I'm a Pacific Northwest editor, writer and author. I was born in Canada, raised in California and now live in Seattle, Washington.

I'm pretty typical of my city and my region.  I grew up with nature, the water and a love of knowledge and these traits characterize me today.

I'm considered open-minded within boundaries and generous as long as it's not presumed upon. I enjoy good conversation and in a battle of wits, I can take as good as I can give. Smiling. 

I've been a journalist most of my life, with time off for honest work at Boeing, fighting forest fires, pulling green chain in a lumber mill and working grapes and hops.  I am also a two-tour Navy combat vet.

I enjoy meeting people on here and sometimes from here to in person.

minstrel312: This is what happens if you not only talk to plants but listen to them as well. Fred and Wilma here started out three years ago and have thrived for the last year or so in totally artificial light. So if you talk to your plants, excellent. Just watch what you say to them. They get big enough and they get mad at you, you must might turn up missing a family pet. Voice of experience. So meet Fred & Wilma.

minstrel312: Playing For Change is a concept whose time has come. This one will lead you to others. It is 75 Cubans around the world performing Guantanamera. It sounds as though they are all on the same stage.
