Food : Sushi is what I would eat as last thing to enjoy if I knew the world to end the day after. Probably at Ushiwakamaru, if I can't make to Japan....
The six things I could never do without
1: Pencils and the sharpener of course.
2: Camera : My dear Leica M - nope it's not film.This classic rangefinder body has a digital sensor update on it. But still can fit any lens made back in 50s. Never leave home without it.
3: My Vespa PX . It gets me anywhere in the city in 15 minutes. Its two stroke engine in a spring morning is a music to my ears. ( a helmet )
4:All digital gadgets by Apple. ( update pass on apple watch )
5: Coffee and my Peugeot manual coffee grinder. A design that hasn't changed since 1800s. The best way to get the flavor out of beans. Certain things should stay low-tech.
6: Jazz : preferably live at the Smalls.
6: Sushi...
6. NY Times Sunday Paper
6: Converse Slip-ons. Have multiple pairs of them.

and as for 7 : none of the above. we human beings have amazing ability to adopt to new conditions. we can give up any habits and adopt new ones if need to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
do the trees feel, hear us? Do I need to trim my beard today or tomorrow?
On a typical Friday night I am
it depends. Meeting up friends for movies , drinks or enjoy being by myself at home with music and a good book. It is a thrill to come home from work every other friday. I have an awesome cleaning person that makes my place spotless. Those nights are more likely that I might be home.
You should message me if
you are on left side of the Political Spectrum, against Death Penalty, you are pro-choice, support gay marriage, preferably atheist , or agnostic , or religious but you don't think your religious values are the only true values. ( in the end people created gods not gods created people ) . you have a curious mind and you like to is fine if Alchemist inspired you but your reading taste goes well beyond that...
