I retired about two years ago and am living happily in Perth, Western Australia, after a career as a geologist in the energy sector. We had the good fortune to live all over the world and — through a series of unlikely events — were able to settle here permanently. My wife (Nikki) and my three daughters are all happy and healthy: one is an accountant, one a graphic designer, and one owns an auto repair shop on the south coast about five hours from Perth. I am still playing music — in a pub band of “vintage” musicians, and have been co-producing an album with a friend of mine from Cairo. Life is good. Western Australia is an extraordinary part of the world with great weather, scenery, and wines, and we’d love to catch up with anyone who passes through — although that isn’t likely anytime soon!
