work, my family -- especially my 5-year-old grandson, my students, my home, my garden, my travels, my friends. Starting to think about slowing down, traveling more, cooking more, making new friends, learning and understanding more. I've lived all over--France, Switzerland, Chile, Germany, Australia--and still love immersing myself in other cultures. Now that I'm more settled, I make it my business to know a little bit about everything--all the new ideas and happenings. I want to keep my fingers on the pulse....
having a good time, kissing, cooking, decorating, amusing my grandson, keeping plants alive, talking to animals, talking to myself, worrying about the stock market, wasting time.
Movies? Love 'em!! Used to teach the stuff! Just rewatched the Godfather trilogy again and it was awesome. Too many to name, but not enough good ones lately! If it's French or Italian, I'll probably love it. Lately I'm finding amazing films I missed in the past on Showtime, HBO, Starz, the Sundance Channel. And really good TV is a joy too. Music? Jazz, Yoyo Ma, Chris Botti, saxophone, Rod Stewart singing oldies, 60's favorites, latin music, samba, movie scores, piano bar, Chopin nocturnes, Spanish guitar, Madeline Peyroux, playing pre-recorded tunes on my keyboard with my grandson on my lap as I sing along and he struggles to learn the words.
