Describe yourself what is your worst and best quality?
One of my best qualities is to persevere…not give up…when an obstacle gets in my way, I push, hard to get through it. My worst quality? I guess that would be my anger. I sometimes can’t control it. I’m known to have a temper.
What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?
I say what I mean and I mean what I say. I sometimes intimidate people. I’m not that scary. (smiles) I’m just honest.
What is your biggest secret something no one knows about?
Everyone who knows me, knows I’m all about Earth. I love to explore it. Immerse myself in it. Run my hands through it, over it and along it. Grasp it. Be moved by its majesty as it envelops me. Secretly, I’m jealous of my star dancing lover. I’d love to see what she sees when she roams the cosmos. I’m an avid adventurer…no reason my adventures can’t take me into outer space. Don’t tell her I said this, though.
What are you most afraid of?
I’m afraid it blowing it with Chérie - seriously blowing it by becoming a jack-ass which I’ve been known to do from time to time. I told you - I’m a hot head, I have a wicked temper and it sometimes gets its way with me. Wait - I don’t want you to think I’d ever lay a hand on her! I wouldn’t. I will never harm a woman, ever. But still. I get pretty pumped when I’m pissed.
What do you want more than anything?
To be a righteous, stand up man. To be a better man than my father ever was, the asshole. To be the kind of man that Chérie’s proud of.
What is your relationship status?
Rock solid commitment to Chérie.
How would you describe your sense of fashion?
(laughs) Shit. What kind of a question is that? I get up, I get dressed. Pull on a pair of Levis and a t-shirt. Flannel shirt if it’s cold. Leather jacket if it’s even colder. Does that answer your question? I’m an outdoorsy kind of guy, not a fashion statement. (shakes head)
How much of a rebel are you?
Where do you come up with these questions? Am I a rebel? Do you want to know if I rebel against injustices and things that I consider wrong? Hell, yeah, I do. This world can be a fucked up place, excuse my French. I do my best to right wrongs.
What do you considered to be your greatest achievement?
Accepting Chérie when she started changing. No question. Man, did she change. (laughs) Let’s move on. No need to pursue this line of thinking.
What is your idea of happiness?
Chérie and I exploring the world. Adventuring. Chérie and I exploring each other, if you catch my drift. Now that’s happiness.
What is your current state of mind?
In this moment? Present. Alive and well.
What is your most treasured possession?
Well, I’d say Chérie but she’d deck me, saying, ‘you don’t own me Cam Tyson’. (smiles) But it’s Chérie.
What is your most marked characteristic?
(cocks his head and studies me, as if gauging my response to what he’s about to say) Let’s just say it’s the presence of a star dreamling and leave it at that.
What is it that you, most dislike?
People’s bullshit. Dishonesty. Lying, scheming manipulation.
Which living person do you, most despise?
Without a doubt, it’s Jill Primcott.
What is your greatest regret?
(Looks away. Crosses arms tightly over his chest. Clenches his jaw.) It’s that I never said good-bye to my mom before she died. I just got the hell out of my house and never looked back.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
In a man? Hell, I don’t know. I guess if he’s honest. Straight with me. A no bullshit kind of guy.
What is the quality you most like in a woman?
(gives a secret smile) Sexual openness. (laughs) That’s probably not PC enough for you, am I right? I love a woman’s…mind. Especially when she’s thinking about being sexually open with me. (laughs again)
Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
Hell, I don’t know. (scratches head) Oh. Here’s one from a book I had to read back in high school - To Kill a Mockingbird. I like Atticus Finch. What’s that quote? I memorized it way back in the day. Oh yeah. “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” Love that quote. I try to live that way.
Which living person do you most admire?
Chérie. (smiles) And my mentor, James. Now there’s a stand-up guy. He teaches me to be a better person.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I don’t know, I guess it would be mastering my rage.
What is your motto?
One day at a time. Stay present. Live life to the fullest.
