In my leisure time I prefer chess with close friends and various relatives for intellectual entertainment and stimulation. The only problem is that, like golf, chess is very time consuming =( (note: I also enjoy golfing a lot but I rarely get to play it much these days unfortunately). Instead and for numerous health reasons, I am just now beginning to learn and practice the ancient Chinese martial art called tai chi. This is very exciting for me, so please ask me about my lessons often and I will tell you everything that i am learning! For transportation, i prefer cycling to automobile driving, and I keep fit this way too. However sometimes i will simply take long walks in and around the city where I live (Washington DC, USA) when our weather here is cooperating nicely. This helps to relax my mind. Sometimes I pray to G-d as I do my chores and weekly errands where I live. Finally, I am an avid musician all my life long since my earliest of childhood memories. And so I'll admit that i play the acoustic and electric guitars since I was 11! My favorite genre is Christian praise and worship music (I really like Hillsong United and Matt Redman). Eventually, I desire to perform also with my church rock band ministry for young adults here in the Washington DC area or perhaps in other countries in Jesus' name.
