I tried many things: elected local government, congressional staff work, rural economic development, Czech local government law, international student advising. Through all of this I have been guided by my love for my native Catskill Mountains and for the Czech Republic which I first visited in 1967. I do love those people (true humanists and master brewers) and since 1979 have been trying to master their language.
