I’m probably old enough to be your father, have two fine grown-up sons, two grandchildren and a daughter with a different mom that I barely know but am very proud of. She's working in Bolivia trying to facilitate young girls a leg up. I was in Viet Nam. I’m not a republican but my father was, I’m not a fan of coal-fired plants or nuclear (noo clee er you idiot), think we ought to have a gentler hand on the planet. I mainly make a living designing and building one-of-a-kind furniture in my shop up in the woods in the mountains of northern New Mexico on commission (I'll get some pictures up when I figure that out), for 30 years. I still get better. Retirement is not likely. I like travel, most of that has been in Latin America, lots to Peru, lots to Mexico. I am a fan, imbiber and advocate of banisteriopsis caapi when it's cooked up with psychotria viridis. I like to write, read, sit in lotus, I’m not a Buddhist but that’s probably the closest. I stay fit. I don’t have a lot of confidence in our “leaders” and the state of world looks pretty dicey, but in my little corner, up here in the trees, life is good. You?
