Greetings. I am a retired English teacher, who still teaches two classes at a local high school. I consider myself unpretentious, an avid reader, gardener and particularly love the the out-of-doors almost as much as I like meeting new people. I fell in love with Ashland because of the forests, mountain lakes and the genuine friendliness and spirited individualism of the community. I also consider myself a fairly adept cook, have an organic garden and am the happiest when I am outside just puttering, pulling weeds, watering or simply staring at the foothills from the back deck.
I am fond of music in its many forms, from opera to The Electric Light Orchestra, enjoy film especially Independent and documentaries, and as much as I try can't seem to wean myself off of Kettle chips.
Welcome to this lovely community and my home.
