70 year old male of Welsh and Cherokee ancestry. “Dreamer” personality, (would rather deal with what could and should be rather than what is), lots of fantasies and “visions”…or pieces thereof.
Does best to control his ego and vanity, but his ideas call him to occasionally express them in reality. At least as unique personality…of which We all are.
