I'm curious, and probably all of us are. Aside from your regular physical health-related activities, what other interests or hobbies do you spend time on?

in no particular order:
  • photography (both from the compositional through to the deep dive technical)
  • electronics including construction and repair of my gear
  • riding two wheelers (motorcycle and electric scooter)
  • mechanical work (servicing the above two)
  • design and construction of ideas (such as my shed and my solar floor heating / insulation for my house
  • I suppose research and writing on my blog may also qualify, so perhaps an interest in education
  • recording, watching and photographing birds

I belong to the LA Symphonic Winds. We perform many concerts each year.
I enjoy taking my dog in the ring for Rally and beginner novice obedience, also barn hunt.
I’ve gone to USC football games, Dodger & Laker game.
My daughter and I have been to 3 Operas. All wonderful.
We like going out to eat at new restaurants, ( the extra salt isn’t good but…)
Going to the beach is always calming!

Aside from family time and work (which is most of the time), I’m enjoying photography more. With two in college and three more busy with extracurricular activities and school, it’s not easy to cultivate my own hobbies though.

My friend accidentally found the pot of gold hidden in an outdoor aviation display. I had not known such things were done. He left it as he found it.

My interest is in art and music. I noodle on guitar and keyboards. I have oil painted, drawn, sculpted and currently am animating. I also read a lot at times. Cook as well. No collection but I enjoy art galleries, art shows and museums.
