Why is an ” About Me ” page so hard to write ? I am beginning a new chapter. I have reached the end of a thirty year postal career and I have embarked on a new adventure. I’m in my early 60’s and I live with my wife, one cat and Yoda- dog in the great Pacific Northwest. I love exploring the natural world on foot, by rails or car. Sometimes, this beautiful creature below joins me. I also make art. It occurs to me almost daily how connected the two are. Creativity is the thread that has made up this tapestry that is my life. I hope you will find a little joy in sharing my travels and my passion. Please follow along as I begin this new chapter. Not as “postal worker” but as artist, writer, creator !
