Here’s a little update to my webpage, thought I would put this at the beginning just in case somebody does read it. If you understand personality tests then you will know who or what I am when I say that I am an INFJ 1w2. I have added a new section for this so please bear with me as I work on it.
Well here I am 65 and living in the beautiful town of Saranda, Albania! I currrently live alone in an apartment that gives me a lovely view of Saranda, it’s bay and the hillsides situated on the coastline of Corfu.
It’s been a long journey to get here but I am still standing!
I was last in Ocean Shores, Washington in a house one block away from the beach but the universe had other plans for me.
I had retired a few years ago from the Oregon Department of Corrections. My last 14 years in the workforce were spent as a computer analyst writing programs here and there along with a lot of other odd jobs.
I wound up there after trying my hand at a 120 acre ranch I had in the middle of nowhere Arizona. Pretty successful raising goats, chickens, pigs and a couple of cattle but that was not meant to be my final resting place, so I moved to Oregon.
My previous 20 years were mostly spent in the Los Angeles area heading up various computer departments at manufacturing, malls and mortgage comanies. I spent a lot of time climbing the corporate ladder sometimes making two hour commutes, each way, then spending 8 to 10 hours working. Needless to say I didn’t spend much time at home building a family life but we had a lot of perks with the money that I was making.
I started in the computer industry in the very early days, I taught myself basic language on a black and white tv, a cassett recorder to write the programs on a base TRS 80, couldn’t afford the whole system.
One day while I was driving a taxi in Orlando, I caught glimpse of this place called Data Processing Institute on highway 436. I stopped in there and the rest was history. There I broke into the computer industry on an IBM Mainframe, yeah-hoo punch cards and tapes.
A lot more of life happened before then but I’m not going to bore you with all the details.
I’ve spent the last 40 years studying most of the philosophers from Socrates to Ralph Waldo Trine. Along with the philosophy I also studied the various religions from Buddhism to Religious Science. I have read many Esoteric books on Heremtic teachings and Theosophy.
Ever since I was a kid I was always fascinated by the cosmos, I filled my days with Caral Sagan’s books and scifi novels. I still try to stay up with the latest findings out in the universe from the smallest, string theories to the multi verses.
I’ve had a veried past and with that comes it’s own ups and downs which I have had to deal with on a personal level. Just like the rest of you I have lifes’ battle scars to deal with. None of us are immune from the worlds problems which in the end should draw us closer and not seperate us.
Here I will point you to a couple of books I have written, didn’t do to well, but lessons were learned along the way. Various diverse teachings throughout time just a few now but many more to follow. Many of the things I would like to post are still in the public domain so I will only be able to point you it those directions you will have to decide if you wish to follow.
Take care everyone thanks for reading this far,
