About Me

Hello...I am new here. I love music, both listening, playing, and writing, and am interested in meeting others who share these same interests. I have loved music for a long, long time, but I still consider myself pretty much of a novice because I don't do it full time or it would be too much like work. I am mostly self-taught, but over the years I have taken some lessons.
I doubt that I will ever become a really good musician in this lifetime since my life is almost over. But maybe I will have a good foundation for the next. For the past two years I have been struggling with an eye problem that is threatening to take the visual acuity from my left eye...but fortunately my right eye is still normal, so I must look at the glass as half full, and not half empty. I can still read, write, drive, and work, so I consider myself very fortunate. Even if I completely lose my sight, I will still love music...maybe even more than I do now as I'm sure I will appreciate it more as I can still hear pretty good altho that seems to be slowly going to hell too. Just one of the many benefits of getting older that we all have to look forward to. Blindness has not stopped many good musicians out there and I don't plan on letting it stop me...if it happens. I am still working full time doing anesthesia, but I plan on retiring in another twenty-eight months, and then I plan on doing hypnosis full time as I now do it part time. I have a wonderful wife, four grown children, and six grandkids who I don't get to see as often as I'd like. But then I don't want them bugging me too much either as the older I get the more I like my privacy. I live on a 4000 acre walleye lake in the beautiful upper peninsula of Michigan and I love to fish. I have many other hobbies as well, so I manage to stay pretty busy up here in "God's Country" I like people and getting to know different folks of all ages and backgrounds and I enjoy e-mailing friends and family. There is a lot more interesting stuff about me, but you will have to ask me specific questions if you want to know more...if not, that's o.k. too. Have a great day......R.J.
