Introduction Freelance consultant and speaker (more than 20 years), writer, musician, New Thought minister, controversial, a bit radical, free thinker, vegetarian, cat lover, reader (loves Powell's Books in Portland), traveled a bit, lived in Canada, stationed in Louisiana and Germany, spent 10 years in Colorado before spending the last 22 years in Oregon, loves tomatoes, flourless breads, coffee, teas of many kinds, has great friends, has lost many friends to many conditions including alcohol and drugs, cancer, AIDS, and old age. No kids but loves kids. Married once; involved, well, many times. Mostly free from racism, sexism, homophobia, but not perfect in anything. Still growing, maturing, and laughing a lot. A former barber, office worker, caregiver (spent 15 years with one patient. Nearly the best gig of entire life), and a former drunk and heavy smoker (quit both 22 years ago). Also an ex-holy roller. Did my best drinking, smoking, drugs, promiscuity, lying, crying, and fearing while a holy roller. My spiritual path has changed dramatically since leaving fundamentalist religion. Glad to be free, indeed.
