I never married or had children. First, I never found a partner with whom I wanted to spend the rest of my life, and second, I didn't want to be a mother, even though I am patient and generous with my students. Unlike children, they are not full-time. I am also a blend between an introvert who likes alone time to read, think, putter, and an extravert who enjoys socializing, conversing, listening, and, of course, humor.
For books: all the usual suspects: Huck Finn, Great Gatsby, Things They Carried, Out Stealing Horses, Remains of the Day, etc., etc.
For historians: Gordon Wood, David Potter
Film: The Lives of Others; Out of Africa; The Great Beauty; To Kill a Mockingbird; watching Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly dance.
Food: everything except beets, lima beans, and liver, but mostly vegetarian. Never pass up excellent food.
Exercise (cycling, hiking, yoga, walking, climbing, whatever)
