I am a voracious reader with the exceptions of most Chick Lit, Romance, Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. I am a bloodlust Scrabble player.

I am a citizen of the USA interested in all other cultures, pro-LGBTQ, BLM, and animal-rights. I falteringly follow a mostly Buddhist path. My mottos are "Work a little, travel a lot" and "You can't have everything - where would you put it?"

I enjoy classic, international, and documentary film.

My reading passions are China's Cultural Revolution, brain science, green/healthful living, noetic science, Buddhism, and travel writing
particularly about Asia, Africa, The Caribbean, Australia and Antarctica. I also like the occasional first-person cozy mystery than can't be solved in the first 20 pages.
