I play violin in a couple of amateur orchestras; the Union Chapel is my favourite music venue.
I do a bit of running and yoga. I should do more.
I dabble in photography, drawing and print-making. My talent in these departments is limited but the results give me a good giggle and I enjoy the creative processes.
I love trees, herbs and thunderstorms. I enjoy a good romp around the countryside, the hillier the better.
Film: Little Miss Sunshine
So I've just completed my annual pilgrimage to WOMAD. Here is a sample of this year's top finds:
The Very Best: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr9hkox3ALA&list=PLMLE3N9hSLkJtFzhST00pUX5e06-utCkk
The Correspondents: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABS-mlep5rY
Other than that, some other favs are: Civil Wars, Mumford, Nigel Kennedy (he's amazing and done way more than The Four Seasons), Pink Martini, Hidden Orchestra, Rodrigo & Gabriela, Parov Stellar Band, Babylon Circus, the Kinks, Rachmaninov, Chopin, Britpop and a bunch of others from across genres, across the globe and through the ages.
Food (specifically): halloumi, plum sauce, mango chutney
Food (generally): Thai, Vietnamese, sushi. And cake. I like cake.
Hills and fresh air
