I am artistically inclined, in fact the property is my "canvas" -- I am very dedicated to to living with respect for nature and admiration of brilliance wherever I see it. I am a singer and have worked with a jazz trio around Santa Cruz. I love dogs for their amazing qualities they've developed through eons of living close to humankind. I am married to Dale, and we have raised 3 children. Our staff has a book-read together, just finished The Great Gatsby, now beginning The Crying of Lot 49 (Pynchon) -- we talk and analyze what we are reading throughout the day as we go about our chores. I get a kick out of the cool people having a good time at our place, interested in such a variety of things, coming together serendipitously at Redwood Croft. Of course, quiet retreats are invited, too. This could be my motto: "Stay open; Stay responsible."
