I've been a student, a war resister, a farmer. I've started several businesses; bought and sold real estate and antiques.
I've worked for the U.S. Department of Commerce and local chambers of commerce to help rural Oregon communities create new sources of jobs.
I've promoted outdoor sports and started an ecotourism business to expose city-dwellers to Oregon's oldgrowth forests.
I've traveled around the USA, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.
Now I'm finally getting around to doing what I said I wanted to do when I left college to see what life was really about, writing.
Staying in shape and being active has always been a goal of mine. Being introduced to vegetarian organic living in 1969 was a lifesaver for me.
A better way of living is possible, as you all know. It's more important than ever that we convince more of the world's people that a peaceful, cooperative, simpler lifestyle is the answer to most of their problems -- not more striving and fighting.
