I am an Englishman stranded, by choice, in France for many a long year. I eat, drink, write, design, occasionally paint and even more occasionally carry out household improvements. I enjoy most things stimulating, with the total exception of rap music which I detest. I feel one should detest something to exhibit some form of intellectual maturity, so there you go. I am beginning to grow up because I listen to jazz from time to time and am totally unimpressed with a lot of popular music since the 1990′s.
I also find that I see a lot of popular modern art for what it is, that needs no amplification. I dabble in local politics, mainly because it is so completely different from my native culture, naturally I leave not one hint of an effect.
