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.
