Tinder will be published by Serotonin Press later this year. In the meantime, here is this epistolary autobiographical (somewhat embarrassing) novella, day by day. © Lyn Coffin

Good Morning Lyn,
Hope you had a good night sleep. A morning is a wonderful blessing, either cloudy or sunny. It stands for HOPE, giving us another start of what we call LIFE. Start your day with a new inspiration like a wave. Waves are inspiring, not because they Rise-and-Fall but because each time they Fall, they never fail to Rise again!
Lyn, I don't know how to start writing about myself but one thing I have passion for is nature and maybe traveling. I love traveling, sometimes it's the best way to get away and get a new breath of nature from another angle. In the Azores, there are numerous places on the island to see the natural “Funas” where the hot water still boils to the top. There are even places to swim in the naturally warm “volcanic water”. I did wonder, at some point when watching the boiling water and sulphur smoke from the “funas” rising from the earth, just how extinct the volcanoes actually are!
The islands are a photographer's dream destination due to the absolute lack of pollution, which enables the natural shades and colors of the landscape to be captured. I've been there only once and I wish to be there again especially with someone special. Hopefully, if we can find the chemistry in between, we can be happy to give it a shot.
Currently, I work as an independent financial consultant, coaching graduate trainees, I'm really good at engaging with people, organizing and running projects, cooking, listening, giving, traveling, creating a homey ambiance and environment, shopping, remembering what's important to you and sustaining relationship. I usually get compliments about my smiles. I love going to the beach, cruising and hiking. Oh my, I can go on and on telling you all I've always wanted to sit by the beach and discuss with my lover. Guess I'll stop here and wait to get your reply. I can't wait.
Take Care and Have a Lovely Day Ahead
Ps: I attached some of my recent pictures. Hope you like them
