What types of activities/hobbies do you enjoy in your free time?

I love to travel, and I enjoy the sun and the beach. Venice, with its rich history, and Kauai, with its natural wonders, have been my favorite places to travel so far. Their rich history is fascinating.

I enjoy working out and exercising on a regular basis.

I am a big fan of the Orioles and major league baseball. I follow most games throughout the long schedule, and have had to tough out several disappointing seasons. Baseball is full of numbers and statistics, which drew me to it at a young age.

If you could retire now and money wasn’t a concern, what would you do with your free time?

Naturally, I would travel and see as many interesting parts of the world as I could. I would also like to take lessons to learn Italian. My parents are Italian, and my father’s first language is Sicilian, so I regret not picking up on a second language as a child.

I would also read as much as I could–on the beach or by the pool, or when traveling to various places.

What is your favorite motto or quote and what significance does it have to you?

‘If the sweetness of our lives did not depart, there would be no sweetness at all.’
Stephen King
The Wind Through the Keyhole.

This sentence resonated with me when I read it, and it has come to my mind more often than I anticipated. I’ve interpreted its meaning more loosely, which makes me appreciate positive feelings and enjoyable experiences more.

What one word would you use to describe yourself and why?

Loyal. I am very loyal to my family and friends, employers, clients, etc. I also am faithful and dedicated to my work and obligations. I think those who know me well appreciate that aspect of me.
