    The distant goal of my life is to create an intentional retirement community where sustainable agriculture, ethnobotany, yoga, energy medicine, herbal medicine and the cultures of: poetry, music, art, coffee, tea, beer, wine all thrive. I have the vocational background experience that will contribute to the ultimate success of this community. This is a goal 10 - 20 - 30 years in the making.
