Man, Kentucky, USA
I am a retired university instructor of English language and literature, having spent the bulk of my teaching career in Asia and the Middle East. Overseas teaching definitely has a shelf life, though, so I now work on a semi-retired basis as a freelance indexer. You don’t get rich doing that, but the lack of any bosses suits me well.
Originally from North Carolina, I have lived in a small central Kentucky town for the last eighteen years. Life as an atheist in the Bible Belt can be lonely, so I was happy to join this site last fall. Things are improving here in this town, though—it finally discovered the repeal of Prohibition a couple years ago, so now there are actually places to go and hang out at--you know, like what folks do in other parts of the country do.
