Fiction that makes you think by Lois McMaster Bujold
, Octavia Butler
, Philip K. Dick
and Joe Haldeman
Explorations of what it is to be human by Malcolm Gladwell
, George Lakoff
My best friend teased me when I teared up watching The Princess
and the Frog
, Pan's Labyrinth
complexly uplifting, and Serenity
was exhilarating. I do
occasionally watch TV series on NetFlix or Hulu, but not frequently
-- hours per month, not per week or day.
Music is all about energy and lyrical content for me. It doesn't
necessarily need to be both smart and kickin' at the same time, but
my favorite music (XTC, Tori Amos, David Bowie, India Arie, Suzanne
Vega, etc.) all have both in the mix.
I'm a sensualist, and food is high on my list. Thai, Indian,
Ethiopian, Mexican, Italian and Japanese are all marvelous. I have
most of 100 spices on my spice rack, and if I use a recipe, it's
more for inspiration than necessity.
