I love to read and write, and I have a passion for expressing myself and sharing my creativity with others, thus the creation of this blog. A New Englander at heart and holding a deep love for Maine and French Canada, I often miss my friends and family from home and try to venture back often. From Connecticut and Vermont to Maine, I miss the forests and oceans of the North East. Just the same I enjoy living in the Sonoran desert to which I fled in an attempt to open a new chapter in my life. I found the desert to be an ideal place in many ways to heal a broken heart after a rather tumultuous end to a relationship.
When I travel to different cities, states and countries I love to visit old churches and gardens and sample local cuisine. I like to visit quiet sanctuaries where tourists don’t go. I enjoy talking with the locals in the shops and cafés. After a long day, being surrounded by people at the school where I teach, I enjoy the tranquility of home. I enjoy various ethnic foods, wine tastings, micro-breweries, and intimate dinner parties with friends. I love nature, hiking and camping, art, music poetry and so much more. I am still a true romantic at heart, and am a spiritual, easygoing, educated and sensitive guy.
