Music has been the primary focus in my life since I was 10 years of age.  But I am a life-long learner and really enjoy diving deep into new things.  Some of my passions over the years have been haiku, yoga, zazen meditation, health, food (cooking, macrobiotics, sourdough bread-making, fermenting), organic gardening, urban homesteading, permaculture, and sustainability.  I occasionally update a gardening blog I call A Man Is Like A Tree (named after the Albert Ayler song).
