About Words, their etymology, and language in general fascinate me. Choral music holds me rapt. I appreciate the outdoors. Astronomy intrigues me and I have more than a passing interest in geology and the natural sciences. I’d like to go hiking and cross country skiing more often, and learn to use all my camera’s features! Things I enjoy, but haven’t done for a while: sailing, motocross, dirt-biking and traveling. As I give this more thought, I’m sure I’ll discover some buried treasure - which I may or may not share on this page.
