Historical fiction informs me about history and philosophy. I
didn't understand its value in high school. "A Fine Balance", my
favourite book, was a tough way to learn about the caste system and
politics in India. "Soylent Green" is a great movie which long ago
made me question the way we use our resources, before global
warming or the global economy were hot topics. Having said that,
I'm a hopeless romantic. "The Notebook" is the type of devoted
relationship I'd love to live. I don't watch TV any longer; I want
to take that time to read and be in the real world.
I love finding new songs and musicians. Some of my favourites: Ella
and Billy Bonnie Rait, Debussy, Bach, Secret Sister, (I admit Hank
Williams' "Rolypoly" is an old fave). CBC 94.1, first thing in the
morning, is a great source for new sounds.
Food, hmmm... well, I'm a vegetarian: lacto, ovo, pesco. Sounds
scary to the uninitiated, but I did eat meat and and don't miss it
- at least most of the time. Believe it or not, I can make this
limited diet taste pretty good!
