I guess I'm someone that can enjoy retro as much as I do the modern and futuristic.

It seems my desire to discover and explore has never left me, and through the years has intensified rather than abated.

Almost any area of life fascinates me, and whether it's the work of art of a past master or a child doodling on a pad of paper, it's creative and interesting, and I enjoy engaging in each one just as much.

From farming, gardening, entertainment, spiritual, or investment to business, arts and crafts, child rearing and enjoying life in general, each has its place and I like to focus on what is right in front of me rather than into the future, so I can always live in the wonder of the moment.
