19 November 2023

My name is Daemon. I am 55, and I live in Saint Louis, Missouri.

I am originally from Seattle, Washington, but have lived in several places over the years from Alaska to Florida, working as a (not in order) carriage driver, truck driver, music instrument technician, computer technician, handyman (including welding), cab driver, commercial fishing, stevedore, kayak outfitter, dish washer, cook, receptionist and more. I also served in the US Army, a powerful learning experience.

Along the way I have had some adventures kayaking and camping in Prince William sound, back-packing and traveling across the country, going to a couple Rainbow Gatherings and going through 4 hurricanes on a sailboat in Florida.

I have 5 brothers and 1 sister. I am the oldest. Most of us play musical instruments, as well as other artistic endeavors. My youngest brother died of suicide in 2009. My father also died of suicide in 1991.

I play guitar and various other musical instruments to varying degrees, write, read (fiction and non-fiction), think and tinker. Sometimes I watch a movie, documentary or old serial episodes. I like science fiction mostly. Everything is food for thought.

I spend a fair amount of time wondering about who we are and everything in the universe. I contemplate the nature of truth without regard for the existence of humans. Truth exists whether or not we do. Truth waits eternally for us to discover. It will never change.
