Leslie Kleen
I live in Columbus Ohio by myself, (still looking) having lived through a divorce and a couple brief relationships.  I spend most of my time writing music and I have been selling it on Amazon.  I also have my own website:  www.MusicFromRiverside.com
for advertising, but I rely on Amazon to sell and collect the money.

I continue to compose music (see MY MUSIC link above) and I am now working on some long term projects.  In recent years I have written a music drama, "The Starry Messenger"; a cantata, "Walden", and am now working on another cantata, "Darwin and the Enchantment of Life" .
 The 'STATEMENT' link above also expresses my philosophy and the directions that I want my music to take for the future.

I also recommend that everyone look at what EPICURUS really said.  He was a great philosopher incredibly maligned by Christian polemics.  He speaks to me these days.
See a summary of his views: EPICURUS

I am VERY CONCERNED about the way in which the earth is being devastated - climate change, fossil fuels, water, forests, etc.  Has Capitalism run its course?  
I have been reading some books that address this issue as well as others.  Please see my book reviews:

I have just retired from my other business converting audio and video from old formats to the new, digital formats - LPs, 45s, 78s, and Cassettes to CDs.

For the past few years I have been spending my winters down in Ft. Walton Beach Florida.

I hope that I can reconnect with friends and acquaintances from the past. Please drop me a note that you have found me.
  Old friends may be interested in my BIO as well.

Although I was raised as a Christian, and served as a choir director in the Columbus UU church, my beliefs have changed radically, so that today I call myself a "naturalist". i.e. no supernatural things - If you are interested, I invite you to check out my STATEMENT in the link above.

Thanks for checking in, and keep in touch. (email address is in the CONTACT INFO link)
