About Me


The kids are grown and gone; now for my life, again


Always a surprise, and seem much younger than my chronological age.


William James, in Pragmatism, taught us that the only important philosophical questions are those for which there is a practical difference in the answer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Paris, New York, New Hampshire, and many more to come ...


I play old time banjo, and sing. and I still dance contact improvisation at Couch surfing is helping me explore the world!

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite movie is by Richard Linklater, "Waking Life" and favorite book is Jonathan Haidt's "The Righteous Mind".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sunrise over the Caribbean, sunset over the Santa Monica mountains. Oh yes, and then there was Martin Luther King's speech at the Washington Monument, and the cabin I built in the middle of San Francisco, and the process of growing up with my children ... well, I guess that is more than one, but then, it seems I have had more than one lifetime.
