Da real bio is in da books! But here goes: Animal and nature lover, author, journalist, photographer, yogi, actor, traveler, lifelong environmentalist, and hardcore advocate for simple living, waste management, and non-greed.
Boomer, good health, ambitious, now striving to get younger (steep odds). HAPPY AND CONTENT.
Veggie juicer, non meat-eater, food-combiner since 1974. Lives in Hawai'i, self-made, financially independent (should write a book about that).
Over 100 published newspaper articles, 5 published books so far, including poetry, out May 2020. (And "Nicaragua Story," coming late 2020.)
Acted in film and television (and stage). Film/TV wasn't what I thought it would be, but awesome experience—glad I did it and glad I stopped. There's no one website I've found with all my credits, but culling sites you can find most. Biggest movies were "Caught on a Train," BBC made-for-television film that won a bunch of awards; and "Shock Treatment," sequel of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." You can watch both on YouTube for free, I think.
Did a bunch of modeling in NY, Paris, and LA—but not my calling. And let's not forget 20 years doing bodywork.
Been around a while…plus I started young, but I've covered all this ground by not having kids, never permanently hitching up, always working hard, and staying true to myself.
Lately been taking LONG road- trips in the American West. Alaska's next. Photo on home page is from Glacier Nat'l Park in NW Montana. Most beautiful place EVER.
The future? Cranking out more books. Enjoying my yoga practice of nearly 50 years; swimming in the Pacific; growing and selling lemons, grapefruits and mangos! Counting blessings while immersing in my land, plants, animals, Hawaiian intoxification, and guardian spirits. And honing forgiveness and creative peace-making...(suggestions welcome). Also battening down the financial hatches to grow older "with grace and dignity," as Dad would say.
In the crystal ball? Making a difference in some tiny way? Not my style to spill the beans, but I believe the best is yet to come. (Old age and philanthropy have a nice ring.)
Right now my destiny is publishing books. No, they're not the Great American Novels one imagined writing at age 20.... No, I don't have huge control over how my literary contribution will ultimately add up — I'm just doing what I gots to do. Book values will be determined by readers. (But they ARE great books, with dozens of 5-star reviews on Amazon and plenty more to come, maybe from you.)
