I grew up in Missouri and shuffled between France and the US until arriving in Philly a couple of years ago. I collect postcards and geography dinner plates, cook vegetarian things, talk about community and connection, and spend a lot of time on SEPTA. Cooking dinner is my reset button. Philadelphia is my jam. I don't know words beautiful enough to express how hugely I enjoy the I Love you/I Hate You section of the City Paper: http://citypaper.net/lovehate/.
I've got several books going at once. Main literary squeezes: Nuala O' Faolain, Richard Rodriguez, and Voltaire. I impulse-buy spirituality books I hear about on the radio.
I listen to loads of podcasts. My favorites: This American Life, On Being, Les Pieds sur terre, the Savage Lovecast.
TV isn't my reflex. I go to concerts fairly often. My first was No Doubt during the Tragic Kingdom days. Most recently, I saw Sinkane.
