2014 Reunion News: No input
January 2010 Update:
I returned to Lewiston after two years of college at the U of I. I went to Portland for the summer of 1968 and moved to Seattle in 1969 and have been here ever since.
I decided to take my retirement early so I basically goofed off and tried a lot of different interesting things for 20 years. Was not particularly successful at any of them but did have a lot of fun. Did stage lighting at concerts, was in a rock band, was involved with a parapsychology research group, helped with an underground paper, started a computer consulting business, worked on big events here in Seattle, got involved with some electronic artists, worked on movie scripts, dabbled in politics, etc, etc.
Then I settled down and started being more serious about working for a living around 1990. Met a wonderful lady and we have been very happy for 15 years. We rent a nice house in north Seattle with lots of gardens, a gazebo, arbor with grapevines, dogwood tree, etc.
I worked at a software company doing documentation, market research, facilities management, HR, database mining, a little programming, and anything else that needed doing for 15 year and was just laid off last November. Just getting used to being unemployed.
On weekends, I have a part time job editing a set of books on sociology. Barbara is very involved in the Democratic Party here in Seattle.
I am dealing with a few health issues, some inherited and some the result of stupid behavior when I was young and foolish. Nothing life threatening but definitely annoying sometimes.
As always, I plague myself with ultimate questions about the meaning of existence, the future of humanity, the origin of the universe, the nature of consciousness, etc, etc. This past year I read 20 books about scientific research on happiness. I have decided that maybe people ought to do things that make them happy and that in turn will make them healthier, friendlier, better citizens, parents, spouses, etc. Problem is; most people are not very good about judging what will ACTUALLY make them happy. (Myself included!)
