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.

I want to discuss serious things with people who have a tendency to be serious.

I would like to interact with people who question things they were raised to believe, things they have read in books or heard.

I want to exchange emails with people who feel a bit stuck, people who sometimes feel a little despair or melancholy. Or with people who do not feel stuck, don't have much sadness but who would like to share techniques they use to live a more meaningful life.

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 to a higher power and to everything that is.

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. Then, if I think we might be a good match as pen pals, I will reply.

But please keep in mind that I am interested in spirituality more than in religion. I am not wanting to convert anyone, and I do not want anyone to try to convert me.

Also, I am not a therapist. I am not a priest. I am not a guru.
I cannot solve others' problems. I will not give advice. I can only share my experiences and some ideas I found in books.
