Gender MALE
Occupation Technical Writer
Location Hood River, Oregon , United States
Introduction I am evolving. I had lived in southern California with my wife and kids for 25 plus years. In June, 2014 my daughter accepted a job with a university in Oregon. My wife, began to worry that she would not see her daughter too much. Luckily, (ha ha) I was laid off from my job, making me free to move wherever I wanted. Over the course of several months, and several hundred resume's and applications, I secured a job in the Portland, Oregon area. We are now close to my daughter and are able to see her more frequently. It is truly a blessing. Our continuing journey has taken us to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, in the little town of Hood River. Here on this little collection of essays and interests I try to capture life. I sometimes get political. Sorry, but I have opinions. I don't ask that you agree with them, but I have reached them after 50+ years of thought and observations.
Interests baseball, folk music, poetry, movies, reading, politics, food, history.
