Music is one of the most important things in my life. I attend dozens of concerts every year, and spend a fair amount of my disposable income on tickets and CDs.
I was raised by my sisters from the age of 11, and I like to think I have a healthy respect for the women in my life. Coming from a very non-traditional family, I extend my sense of family into my circles of friends and colleagues.
I have never been an athlete, and have basically zero interest in professional sports. I only care 'who won the game' because it effects my friends' moods! Fortunately, I have a slim build and walking/hiking along with occasional visits to the gym seem to be enough to keep me feeling good about my body. I *would* like to work on stretching/yoga a bit more, as I am not as limber as I would like to be. I would also like to learn to surf but it is just too cold here. Will someday go back to Hawaii and to Costa Rica to try it again. So much fun in warm water!
I do smoke cigarettes and marijuana, and I do drink socially. I know this will be a deterrent for many people, and I regret that my habits may close some doors for me, but one has to be honest about such things!
