As with others, I too have my favorite authors,
musicians, films, and heroes.



 Writers who have influenced me.


 Music and musicians, who made music for my ears


Blessed are the    film makers,
for without them, we would not "see the light" on the silver screen


The   heroes in my life

The Redwood forest is great, but....
If you are unable to stand at the foot of a redwood
tree as I have, the next best thing you can do, is take
a walk through the woods, around a lake, then sit down
at a park bench and share some hot chocolate and buns
with a good friend. Wouldn't you agree?
    Look at this, and you will see what I mean.
