I'm a happily married man 66 years old (as of July 2008) and will turn 67 in December, 2008. I've been married 42 years to my first and only spouse. We have one middle-aged daughter. I retired from teaching social studies at the secondary level after 34 years and am about to enter my 9th year teaching geography at the University of Missouri St. Louis. I'm very interested in spiritual growth and see life as an adventurous, and sometimes difficult and confusing, journey of becoming. I expect that I will always be "a work in progress."
