I follow current events, from municipal to international. I like to read fiction and nonfiction, not counting the daily journalism I read. I am a big music fan and listen to music from the 1940s to present. I also like to exercise as often as I can, from swimming, to jogging, to stair climbing. Every now and then I play drums if I have access to a kit.
