On the Lighter Side!

What I enjoy:

  • The obvious – Spending time with family and friends.
  • Good food. A spicy Thai meal.
  • A good movie (partial to thrillers and comedies).
  • Waking up early and reading in bed with a hot cup of tea.
  • Making photographs. I believe (Robert Waller – Bridges of Madison County) got it right when he wrote that great pictures are made and not taken.
  • Taking in a musical on Broadway.
  • Learning new stuff dealing with technology. What a time to be alive.

 What I do not enjoy:

  • Schmoozing – Do it sometimes because I have to.
  • Grading – Do it all the time because I have to.
  • Working out – it is too much work. Do it sometimes because I … (you got it).
