I'm retired from public service, with multiple academic degrees. I'm slowing down. My main interest these days is painting. I have arthritis in my hands, and may not be able to paint the way I want much longer. I I've been a Buddhist since early Hippie days in '60's San Francisco. Raised on a remote ranch in southern Arizona, I've traveled widely, but remain in love with the desert..
As a member of WDC, my writing has improved considerably over the past 7 years. My friends in Chat sparked some interest in publishing, but that isn't likley. I have a manuscript of short stories that I intend editing in 2015-2017.
Read and enjoy.
