Hello, and welcome to my profile!

[First, let me say that the face photo was taken two years ago.]

[Second, let me say that I never give money to someone I have not personally met.]

I'm a retired college English teacher, poet and artist. My poetry I work seriously at, but my art -- drawing male nudes from life -- I do as a hobby.

I am gay, and tend to feel more at ease with men than with women.

Among my interests are literature, art, Buddhism, practical philosophy (discovering and sharing techniques and ideas for dealing with the challenges of Life).

I would like to find folks who are interested in serious matters: why we suffer, what we can do about it, whether Life has meaning, what does it mean to love, how can we deal with our own individualities.


Here is one of my poems; its subject is Nature:

Lie On Your Stomach On The Grass

The solid earth has never yet complained.
There is only the slight scrape
Of the accommodating grass
Adjusting around your body its bent blades.

Impossible ever to get close enough!

And there are jungles to explore:
Part the grass with fingertips
To follow the travels of ants
And expeditions of other insects through the weeds.

Establish your chin.

On your forearm
A light-green mite
Is blown when you breathe
From its perch, a sunlit hair.

Interests: Friendship, Games
