids. I am interested in the continuous dance between the individual and Religion and the outcomes of the interaction.
I am happily on the fence concerning the existence of supernatural beings, Deities, Buddhas, fairies unicorns etc. If asked whether god exists I will answer 'maybe'

My current Religious practice includes bowing before a statue, giving the statue oatmeal and coffee in the morning, sitting on a little cushion and staring at a wall, most importantly trying to live well in the world without causing my self or others pain.
Interests and Hobbies:
Hiking, playing with my kids, cycling, talking to my spouse, cooking for eating and for fun, long road trips, flapping my jaw with others about philosophy specifically Buddhist, and other religious philosophy. Swing dancing, Bluegrass and folk festivals.
Favorite Books:
The Dharma bums, Another Roadside Attraction, Jitterbug Perfume,Skinny Legs and All, The Electric Kool-aid Acid Test, One Flew Over the Cuckoos nest, Howl and other Poems, Big Sky Mind, The Dhamapada,Ecclesiastes, Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff, Middlesex, The Master and Marguerita, Generation X, anything by Michael Chabon. Where the Bluebird sings to the Lemonade Springs and other Wallace Stegner books, most of Terry Tempest Williams books, Desert Solitaire, The Monkey Wrench Gang, Mountains and Rivers Without End,
Favorite activity after mormonism?
Doubting. oh yes and my wandering eye(I'm married not dead)

I didn't know there were any! Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone, aimlessly wandering the metaphorical woods (I aimlessly wander the literal woods all the time, I'm horrible at navigation)
