I am a retired college English teacher, poet and amateur artist. I am gay.

I'm interested in literature (especially poetry), art, classical music, popular music of the '50s, Buddhism, Scrabble, and philosophy.

Mostly, I'm looking to exchange emails with people who have a desire to discuss problems so as to find solutions.

I think most of us have moments when we are faced with something we do not know how to deal with. At such a time, we can find it helpful to hear what another person did when faced with that or a similar problem.

It could be a practical problem, but it also could be a philosophical question. There are many ways of thinking about things, and sometimes being exposed to a new way is what we need. Then we can see options and can get un-stuck.

I like these words by Theodore Isaac Rubin: 'The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.'

[Please note: if I think you and I would not be a good match I will not reply, though in my heart I will certainly wish you well.]
