Marina and I [we've been hanging out together for 51 years] live in Berkeley, with a pied a terre inPortland, Oregon [where our twin daughters and their families live]. We write books--about 35 to date for major publishers: cooking, computers, effective complaining, on-line degrees, meditation, other stuff that interests us. We have taught at the college level (Berkeley City College, U of Iowa, Vanderbilt--ethics and world religions for Marina, journalism and marketing for John. We have put on circle dance workshops for 25 years [see (website hidden)]. Recent travel: In 2014, Bhutan, India and Dubai. 2012, Scotland and Spain (where we stayed in Airbnb accommodations); previously, Tibet [Mt. Kailas], Tuva, Lake Baikal, Galapagos. Forthcoming travel: Rapid City SD to visit Wild Idea Buffalo Ranch; Vancouver BC for a Tibetan Buddhist teaching. Generally well-behaved, with occasional lapses (such as the time when we lived in Mendocino, and the county banned street artists, or anyone, from selling things on the street, and I managed to get arrested for selling copies of the Bill of Rights for a nickel. The judge found the law unconstitutional.)
