Howard Thurman was an important influence on my life, giving me the realization that discipline is important in the spiritual life. The Book of Job repaid every attention as I slowly slowly, verse by verse, lexicon and grammar in hand translated it.  The author was a wise liberal minded religious man.  Rev Jim Lawson is one of the greats of the 20th century and I learned much from him, not least to accept nonviolence as a way of life.  InterMix Voices of Humanity Collective Communication Software is my passion.  The idea is to elect a message with massive participation thereby creating a global consciousness.  See intermix.org for more. My work with the URI Cooperation Circles introduced me to the Interfaith movement which I am convinced will be instrumental in the coming transition to a world that respects its unity as much as its diversity. As Coordinator of the LA Area Nuclear Disarmament Coalition I was privileged to make many new friends and acquaintances as we began to bring the nuclear disarmament movement back to life in LA.  Now in SF with my best girl Sandy as backup for my truly old but still active mother.
