Living both in northern California and Munich Germany for the time being.
Once, I decided that it would be a good idea to travel by train across the vast expanses China, Korea, Russia, the Baltic states and Poland. I found it fascinating and strangely calming, although not quite as luxurious as the Czar probably imagined.
More recently, I started work on rehabilitating a run-down ranch in northern California (with some wine grapes). So far so good - have been thinking about growing more things, and am making a little wine from the zinfandel this year.
A man has to know his limitations...and stay flexible. I like to feel ready to go at a moment's notice to the airport or on a long road trip. I don't have any rules, they are more like guidelines really. Most stuff isn't too important. I like to concentrate on what I regard as elemental. I like solitude and good company equally.
