i spend my time by

- guitar playing with friends and the guitar ensemble,
- golfing (takes much time),
- reading,
- gardening (spring time in berlin),
- travelling (for golfing),
- family and friends,

at least

- watching and playing with our maine coones.
- Just do nothing. The problem is, you do not know exactly when you are done. :-)))

I used to play ice hockey but I broke my thumb and had to quit guitar. It took me 25 years to get back at it. The thumb is fine.

Sailor for 35 years, formerly in the waters of Southern California, now in the Salish sea.

Fly fishing. Me and Parkening and edcat7 and luthier Dake Traphagen. I had a chance to talk fly fishing a bit with CP at his master class last year (in guitar mit fishing).

Hmm. Sailing (not power boats), fly fishing (not bait casting), classical guitar (not metal). I wonder what that says about me?
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

Ha! Yes, I have a trusty Nikon 300m f4 (one of the best cheaper wildlife lenses). I used to do quite a bit of birding but that's waned as of late because of other responsibilities and, well, lots of guitar practice!

"In music I think it's very, very dangerous if you start to compare and say, 'This is good, this is not good, this is only one possibility' . . . there are so many possibilities, but what is important is to be open to that." - Pavel Steidl
