As I've grown older, I've become more of a sensualist, perhaps only to take advantage of the rest of my time, conscious time, while here on earth, letting nothing go to waste.
I am not an extreme sports guy, I don't climb, but I can't resist a scramble if it's not too exposed. I love hiking, skiing until I tore an ACL, XC skiing, snowshoeing, snorkeling, love warm water, but am not such a hot swimmer.
In Sept (2012), I was in Avignon; in Oct., I hiked up Wheeler Peak; in Nov, I'm photographing at O'Keefe's 'Black Place', and putting on make-up for the first time, for a DayOfTheDead party. I love being active, but I can lollygag about the house with the best. Jeez, I have to do this every month, now? So, in Dec. I snowshoed, and now in Jan., I am leading XC ski 'treks' for friends and hikers. ...And prepping for a photo show in the spring.
Well, it is a year later (June), and I am about to return to Provence et France. I will return in September/2013, House is rented for 3 months! Bon chance et bon jour!
