Classical music: grew up in ballet and was a professional tap
dancer by the age of 12. I majored in music at university
(percussion). I've been known to get a groove on to Indian sitar
music and drums.
I love most programing/films from the BBC. Foreign films. Listen to
internet radio of stations back home in Scotland. Studied to become
a film producer in the 90s.
Books - World history and ancient civilizations.
Religious studies -Lama Surya Das, HH Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat
British or Scottish mysteries - Ian Rankin, Val McDermid,
Cormac McCarthy, Stieg Larsson.
The Classics, always.
Sports - I love rugby (Rugby Union/Six Nations/World Cup play) and
American baseball. Have friends overseas who play cricket and I am
learning how the game is played.
Here in Washington state, I have become a Seahawks fan. In the
past, I watched F1 Racing, but am in a lapse...lol.
