Grady Loy (BenUriel)

Joined 4 years ago from Yokohama Japan




Born in Japan, I grew up in various places, mostly Arizona. I have an avid interest in both science and the mystic though little interest in parlor tricks in either calling. My chief calling is a fascination with that which is yet to be known. I suppose I need to develop my appreciation for the beauty of that which is already before me. I studied law, have a family and work at a chemicals manufacturer. As a result I have seen much of the world and want to see much more. I am of such an age that I remember when the only things one could read were printed or hand written (Well all right we did have cinema and television) I have ridden horses on roundup in one of the most stunningly beautiful places in the world, sat in the board rooms (not as a board member) of some of the worlds largest and most fascinating corporations, worked a double and a half over time shift weilding a steel rod to knock over cones of clinker (molten cement on the way to the cooler), contemplated the transience of existence at the Temple of the Dragon at Peace in Kyoto, dined to the strains of Mozart performed live in Strasburg, climbed the great wall (a little of it) in China, seen (under the most peaceful of conditions) a little of what remains of the jungles of Vietnam and Thailand and bartered for gold bracelets at a souk in the Persian Gulf, planned and carried out chemical syntheses, very briefly steered an airplane and even more briefly piloted a small sailing craft. Of course there is the other 99% of life that while I do not complain about it, it is either more mundane or perhaps is not what one would tell or others want to listen to but what would be the point of telling that.
