I like dogs, ice cream and smiles. . . . all kinds. I'm drawn to so many simple pleasures: sunrises, sunsets, the stars only seen on clear nights far from city lights, holding a baby, holding hands, Mexican food, sharing an intimate moment, good coffee, unconditional love by dogs, watching unique patterns of flames in the fireplace, silence only experienced in the mountains, the woman I'm lucky enough to love more than any of these.
