Everything in the universe interests me. My in-depth interests have changed over the years: music ( homemade and otherwise) , pre-power woodworking, living off the grid and familiarizing myself with the plants around me. The last couple of years, Pickleball has become a steady passion along with Photography. Oregon has been my home for the last 53 years and I am very fond of her motto: Alis Volat Propiis ( She flies with her own Wings). Working as a Forest (Fire) Lookout, which I very much enjoyed,  helped me find the time to pursue my interests for  28 years.
