Interests and Personality

BiographyI'm a British expatriate (Welsh, actually). I have lived for most of my adult life in Germany after coming here originally to sing opera. I retired from the stage a few years ago but am still very active in many fields, including conducting my two choruses and writing all the arrangments for them, writing for a school book publisher and occasionally for myself (!), translating for various clients (including a couple of universities) and of course painting, which has been a passion all my life but only an intensive pursuit for the last eight years or so.
InterestsI love books, theatre, art exhibitions, good food, music of all kinds, shopping and congenial company. I also love driving my little car and try to visit "home" at least once a year. None of this is in any particular order.
MusicAll kinds. My choruses sing popular songs in barbershop style and/or swing. My new chorus is now about 4 months old we have already had a successful singout! I sang over 100 opera roles during my stage career, including many Wagner and Verdi roles and parts such as Carmen and Joan of Arc. Those were the days.
FilmsI'm not really a cinema-goer. I hate it when the volume is deafening. I usually wait till films are shown on TV.
TelevisionI watch a couple of soaps and a lot of who dunits. Some comedy is quite good, but the German sense of humour is more slapstick than mine.
BooksBooks on art, science, psychology etc and I love Alexander McCall Smith's novels. I still reread Dorothy Sayers from time to time and scan Amazon at least once a week for anything new in the waay of crime or satirical novels.
HeroesMy father for his courage, my son for his wisdom.


In August I smashed my working wrist i.e. the one I use most! I didn't paint anything until the beginning of this year and my hand is still not really the way it should be and I may have to live with restrictions for ever. I'm sorry I haven't been here for all that time! I don't know if I can revive the two exhibition invitations I had to cancel. I'm really not sure now if my desire to paint is still there. While I was laid up I went back to another activity, writing, and I am still on that track.I will try to catch up on friends and requests now!
