The one thing I am passionate about...
Life in general. I love nature a great deal. I have interstests in (and not in any particular order) photography, piano, nature, tennis, golf, science, scuba diving, astronomy, travel, technology (computers, etc), our freedom, our military men and women, meeting new people, keeping myself somewhat healthy, etc.
I typically spend my leisure time
Playing the piano, trying to learn some "classical" music; Bach, Debusey, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, et al. Photography, learning new techniques - depth of field, exposure times, etc., and how to put those techniques to use. Watching and learning about nature. Most of my vacations revolved around nature and photography. I watch some TV, mostly on TVLand, movies, history, and science shows. Work outside to keep the yard in decent shape.
