About Me


To enjoy each day and appreciate everything I can.


I'm mostly easy going and accepting, interested in lots of things, especially people and what interests them. Pretty flexible, but not very tolerant of lack of consideration for others, like tardiness. Comfortable in fancy restaurants, but more so eating on the street.

I split my time between the US (Michigan)and Thailand (Chiangmai), about half time in each.


Have a good time, respect others, and eat well. :-)


Food, both cooking and eating, is my passion. I try to eat healthily, but well. I prefer Asian foods, especially Chinese and Thai.

I'm a potter, and I love all the arts. No musical ability other than listening. I like film too, but not Hollywood.

I enjoy learning and learning about languages. I have a smattering of Turkish, Cantonese, Spanish, and used to speak French til I studied Thai and pushed it way back somewhere in my head.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read lots of novels, then get tired of that and read non-fiction, then back to novels. Short stories too. I like books and films that leave you thinking. Cannot do horror or "action". Dislike violent films too.

I like lots of music, but favor classical and jazz.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I recently taught a class of hill tribe college students. They had no English, my Thai is limited. We helped each other, they learned, and we all had a wonderful time.
