I really enjoy the outdoors, and exercise just about every day, usually by walking or hiking, sometimes by bicycling. I belong to a gym, and have gone from time to time, but I’m no gym-rat, because I would rather be outside in the sunshine enjoying nature’s beauty. Now that I have more time for fun, I am teaching myself how to draw, thinking about learning to play a musical instrument, taking a yoga class, and plan on spending more time writing. In the past I have written poetry and started a futuristic sci-fi novel, and want to get back to some projects and also start some new ones.
I’m not a sports fan, so if you love Charger or Padres games, or sports bars, then I am not your guy. I do read a lot, history, historical fiction, other good fiction, classics, good books recommended by others. I love live theater and also, of course, dining out, and enjoy many different kinds of food. I also care about politics, and follow the news pretty intensely.
I am educated in the helping professions and have worked over the years in many different ways helping people and managing or running organizations involved in making people’s lives better. I’m a licensed psychotherapist and continue to think of myself in that way.
5 years. I'm trained and licensed as a psychotherapist and was working at a mental health clinic until I retired recently.
