I published two books this past year, one about great saints and

many). I do lots of volunteering, especially at the Ananda
community in SW Portland. I enjoy time with friends. No t.v, but

meditation, family, good food, friends, humor, optimism
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
love, goodness, fun, friends, making a positive difference, funny
and interesting stories.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
