"Life is short; connect, do good, have fun!"

Scroll down to learn why I made this site and for my contact info.

Welcome to my vastly remodeled site!

Hi, I'm Jim!

"Connect, do good, have fun" is how I have come to live life. Living in this way has created beautiful opportunities for personal growth, positive impact, and invigorating activities!

I invite you to explore the ten sections of my site to learn about my interests and activities and how they embody my motto. Then ask yourself:

  • Do you relate to some of these? Or is your interest piqued? If so, let's meet... I'm retired so have time for more friends now!
  • Are you a part of an organization looking for help with something along these lines? I may be able to volunteer (I live in Madison, Wisconsin).
  • Would you like to learn more? Check out the resources and subsections, which include several articles I wrote; please let me know if you have questions or feedback.


You can reach me in the following ways; email is the best:

  • Email: jimwink - madison <that 'a'-like symbol> yahoo.com (you'll need to type this address into your email program using the '@' symbol and no spaces; I'm trying to avoid SPAM).
  • Mobile: 3 3 4 - 7 2 5 1 (email or FB messenger preferred to texting).
  • Land line: 2 5 9 - 1 8 1 2 (area code 6 0 8 for both).
  • Facebook, Skype, FaceTime, & Zoom: Yes! Please send me an email and I'll send you contact info.

I use the pronouns he/him, though I'm also comfortable with my softer, more feminine side of the gender expression continuum.
