Interests My Calling: World Peace, Local, Regional and Worldwide, Ecological Economic Redevelopment, based on the basic principles that all people are kin, all have the potential to be good and happy with a quality life, equity, (ownership and approximate equality for everybuddy), sustainability, (that resources will be available for future generations), history, universal health care and health care reform, literature, music, modern poetry as expressed through music with a strong preference for the songs of the 60's and early 70's, comparative religions... My mission is to work towards the realization of a peaceful, equitable, and sustainable planet.
Favorite Movies I am a geographer. I have walked every "neighborhood" in Eugene and maybe half of Springfield. Don't have a car but I travel to the hinterlands with friends whenever I have an opportunity. Love people. Love nature. Love clean rivers. Love old growth. Love to hike. Vegan, but would eat venison and other wild game and other animal products IF they were free range and treated humanely. I would probably eat more seafood than I do if harvests were sustainable.
Favorite Music Good music. If the song has lyrics, I prefer those that promote peace, love, understanding, and sharing. Also like Union organizing songs.
Favorite Books Way to many to list.
