I’m a country boy who was moved to the city. While I love the city for its cultural and social amenities, my heart lives in the country where nights can be dark, except for the stars and moon and quiet, except for the frogs, birds and crickets.
I am a student, teacher, and lover
2. I am giving talks and writing about line-family (or line-marriage if you are into Heinlein). A line-family is a family that does not end. As the family members age and die, new younger members are added. Family businesses, property and investments are never dissapated by wills. This is how rich, powerful families like the Bushes and Mullenburghs stay rich and powerful.
Check it out at www.line-family.info.
3. Talking to anyone who is willing about poly families of any sort.
Movies: I just discovered “Bandits” with Bruce Willis, Cate Blanchett & Billy Bob Thornton – very funny with a couple of good twists.
Music: Beatles, Cranberries, most Motown, Beethoven, Antonin Dvořák, Willie Nelson…
Food: Sun warmed ripe peach pulled off the tree. Sweet corn straight from the garden to the kitchen. Late-harvest Riesling or Eiswein (ice wine). Salmon and Semillon; dark chocolate and any robust red wine (merlot or cabernet).
Family & friends.
A sense of purpose.
...you have a good paying job in the field of energy conservation you would like to offer me.
...you are interested in having me (and possibly my coauthor) give a presentation about line families to your group.
...if you are part of a line-family or would like to know what a line-family is.
...only if you want to. That is more important than all the "shoulds" above.
