Eldot, a simple cipher, is a nom de plume. Eldot is retired, and has lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of his life. Mother Nature has been kind to him in most respects, but he has lots of grey hair and a modest pot belly. The illusion in his mind that he is still in his thirties persists—if only his carcass would cooperate. But his physician happily reports that physically he is fifteen years younger than the calendar reports, so there’s still time for play.
In order to dodge the draft and avoid the Viet Nam war, he took an occupational deferment to teach Drama and English in a public high school. The interminable nature of the war and the draft lottery kept him in that occupation so long that he stayed there afterward, having been quite successful. Why change a good thing? The refuge had morphed into a career.
