In 2014 I retired after 46 years in the Electrical Trade. I spent my last 15 years working on the Golden Gate Bridge. Join me in this next phase of life as I write about, and photograph, the world around me.

I wanted Yoda to be the traditional kind of character you find in fairy tales and mythology. And that character is usually a frog or a wizened old man on the side of the road. The hero is going down the road and meets this poor and insignificant person. The goal or lesson is for the hero to learn to respect everybody and to pay attention to the poorest person because that’s where the key to his success will be. —George Lucas

I don’t have hobbies; hobbies cost money. Interests are quite free. —George Carlin

Either I’ve been missing something or nothing has been going on. —Karen Elizabeth Gordon

Paranoia means having all the facts.
—William S. Burroughs

That which we fear to touch is often the fabric of our salvation. —Don Delillo

It is neither necessary, or possible, to educate someone who never questions anything.
—Joseph Heller, Catch 22, 1961

I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone.
—Robin Williams
