I'd rather be an artist than a viewer.

Being a reader and a writer, both are equally important.

I listen to music, because I'm totally without talent in the making of it!!!!

Interesting subject today.

Barclay and I are waiting patiently for GD Alex to wake up, so we can have a cuppa' together!! :D Barclay is curled up in my lap keeping me warm in the recliner.

I would rather be an eater than a cook. The cook in my house agrees that's what he prefers too :D
I am music and photography illiterate. So what other choice can I have :P
I read a lot more than I write. But it always cost me much more time writing then reading :twisted:

I am a:
Writer, Reader, Photographer, Listener, and Tea Slurper.

I am listening to a bootleg concert from Explosions in the Sky at the Central Park Summer Stage. I like finding recordings of shows I have been to.

I am drinking 2008 Yame Gyokuro, aged by me.

I hate reading and photographing :?

For me music and listening are the same thing, ultimately, to play instruments is listening.

My ending dream, is to view as many things then write a good thing.

I would love to be more into photography :D

I put reader and listener. Actually, most evenings will find me in front of the computer with Itunes on shuffle, knitting or reading and drinking tea. Makes for a wonderful winter evening.

Reader, Writer, viewer and listener.

This topic is very close to what I always say about tv. I would rather be out experiencing things than seeing other people doing them, at least most of the time. Jaws is the exception, I would rather watch someone on tv get eaten by a shark than experience that one :D

I am really a bit of all of the above, but I love writing slightly more than I enjoy reading, I love taking photos, mainly to look through the ones I took for a potential great photo, and I love making music though lately I am much more of a listener. Although the seemingly hidden bonus, I think I may be better suited to appreciate teaware than make it, although I have dreamed of trying to make it. I just worry I would then look at all my pieces and keep asking "how did they do this?"

+1

I quite enjoy writing and have done some, but never really made the leap I would have liked to make. I enjoy reading, but it puts me to sleep. :lol: Often as I read, I admire the talent and ability of writers.

I admire the photos of other, including here on TC, but I seem to lack the patience and talent needed. So I admire, though one day I hope to kick my efforts up a notch.

I think my family is tone deaf, and I have come to accept this, so I love to listen.

Great TD, beginning with Yutaka Midori, followed by Matcha with the Mrs. And currently Oku Yutaka organic.
