I have moved from Berkeley California to Seattle Washington to be near grandkids. I am 82 years old but people say I appear to be 65. They should feel my aches in the morning. I attend classes for seniors, discussing The New Yorker and Writing Your Own Life Story. I connect with Skeptics and Atheists and I am active in political matters. I am on social media but read more than I write. I approve of democratic socialism but accept the virtues of capitalism. I am a progressive and vote Democratic usually. Altho I am an old white American I detest white nationalism. I am a birder and a conservationist. Diplomats, whistleblowers, and honest news reporters are the most important people in the world community.
