Bio: I am an old hippy. I have lived in Japan, and the Philippines, and today I spend as much of my time in the Rocky Mountains as I can. I dig hot springs, and sailing, and travel. I love beaches (preferably in the tropics) and mountains, and jungles, fields... English is my mother language, but I am fluent in Japanese, speak conversational Tagalog (Filipino), I can read Chinese until the grammar gets in the way, and I am learning Lakota (Sioux). I love writing haiku, but only in Japanese (I'll translate it, but English is not natural to haiku). I am not religious, but I am very spiritual---I follow an indigenous animism. I practice this with, and learn from, Lakota (Sioux) holy people. To learn more about me, click on the ABOUT tab above.
