What we like to do

Every morning, David and I go to our CD cabinets and choose a classical CD to listen to. I enjoy Mozart piano sonatas and Corelli violin sonatas, whereas David prefers symphonies composed by Tchaikovsky and Mahler. He likes lots of brass and woodwinds; I like quiet strings and piano.

We also attend the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra concerts as well as the Hawaii Opera Theater productions once or twice per month.

The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra at the Blaisdell Concert Hall in September 2014:

Symphony 003-A

Then, there are sports. Lately, we have been watching golf and football on TV. We root for golfer Jason Day when he makes a successful putt. We agonize when the University of Hawaii football team loses big-time to the likes of Ohio State and Wisconsin. And we always follow the vagaries of Tennessee Titan quarterback Marcus Mariota’s performance on the field.

I also like to try new recipes in the kitchen, and David is a willing guinea pig. We go out to dinner periodically. Last night, we dined at Ryan’s after the symphony concert. We also have friends and family over for a home cooked meal.

Once in a while, we tour art exhibits, and when we see a painting we like, we buy it.

This is a colorful oil painting we purchased from Jenny Lee in December 2014:

It hangs in our dining area:

David and I always manage to have a good time.

    Music was once my great pleasure,but my ears are no good any more and most music sounds like screeching and squawking,alas. It’s like being tone deaf.
