General About Me
A 5 star introvert who loves to read. Writing comes easy, small talk, not so much. I love to read. My literary pursuits include both poetry and prose. I have always loved travel, starting with 18 months in Ethiopia during a 3 year stint with the Army Security Agency. My favorite places: Benares, India, Kathmandu, Nepal, and Amsterdam. I married the love of my life, a Swede eighteen years ago. She lived 15 years with me in the States where she opened a psychotherapy practice and I was teaching at an inner city high school in Seattle. I have a BFA in conceptual design, a BS in psychology and, and an MS in education. Before my teaching career I spent 20 years as an electrical design consultant in San Francisco. We moved to Sweden when after we retired. A 5 star introvert who loves to read. Writing comes easy, small talk, not so much. I love to read. My literary pursuits include both poetry and prose.

Bruce, Jo usually deals with Shelfari. Send details of the book to her and she will post it when she's home - soon I think.

I am trying to list my book on Shelfari, but cannot see how to make it work.

You can't reply directly to individual comments on your profile, Bruce. You can do it generally via this shout box and mention everyone by name in the one post (if you really want to). Or you can send individual emails to members onsite by going to 'Inbox' right at the top on the right. But that might take a long time. I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it.

I'm trying to respond to all your comments, but cannot see how.

Welcome from me too, Bruce. I share your interest in travel, though it's been decades since I was in Benares and Kathmandu. Hope you get something out of the site. It has really helped me.

Angela here, from one of your favourite places, Amsterdam! Hope you will enjoy your time here and find it fruitful for your development as a writer.

Hi Bruce and a big Welcome! Hope you get a lot of enjoyment here as a member and later, when I am back home, I look forward to reading your work.

Welcome, Bruce. I hope you find your way around soon. It's not that bad when you are used to it

Susan,

I think you've got it right.

Hi from another new member who is also learning how the site works. I'm not sure if I should be posting this in the 'Shout Box' - but there's only one way to find out!
