I am a not quite retired internist with a love for people, poetry, woods, wilderness, wolves, hiking, my two yellow labs, music, movies, Tai Chi, meditation, and anything that touches or opens the heart. I have been with the mythopoetic mens movement for many years. I love teaching stories, healing rituals, singing with other men, dancing to the communal drums, and sharing poetry. I welcome the mystery of becoming, of being continually reborn. And despite a lifetime of trying to do good and become a better person, I am beginning to accept, and not without some amusement, the total hopelessness of trying to be anyone but myself. And, to be truthful, I still want to become the person my dogs think I am. I am often intuitive, transparent, affectionate, passionate, funny, and playful, sometimes charming, sometimes shy, sometimes silent. At this season of my life, love is everything.
