I enjoy reading (mysteries, historical fiction, philosophy, literary theory, poetry, religion and myth).

I write creative nonfiction and occasional poetry. Poetry is not my strong suit.

At home, I enjoy cooking (Cajun, especially, as Louisiana is my home state).

Outdoors--hiking, exploring waterfalls, dry fly fishing, camping.

Antiques, old houses, historic places--all fun to explore.

I've spent my life as an academic, teaching at the college and graduate levels.
"I learn by going where I have to go."

I just had to scrap a convertible I loved--240 K but the engine was going.

My Jeep gets me about in the winter season in Va. And, i have a hybrid for mileage.
