I love to learn, and have recently realized that research is possibly my true calling.
I try to think "outside the box" to use a cliche where I should be able to think of a better way to say it.
Seeing situations from many points of view.
Thanks to my permaculture training, I see possibilities instead of obstacles. Re-imagining life.
And, not spending much money. I'd rather have time than money.
Non-fiction: Tao Te Ching, Permaculture: A Designer's Manual by Bill Mollison, David Holmgren's Permaculture book, TAZ and others by Hakim Bey, a few by Ken Wilber, Robert Anton Wilson.
Fiction: VALIS and others by Philip K. Dick, Ishmael and others by Daniel Quinn. Since I was a child I've been a fan of Daniel Pinkwater.
Calvin and Hobbes
movies: Brazil, Buckaroo Banzai, Donnie Darko, Monty Python, Mystery Men, Star Wars episodes IV-VI, The Princess Bride.
music: I stopped listening to the radio years ago, except for select shows on WQNA 88.3. Otherwise, I'm into: Cheb i Sabbah, Bonobo, Dead Can Dance, Radiohead, Portishead, dub, Beatles, Shpongle, Buena Vista Social Club, early Beck, the Orb. Recently a friend introduced me to some good drum-n-bass, especially Big Bud. My favorite CD of all time is Passion: Music for the Last Temptation of Christ by Peter Gabriel. It's deeply imprinted on me.
food: I'll eat just about anything I'm presented with, as long as it's really food, and not something too weird like live octopus tentacles. I have a couple favorite restaurants here in Springfield. As far as ethnic, I've never tried anything I didn't like. If pressed, I'll say my favorite food is pizza. Also, I like strong flavors: garlic, dark chocolate, strong dark-roasted coffee. Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir, kim chee, kombucha, and more, are yummy and nutrition-enhanced.
TV: I haven't had one in about ten years. But I must admit, one show has worked its way into my heart: Phineas and Ferb. Someone got me through the first 3 seasons of LOST. And more recently I've been enjoying the good, dumb fun of Trailer Park Boys.
Paradise apocalypse--unpacking meanings from that phrase has been fun.
Psychology; spirituality; religion; altered states of consciousness. God/Spirit/the Divine and the pure awareness at the heart of each of us.
Chaos. Wabi-sabi (not to be confused with wasabi). The Tao.
OK, I just spend a lot of time thinking.
