I love the arts. I am particularly fond of music and painting, although I do not paint. I am retired guitar player (retired from playing all the time not work lol) though I do pick it up from time to time for a little jam session. I have recently become impassioned by ventriloquism! it's such an interesting art form and has so much interesting history behind it. I hope to pick it up as a hobby, though it is a bit tough in the beginning! I'm just starting to tiptoe out into the world of social networks or whatever "cool" thing they are calling it now. I hope to find many interesting new things here!
