Music, Movies, and Books

I read compulsively, listen to any group with a live drummer at least once, but as for movies, cut to the chase.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My Testarossa, the birth of our boy, racing on horseback against languid giraffes, ghost hunting, being chased up a tree by black rhino, the Nissan GT-R, compiling a tripe safari, 1975 KWV Roodeberg wine, being published in hardback, soft rain in the Kalahari desert.

Teach, Learn, Share

Dream in detail, it happens - eventually. Do unto others what you want yourself, it returns - soon.
