School Story:

One day I was walking on the lawn in front of Parrish and saw Dick Stone circling one of the large oaks. I asked him why, and he explained that by walking in a circle, when he got tired he wouldn't have to return anywhere. I thought this was eminently sensible, and still do, though in my own life I have found that, as James Joyce noted, the longest way around is often the shortest way home, and have ended up happily back in my home town, New York City.


I have spent virtually all of my working life as a writer and editor at non-profits, in areas such as civil rights, the anti-Vietnam War movement, amnesty for war resisters, health care, Nicaragua support and adult literacy. I would be happy to provide a (different) response to each person who asks me for a longer version.

Embellish on your current job, avocation and/or volunteer work during the past half-century of your life.

I edit doctoral dissertations and other academic papers, primarily relating to children with disabilities and adults confronting obesity challenges and other psychological issues.
