I'm an incurable romantic and still curious about the world and it's ways. My 3 kids are grown and now I'm enjoying watching my 4 grandchildren discover the world. I live with a big friendly dog and host frequently on (website hidden) (and travel sometimes this way too)
Music and songwriting are my passion. I enjoy performing too - small venues - and, as I didn't begin doing this till I was approaching 50, it's something I hope to be doing for the rest of my life. Like my songs, I like my movies to look at life from a 'sideways' perspective and avoid the obvious - eg pretty much anything by Cohen Brothers - no relation but I'm also a big Leonard Cohen fan too.
I tend to travel light (sometimes with a guitar though airlines can make this expensive). I like to get lost in a place and find what I'm meant to rather than walking around with my nose in a guidebook. I also find I meet some vbery interesting people this way.
My philosophy would be 'Why settle for a mere destination when the journey can be incredible in itself?'
