Introduction I love to hike, camp, explore. Dancing -- contradancing -- is a new passion. Try it. You will be so happy.
Interests Gardening, piano, cuisine, good movies, wine
Favorite Movies "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (don't you love the little jig that Walter Huston's character, Howard, does in the flop house, and that look of disgust on Bogart's face?)
Favorite Music baroque ... i said BAROQUE, not classical (which is good, too)
Favorite Books "Lost Moon: The Story of Apollo 13" by mission commander James Lovell the film is pretty good, too; the original music composed by James Horner -- particularly the section during the launch of the Saturn V rocket -- is incomparable Another good book -- "Schindler's List" by Australian author Thomas Keneally ... again, it was made into a fine movie, but that cannot compare with the author's amazing story

Your people want to make a statue in your honor. What will it be made out of and what victory will it commemorate?

Make it out of sand. Raise a glass of champagne and watch the sun set as high tide comes in. Scatter my ashes from Coronado Memorial.
