I was far better looking when I was 10 and now (looking at the above) I look too much like Larry Fine (before his stroke).
At this writing, I'm pudgy and one of the picture attests to that. Losing weight and getting into proper shape is my spring goal.
I write, I draw portraits, and read. I have both a large library in history, interspersed among, are many rare books.
I embrace nostalgia as something precious but am not consumed by it - all the same, I'd trade all my books to go back to the summer of 1969, to spend an afternoon with my grandmother Sophie.
I teach and enjoy my students, and my class time. I'm very appreciative for having the good fortune to teach. Without it, I'd be a lost soul - it's not hyperbole.
I love art, classic rock from the 60s, and classical music in general. Beethovan's 6th, Ibert's Ports of Call, Vaughan Williams, The Lark Ascending, and Debussy's, La Mer are highlights. I love the Baroque, and Romantic periods. As much so I do with The Beatles, The Kinks, The Doors, The Turtles, The Association, and The Stones... The Mindbenders, (It's getting harder all the time - a fav)- and Pet Clark, (Downtown).
I love art, architecture and the decorative arts be all this lot: Braoque, Rococo, Hudson River, Barbizon, Nouveau, Deco, Cubist, Greek Revival, Federalist, Empire, Beaux-Arts, prairie and mission style...and so on.
Nature, Museums, and used bookstores are temples.
I always see good in people but be it known, I hate republicans with the same intensity it takes a chunk of coal to become a diamond.
