I love being out on the water (outrigger canoe, surfski, SUP, kayak). I also love writing poetry and painting it (abstract expressionism) and composing piano and ukulele songs. My ultimate dream is to write and illustrate children's books (I've worked on a doggy character for several years...he is based on my younger sister's giant, black labradoodle). Being in nature, being creative....these are things that make me feel like me. I sometimes wonder what we will do in the Millennial Kingdom and in eternity...?
