I'm a retired engineer and amateur musician who loves to travel, cook, learn languages and share my interests with people I meet. My favorite times are joining in activities that involve others but I unwind with a good book and an occasional movie. I live in a large house near a university so I rent some of the rooms to graduate students. I enjoy being among young people who are interested in many different fields of study.
Although my political views are "liberal", I respect other points of view provided that they do not encourage harm.
In general, my philosophy of life tends to follow zen guidelines.
