I am serving on a couple of Boards (An Arts organization and a NY City appointment) and would like to support other such organizations. I can do more. I do need a creative outlet (voice lessons?).
Most importantly, I have been able to keep my self-respect and positive outlook through the good times and the bad times. I know that such ups and downs are part of the rhythm of life.
Although I have fallen off lately, it's been my practice to focus on the works of Nobel Prize and Booker Prize winners. I also have an extensive collection of art books (more later). I do enjoy museums and galleries.
I'm a big jazz fan, vocals and instrumentals -- Cassandra Wilson, Nina, Kurt Ellling, Frank, Johnny Hartman, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Lou Rawls, Sam Cooke, Coltrane, A. Braxton, Gregory Porter, Abdullah Ibraham -- and try to stay on the scene by regularly attending the jazz venues. I like Country and Bluegrass, too. By the way, I think that I can sing, but deep, deep in my heart, I know that I am not good enough.
Love movies but this, too, has fallen off.
Quality food at quality venues
NYC Parks esp, Prospect, Madison and the High Line
