Why subscribe

Subscribe because I live in the mountains with more trees than people, and I need you talk with. I throw out my thoughts about once a week. Along with a focus on healthy aging, I touch on human nature, observations on the state of our small world, and advice from folks a lot smarter than me. My dogs, in particular, love my blog. That could have something to do with them getting treats while shut in my office.

Weekly reflections on the human condition from a flawed but extremely well-intended human.

I'm a former journalist, now an author and sculptor for Bronze. I live in the mountains amid pines and peace.
