WHO AM I?

Wedding Day, August 9, 2014

The most grateful Octogenerain I know

Risk-taking explorer

Continually growing and learning

Maintain an open heart and mind

Father of 4 loving adults and grandpa to 10 grands, ages 14 to 33

Still teachable

Old enough to remember Hitler’s voice on radio

Practice meditation daily

Enjoy gardening, photography, writing, poetry and fishing           

Married to Jill, beloved soul friend, companion and co-gardener

Counselor and spiritual director

Appreciative of relationships nurtured by mutual trust and mutual benefit

Enlivened by conscious and honest folk who speak their truth

Grateful to our Dream Maker for night visions
