I'm interested in ideas and like to talk about them [bring on the religion and politics!] and food and wine. I want to hear what you're passionate about and why. Not great at chit-chatting and talking for the sake of talking. Silence when you or I don't have anything to say is very fine. I'm postmodern and multicultural in thinking and tastes, but that does not mean anything goes. Although anti-religious and not really spiritual, I find something delightfully mystifying to the Buddhist's notion of wei-wu-wei. I'm anomalous but definitely not 'quirky.'
I love the Bay Area's proximity to fantastic non-urban areas [the urban's not so bad either]. How lucky we are to live here. Weekends and midweek find me hiking somewhere. I may also be in the kitchen. I love cooking with wine [a glass of it in my hand or in the pot]. Some of my 'creations' may not come out as envisioned but it's about the journey, right? In a former life I taught at Cal Sailing. That experience has got me on boats crewing (foredeck and helm) in Lake Michigan, Long Island and in the Mediterranean.
