I saw a listing for tracking lions in the desert. I really wish
that was my job. But, I hear the pay isn't great.
Anyway in my spare time:
Photo projects, a bit of film-directing/editing. Getting back into
some acting. Developing a writing portfolio (articles). Trying on
an elaborate recipe. Riding my motorcycle.
I am in the process of renovating a condo in an old textile mill,
so that's fun.
By day, working 40 at a small publishing company. To wit: I have a
new refrigerator and washer and dryer. This is baller. Renting your

Food: A lifelong goal to work through. I have food goals. I have
recently acquired skills in pizza making with a stone, a peel, and
homemade dough. Sweet lordy mama, it's good.
I like to gain skills, but the people's food is the best food. I
just like it to be delicious. Can it please be delicious?

enjoying a glass of wine and a book.
