Born on a cold winter’s eve in Pennsylvania.
Raised in New York.
Passed seasons in Washington, DC, Santa Cruz, CA, and Annapolis, MD.
I now gratefully reside just northwest of Nashville, TN.
The seasons here are not much different than the one’s I remember from my childhood, except that the snows are few and light, and Cheatham county has barns which send the smell of tobacco smoking across the county in the fall.
My children and I, when we can, pass our time taking walks, collecting dried plants, using magnifying glasses, watching movies, playing chess and checkers, marbles, and telling stories.
New College Franklin, a Christian liberal arts college has, to my gratitude, employed me as an professor for the last nine years.
In the afternoons, I work part time at a UPS warehouse sorting and loading packages.
When I am not working or with my children, I pass the time in a wood shop in the garage.
