Outside of MAYA
Doing something physically active―running, swimming, biking, rock climbing, and anything else that catches my fancy, mentally active―writing and chatting about philosophy, societal norms and how they came to be, or exploring various mediums of expression―lighting, glass blowing, photography, clay work, carpentry, etc.
