I value bliss in everyday life. Love to have intimate philosophical and intellectual discussions by the fire or under the stars. Working on a book about spontaneity. Food and wine gourmet. Grow rose garden and hike daily. Adore my 19 yo son and his Australian shepherd blue eyes puppy. Looking forward to making a change in other people’s lives!
