I have recently retired from bookselling and am enjoying the privilege of finding a new rhythm of life; of feeling the joy of being "abroad in the world". I enjoy conviviality as well as solitary times of contemplation. I am a long time yoga practitioner (in the Iyengar tradition mostly), am a liberal Christian (Anglican), and a learner of Buddhist meditation. I ride a bike for commuting and recreation and love walking in and around my city of Vancouver. I enjoy good red wine and eating at home; listening to the jazz standards anywhere. I am a news junkie (politics and culture especially), and enjoy the many amenities of living in Vancouver (culture, entertainment, parks). Especially, I love being with my partner and other close friends and making "five-minute" friendships day by day.
