Here are some of my interests...
Travel & Photography I want to
travel and see the world. There is so much to learn and experience but at least
I have made a decent start of it. I finally made it to countries #40 and
#41! My father worked for Kodak for 35 years, which meant I was
practically born with a camera in my hand. Now that I have both a slide
and print a scanner, I am feverishly photographs online. I also have
started selling stock photography. I have not switched to digital because
the cameras I can afford do not have enough resolution yet. Since so much of my
photography relates to travel, I have combined the travel and photography pages.
and places to learn more about them...
Philosophy & Religion I
have always thought it was important to think about the meaning of life by
learning from books, talking with people and seeing the world. Although it
all sounds very abstract, religion and philosophy are valuable guides to self discovery.
All virtue starts from within...
Classical Music Although
I was introduced to it in college, I have been making up for lost time.
However, the only instrument I play is the stereo!
Rock Music I have always
been fond of rock music. My roots with this go back to my childhood when
I used to collect Beatles songs. Since then it expanded to include Pink
Floyd and other groups. .
Chinese Language & Culture
My interest in China started when I read about Daoism as a teenager. After
living in Taiwan, I was terminally hooked. After all, how many societies
have more than twenty major schools of philosophy!
My Friends and Family People,
especially those close to us are the most important part of being a human
My Favorite TV Shows Hey,
I'm no culture snob. I have always been partial to science fiction, but
it is the GOOD KIND (at least I think so), which is well worth watching.
Although I love politics, economics, history and psychology, there are
too many links around for me to make a decent list. Those who like these
things will have their own lists anyway.
I like computers but more to use on specific projects than as ends in
themselves. I have many other interests such as biking (unless I crash)
and hiking. I also enjoy art and theatre and rode horses for 10
years. I also collect stamps (both foreign and US), coins, antiques, books
and local crafts from around the world. I also would like to learn new things
that I never thought about doing before...skydiving sounds interesting...and
finally DID learn Scuba! Oh yes, I
really want to learn to fly a plane.
