About me

Gender MALE
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Retired
Location Milford, OH, United States
Introduction grew up in Huntington WV -- graduated from Huntington HS in 1965, graduated from Marshall University in 1969, graduated again in 1972; now live in the vicinity of Cincinnati Ohio in an apartment overlooking a village main street where I can occasionally smell the coffee roasting from the Coffee shop down the street. Ah yes, nice.... And to those who wondered, I meditate everyday and have now stopped shaving with a straight razor, no cuts, just too much razor burn!
Interests Tai Chi, reading, playing my fiddle, writing, cooking, knitting, making homemade wine
Favorite Movies Lots.... Changes from time to time.... Fellini, of course, (sine quo non) as well as Jim Jarmusch and los bros Coen
Favorite Music Gosh, just about everything except Rap.... Jazz, especially from the '60s, Coltrane and friends; Celtic; Opera (see Ottos's Opera House at www.1.FM)
Favorite Books too many to list, but certainly most anything by Thomas Pynchon (although I must admit I liked Mason and Dixon better than Against the Day), Umberto Eco, Joanne Harris, Jane Austen, William Faulkner and most recent: Haruki Murakami

You moved the pot before the coffee stopped brewing. Do you smell the mountains or the burro?

The burro, of course, whatta ya think I am? Anyway?
