"So,...what does one actually do with an education in the classics?" I have run into this question through out my life. Well, for one, it leads to a strong sense of independence for people with knowledge of "dead" languages and the practices of forgotten cultures are often viewed with some suspicion. The passage of time and life has brought me to more distant shores. I enjoy my work as a professional a clockmaker and antique shop owner. Antiquarius, or exactly, Antiquarius Antiques & Curiosities, is my shop's name. So,..... tongue firmly in cheek, I have become a curator/purveyor of antiquities and a time machine mechanic... isn't life strange?
Interests: Gardening and more gardening..... medieval history and amature astronomy. I love my work as the owner of an eclectic antique shop. My alternate career as professional horologist began when I fixed my grandmother's broken alarm clock when I was 14, which unknown to me at the time was to change the later course of my life.
I enjoy a quite life with my partner and my two cats. I love listening to baroque music, Beethoven, and the group, YES.
