I am an eclectic guy who enjoys being outdoors for the beauty and the pleasure of it-- and I enjoy walking without being a fanatic for exercise. I enjoy music of all kinds (love the opera-season tickets), the theatre and fine arts. Maybe that is what I am fanatic about. I am a reader and love conversation that ranges and teaches in the speaking, the listening, the exchange and the learning. I am a writer of sorts--I will tell you about that when we speak.
