I am a teacher, counselor, environmentalist, and supporter of those who, like myself, are engaged in life's 'third act' as both explorers and guides. I have lived in four countries, visited a number of others, and enjoy the sharing of cultures, traditions, and insights that make our global village a very rich and precious community. I love reading, movies, outdoor activities like hiking and skiing, and sharing conversation along with a good meal.
