|Introduction||I retired at 50 in order to spend a year in the wilderness, a year of solitude, in order to divide the first part of my existence from the last. Life is as diverse as I ever imagined. Am more interested in the connections between things than the things themselves, although some things are pretty nice in their own right. Becoming a child again is trickier than I thought. Living in the country - flyover country, happily, among singing birds and happy crickets with Lovely Rita, two dogs, and a wraparound porch. Quadraphonic peace.|
|Interests||wood, words, art, fun, photography, Nightcatchers, inventions, play, conversation, philosophy, painting, woodworking, gardening, herbs, dry humor, writing, becoming a child again, anything that stimulates the mind or produces a learning curve.|
|Favorite Movies||Number one is still Dr. Zhivago. Altered States hangs in my memory. Most movies are either brain rot or artificial stimulants. I do like popcorn, though.|
|Favorite Music||The sound of wind through tree leaves, the sound of a dog's tail wagging, Peggy Lee, John Lee Hooker, Leon Redbone, deep flutes, Devo Campbell. I'd like to find more on the Devo Campbell group.|
