Introduction I have adopted two boys from Haiti. Both are mentally handicapped. One is is now 20, the other 18. I divorced my wife of 28 years a few years ago and have just remarried, a woman from Belize. I find beauty in many things... many, many things (nature, art, people, space...) and that helps me to survive my deep empathy for so many who suffer. I like to write, and I've written quite a bit on my blogs. I have been thinking about writing a book. Unsure if it should be about the things I have experienced, or fiction (I have an interesting plot line worked out). I'm pretty open about things. I like blended whiskey, but I never have more than two drinks... usually just one, and not often at that. I have had many adventures. Makes me a little different. (Odd?)
Interests Faith, technology, science, literature, geography, my kids, gardening, art, music, blogging...

Favorite Music Keeps growing! I like rock, older pop, jazz, blues, classical, some country...

That includes: Indonesian, Mbuti Pygmies, Australian aboriginal music, Bach...
