About

I began writing as a creative way to think out loud.  As a  single, 57 year-old man,  I am using this blog to chronicle my journey, my discoveries, and observations.

I am born and bred in New England and have lived here all my life. I currently live in southern Maine.

I love to travel, anywhere. Here in America, I’ve traveled to New York City, Seattle, Dallas,  Chicago,  Las Vegas, Arizona and the Grand Canyon.  Elsewhere, I traveled to London, Scotland (Edinburgh and St. Andrews), Paris, Amsterdam, Ottawa, Bonn and Frankfurt Germany.  I love to play golf, but don’t play often enough.  I especially like to play golf at dusk when I have the course to myself.  I have been fortunate to be able to play golf in St. Andrews, and have seen the 2005 Open Championship there.  I find great joy in my children.  My Daughter is 28 and My Son is 25.  I am blessed to have them as a part of my life.  I really do enjoy long  walks on the beach – no cliche’.  I find walking by the ocean and breathing the ocean air reconnects you with the essence of  all life.  I love to get in the car and just drive, singing along with the radio.  I like walking the streets and observing the human condition.  I bring along my camera, just in case I find something interesting.

My Powerball fantasy:  to pull up stakes and buy a crofter’s cottage in Scotland.  I want to get away from the American ratrace and find a slower, more civilized way of life.  Anywhere I can play links golf can’t be all bad.

My philosphy in two parts:  You can never have too many books or own too much music, and ….”and it’s only the giving that makes you what you are”–Ian Anderson
