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).
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 Stones, The Kinks, The Doors, The Turtles, The Byrds, The Buckinghams, The Rascals, The Association. 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.
