Here's a summary of my activities and interests:
- Scottish Gaelic Language
- In addition to studying the language, I host
study group in Boulder.
- Painting in watercolor. Drawing--learning colored pencil.
And making pop-ups, of course.
- I'm mostly interested in Scottish and Irish music, but like all
sorts of world music (Arabian, Latin, Indian, and Reggae in particular),
rock, jazz, and folk.
- My favorites are sf, mystery, classics, history, and science.
