I've traveled around a large part of this country and been to Europe, South and Central America and want to travel much more. It's pretty important to me to get to a locale with a warm beach at least once a year but would go more often if slightly prodded.
Intelligent people who can maintain my interest and challenge me to think about a variety of perspectives, particularly societal and political issues are a must in my life. I have a good core group of friends who do not suffer fools lightly! They keep me on my toes and don't let me get away with any crap.
I stay informed by reading the NY Times and Atlantic Monthly; watching PBS, Link TV and listening to NPR as sort of a base. Then I pick up what I can from other trustworthy sources.
I eat very healthy, fresh food and believe that good health is not to be taken for granted. I'm trying to become a better photographer by actually including people in my shots! I own all my clothes which range from jeans and t-shirts to formal wear.
