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.

Shout Box

Welcome, Bruce. I hope you'll enjoy being a member of WA. I think Lesley will be helping you find your way around but just shout if you have any problems. I am also married to a Swede! He hasn't lived in Sweden for more than 40 years, but has children and grandchildren there from his previous marriage. We were in Sweden in June for a family do.
