I am sure I have all kinds of extraneous influences that have guided me through my adult life and are still guiding me. It probably ranges from what I saw at home and what I saw around me as a child and teenager, to the things I experienced later on in my life, but in particular when living and working in Uganda.
So what was 2016 like? I visited the two museums, but for the rest I did not do much more culturally. I went to one opera and two classical concerts. As I mention in a previous blog, I try to read, but that is difficult after a hard day’s work, after a commute, with tired eyes and tired mind, and a slight case of dyslexia. I did finish one masterpiece of literature: Hemingway’s: The Old Man and the Sea, and boy that was a thick book (just kidding), but a masterpiece none-the-less!
