I'm a retired contributing editor of a weekly newspaper. I have visited about 40 countries, most of them before I married. I now live in an idyllic village on the central coast of California where the weather is ideal.
I hike along the cliffs above the ocean. I also hike in magnificent "Big Sur". I practice Yoga & T'ai Chi . I dance "ecstatic dance" free expression.
I am a bookworm , & have been since the age of 5 when I got my first library card in Oz.
I love music. I was raised on Classical, opera & jazz. I also enjoy popular music & ethnic music. I adore Brazilian jazz.
I'm fluent in Italian.
