I'm still in Fairfield Iowa but hope to escape in a few years. I was born in Portland, Oregon.

The coastal village was Arch Cape, although I wintered in Cannon Beach and Gearhart a few times. I rented beach homes during the off season.

I lived in Seaside a couple years but that place has turned into a mini Atlantic City.

I'm sort of stuck in Fairfield but my plan is to reach escape velocity in 2-3 years and find a beach. Water, mountains, trees - anything but Iowa.

Fairfield is such a spiritual pressure cooker. I can feel it during "dome times". I no longer even do tm (sometimes, I guess) and am experimenting with other forms of meditation.

One of my friends here in Fairfield(I have so few) is a dyed-in-the-wool southern baptist preacher turned zen master. It's been a real trip seeing him transform.

I have so many psych issues that my spiritual walk is clouded. But perhaps that's only from my worldly view.

Parsons used to be known as "Party U". I arrived in Fairfield in 1986. My daughter was one years old, now she's 19. There's something deeply wrong with Fairfield. Perhaps it's the rift between town and college. The hostility in this town is palpable.

I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.

Verne
