"Not only witty in himself but the cause of wit in others"-
OK, it's an aspiration.
Love games (chess, bridge, board and card games of all kinds, bar games too), puzzles and acrostics. Love to learn languages but perhaps I will just work to improve the ones I already know. I read a lot of course. Hate getting ready to travel but love it when I actually arrive. Favorite destination: Europe. My profession requires going there often. Play tennis (temporarily sidelined with minor shoulder injury). Once and future sailor.
Living and working currently in beautiful Chico, California, the "Paris of Butte County," but would relocate for the right relationship. I need only be on campus for as little as two days in the week so could commute from as far away as San Francisco, and certainly from Sacramento or Davis. Many of my colleagues do this.
