I am presently retired and living in Kentucky. I also spend some time in California where my children are, and points inbetween. I enjoy reading about many forms of philosophy and am looking forward to reading the posts of the members here on Beliefnet. I very much enjoy the beliefs of Science of Mind, Unity, Unitarianism, Paganism, Buddahism, Vedantaism, and Taoism. I respect all faiths, support individual freedom, and strongly believe in the philosophy of respect for all beings. I try to follow the philosophy of "first, do no harm" and after that I try to ease the pain of being human.
