I am a retired college English teacher, poet, and amateur artist. I am gay, interested in literature (especially poetry), art, classical music, Buddhism, and philosophy.

Hinduism and Buddhism appeal to me. Their ideas are similar to what we now call 'cognitive therapy: using our mind and heart to question our thoughts and actions. When we do that, our perspective can change. We can feel more equipped for Life. We can feel connected to others and perhaps to a higher power.

If this resonates with you, feel free to contact me. Please tell me about yourself and be sure to tell me what you would like to share and discuss.

A word of warning: I want to hear about specific current experiences you are having. I want to hear about specific ideas which are in your mind at this time. I do not want to hear about what kind of food you like to eat or what kind of music you like to hear or what you think about democracy or freedom or Truth. I want concretions: what is on your plate at the moment and how you are dealing with it.

In other words, I'm not interest in what is called 'idle chit-chat.'
[Chit-chat is defined as 'informal talk about things that are not very important.']

If your first email to me is casual and vague, I will not reply to it.
I don't have the patience for messages like 'How is your day going?' or 'I want to know more about your country' or 'I want to be your friend.'
