Love to write. It's just been years since I've done it with regularity, and thus I am thrilled to be back here at Writing.com! I need a creative outlet to balance the logical teaching I do in math (algebra thru college calculus), physics and SAT prep. I live in the Short Pump area of Richmond, Virginia. I play Words with Friends, study and play chess, read and write. And sometimes do digital art on my iPad. My reading interests are general short stories, sciFi / Fantasy and info related to spiritual growth / conscious awareness. This reading and interest obviously influences what I prefer to write about. And...Life is good!
