    Freelance medical writing; occasional satire/humor
    Music & audio equipment (what did you expect?); power-walking; woodworking.
    I'm an "in remission" audiophile...all the big stuff (tube amps, preamp, TT, speakers the size of small refrigerators, etc) is in storage. Oh, well. I relocated my obssession to the desktop; digital audio has been a very pleasant surprise...I'd listened to CDs since the mid-'80s with no great affection, but my appreciation for digital audio from the hard drive has grown & grown--particularly w/the arrival of multi-bit digital (Audio GD NOS-19), which is rather amazing.
