The best ways he's found to decompress from stress and chill out in Miami:
Out of the home: "Listening to audiotaped courses while driving on I-95 (it is pretty easy to ignore road maniacs when you are thinking about Plato)."
And when he leaves terra firma, he likes to take "a slow trip by outboard over to Whiskey Creek at John U. Lloyd State Park in Hollywood on a weekend."
Culturally: "Just about anything produced at New Theatre in Coral Gables." Gastronomically: "Enriqueta's Sandwich Shop (when I am looking for the antithesis of the power lunch). I usually get the chicken steak at Enriqueta's, though I enjoy watching others eat less healthful things."
In the home: "I do my reading everywhere and anywhere there is time or space, during lunch breaks, in bathrooms, in the car (audiotapes), even during moments of late- night insomnia." On the list: "The novels of Thomas Wolfe and William Faulkner, anything written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, the New York Times Book Review."
And finally some truly decompressing activities: "Listening to folky Sixties music [and] talking with my secret guru."
On top of all that: If the office must become home, make the best of it: He does "anything that will make my secretary laugh. I do various things with the secretaries to make them laugh, one of which was an imitation of Barry White."
