Hi. Nice to meet you. Please, sit down and make yourself comfortable. Care for a cup of coffee? I keep meaning to buy some of that fancy stuff, but first I have to get through this drum of Maxwell House that's been taking up space in my freezer. No? How about a tea? I also have Fresca if you'd like something cold. You're good? Okay.
So, forces that work in mysterious ways have stopped you on my profile and now you've made it this far in the "personal essay" section. And now you are wondering "shall I read further? who IS SmokeyB?". Well, let me tell you...
I wasn't born a Torontonian but having lived in this booming and bustling city for nigh on 16 years I feel that the energy and hidden beauty of this young metropolis has worked its way into my very marrow. I like it here...but let me be honest: I need to see the rest of the world. It is to this end that I have decided to make TRAVEL my life's over-arching purpose. Trips to the moon and Mars may be worthwhile goals for some intrepid adventure types, but my attitude is much more down-to-earth (pardon the pun): this is the only planet I will ever get the chance to see in the entire Universe, so I aim to see it. This means spending the next year or two getting ready financially and then spending the rest of my life working as an Electrician (how I earn a paycheck) punctuated by bursts of travel. Down the road if the desire to start a family ever creeps into my mind the only stipulation is that it be "portable" - like a travel mug. I once had a fever dream brought about by some spicy Indian food several years ago. In the vision I was the father of a happy child and I awoke with that strange feeling that one sometimes gets upon waking from a dream in which one wins large sums of money or something similarly splendid with the feeling that I wished it weren't a dream, but a reality. But, as I have said: that is for a later time. Not now.
Aside from travel, my interests are broad and stem from a extremely healthy dose of genuine curiosity about the neighborhood, the city, the province, the country, the continent and the world. I am happy exploring my street just as much as I am happy (one day) navigating the underbelly (or topbelly) of some far locale. I love world history. I love history, I say!
I play the guitar (I consider myself to be an excellent, shitty guitar player). I have been passionate about music and film since the days of CityTVs 'Late, Great Movies' and cassette tapes. I used to make a mean mix tape in those heady, pre-Internet times. Just ask my friends. Speaking of which:
I consider myself to have wonderful and genuine friends who have been close to me for many years as we navigate the various stages of our lives. It's not about quantity...it's about quality etc.
I've been told over the years that I have a great sense of humour (which I can switch on and off at the appropriate time - nothing worse that someone who can't) and aside from the hoity-toity manner in which I am composing this tract re: my personal qualities, this is not actually how I talk. I talk more like a salty sailor on shore leave (I am a construction worker, after all - but I am in the Union, so that adds a touch of class).
So the desire to travel, an insatiable curiosity about the present world and its shared past, a love of film and music and humour are all just some of my strong suits. I also consider myself to be working slowly and surely toward the goal of having that all-important quality which all the sages claim to be paramount: balance in one's life. It's been a slow process, but the reports I am getting from the front lines are encouraging.
Maybe you'd like to have that cup of coffee after all?
