I have been called eccentric by my family, peculiar by my friends, odd by acquaintances, and I have evinced such things as "Oh Lord, here he goes again!" from all and sundry. I am 78 years old and have been happily married for 50 years.
I am as fluent as anyone in the Yorkshire dialect, OK in French, passable in German and mainly operatic Italian, and I have a smattering of other European languages.
I am interested in the brain and it's development and it's relation to behavior (particularly what might be called aberrant behavior).
I listen to German Lieder of which I have a large collection. I have been fascinated by Winterreise for many years and I still believe I have not completely plumbed its depths.
