About meRetired. A recluse. Have been, or still am: a soldier, a communications specialist, a literary magazine/book publisher, a printer, a postman, a wilderness ranger, a lover of landscapes and other beautiful things, a horticulturalist, a writer, a book collector, a book maker, a sometime artist in many genres, a drinker of fine, and some not so fine, wine.

About my libraryLiterature, with emphasis on the early-mid twentieth century. Art, Dada and Surrealist Art and Artists in particular. Japanese/Chinese Art and Literature. And a little, actually a lot, of everything else.
