I live on the Olympic Peninsula, home to three incredible Rainforests. I enjoy hiking and camping. I used to sing in Southern California in the 60's, but I came up here in the 70's and I really cannot see myself living in the city anymore. I like to take along a notebook along with me when I am hiking and write, poetry or other thoughts about the enviornment. The forest is an amazing place, it is peaceful and wonderful all at the same time. I live in a community called Quilcene. The definition of Quilcene, means "Place of Tranquility" I am looking forward to meeting someone who would like to share that tranquility and who also shares my love of the wild and diverse forests of the Olympic Peninsula.
World Hello Day is a secular holiday observed
annually on November 21, to express that conflicts should be resolved through communication rather than the use of force. Participants verbally greet ten people or more on that day as an expression of the importance of personal communication
in preserving peace. The annual global event began to be celebrated in 1973 as a response to the Yom Kippur War.
