You can also see him regularly at a local gym where he works out with weights, accompanied by his two sons in their teens, or in the local huge and beautiful park, walking along the health paths up the surrounding mountains. Sometimes he takes the painter's case with him to stand on a mountain top and depict the beauty of this world on canvas. However, writing is his most favorite activity!
