About Me...

For many years people have come to my cabin on Sonoma Creek to talk with me, here in the Valley of the Moon. Now the cabin has become unsafe in the erosion of time, and I’m having to relocate elsewhere in Glen Ellen. Over the years I have become accustomed to the transitions that life brings, and soon I will be moving to another comfortable place in which to meet with people.

My deepening interest in Glen Ellen and the people who have lived here has involved me in the activities of the local historical society. I've always believed that history is not just about the past— it's about how and why we became who it is we are today, the ballast that steadies our travel into an ever evolving future.

I have four children and seven grandchildren, and have been happily married to Maria for over forty years now— half my lifetime. Out of compassion for me she has skillfully redesigned this website, which you are invited to explore. Please return whenever you like, since— like myself— my website will certainly change over time.
