Born in 1944, a year before the Second World War came to an end, my life has been full of changes, some enormous, some small, but nevertheless, good or bad, the word that expresses it best is wonderment. I am constantly amazed at the twists and turns in my life which led me to be who I am today. I love to write, I am an optimist although I face reality head-on, and my interest lies in people and the way they relate both to themselves and others. I am fascinated by the idea of a spiritual life and the mysteries of life and philosophy. I appreciate the company of other like-minded individuals and hope to meet you in my travels.
