Being Irish, I have an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustains me through temporary periods of joy.
I watch Premiership football, the Jays, the Leafs and the Cubs.
I go to live music at venues like the Dakota, the Horseshoe and Lee's and will travel for a favourite who's not coming through town.
I also play golf, walk the earth, read and write and sip rather than shoot.
Music is going when movies stop, tending to indie/alternative but I can enjoy just about anything. Of late I've been listening to CBC 2 more frequently.
Authors? Ians Rankin and McEwan, Johns le Carre, Irving and MacDonald, George Orwell, JG Ballard, Joseph Conrad, Graham Greene, Umberto Eco, Tom Robbins and Raymond Chandler.
2. Peanut butter cups. And I share.
3. Travel, in spite of the travelling.
4. Pleasant things, beyond peanut butter cups, to eat and drink with friends.
5. Nature, beauty, and beauty in nature.
