:. I SPREAD IT PRETTY THIN
   
My personal interests are LEGION. One way to really appreciate the depth of my scattered mind is to consider hobbies I once enjoyed but have left behind, which range from leather-working to poetry to astronomy to auto repair.

At present, my main interests outside my profession (anything to get out of the dark theatre) are hiking/camping, motorcycling, and amateur (ham) radio ~ which includes public service as an emergency communicator for local governmental and disaster agencies. So at present, that's about it ~ that is, until the BAND takes off...

. . . IF I NEED IT AND DON'T HAVE IT, I DON'T NEED IT

I like to walk in the woods. Sometimes I take students (or my wife & dogs) camping or dayhiking. There are lots of critters down here, but the main danger is overheating ~ alligators? schmalligators...

This one often gets a chuckle from my student actors but in fact,  I have been able to help during some local disaster situations. You are not as safe as you think...and cell phones will be the FIRST thing to go.

No, really, every Thursday night I play guitar for the blues/rock band insert name here. where I pose as a Patrick.  Ours is a pretty eclectic mix. How serious is this? I bought equipment the other day.
