I listen to music a great deal and I make music too - I play the French horn (for over 30 years). I was a classical purist for 20
years or so, but these days I'm into celtic, bluegrass, cuban, tango, jazz and more.
I've had the good fortune lately of being able to travel to some really great
places. Patagonia. The Galapagos. The Dolomites. Alaska. Tanzania The Grand Canyon
I'm an avid reader, and a while back I put together an annotated list
of my favorite books.
