Biographical and historical accounts being the genres that I have been interested in from the beginning and I do not know what got me started on that path.. The first person of interest that I discovered as a young person was Alexander Hamilton (now that I think about it..perhaps the librarian at the White Branch Library that I had a crush on during those early years of childhood)..and then of course there was some fiction such as the "Moffat Family" by Eleanor Estes.. (Rufus really struck a chord with me for life) However..since that time I came to know the work of Ron Chernow and his fascination with Hamilton which led me to learn a great deal more about Alexander's life.. and the impact that he had on this country and others. Robert Caro, William Manchester, Roy Jenkins, David Nasaw, Amos Elon, Niall Ferguson, David McCullough and Fritz Stern are but a few of the others that are my favorite authors. There are others that will go unmentioned with regards to fiction ...both domestic and foreign that I have come to enjoy.
To film.... I enjoy silent, black and white...to color and three dimensional films to a degree...foreign and domestic....really find the recent super hero trend somewhat repulsive and mindless.. Music well... I have a special place in my heart for popular music starting in the twenties and ending...say in the fifties... And then of course..we know the change that occurred...from that point forward. Which I find myself listening to pretty much while driving on road trips...brings back the days of being a vagabond.. But in and around town...I try and listen to either jazz or classical ... Ethnic and or cultural music and their respective singers are something that I enjoy listening to.... During the Xmas season I especially like listening to Baroque.. It must be the MacLaine effect in me for some reason I feel very connected to that period of time...in what capacity...who knows..but its there...
And food...well I 'd have to say that I have had the opportunity and pleasure of eating a good many different foods that have been prepared and served in different countries that I came to enjoy within a domestic setting which to me is and was the ultimate in the tasting experience.. I found Indian food very much to my liking... While living there..I found that I didn't miss meat at all a matter of fact..did not give it a thought.. Not to say that I haven't had some unique and memorable eating experiences in bazaars, markets, vendors on the road or in the streets of many different countries..
An instance...a rather unfortunate one...albeit.. In Ghazni where I was eating a lamb stew, I bit down on a piece of meat that still had a bone part within ..caused a dental problem which led me to experiencing Afghan dentistry where at that time ...anesthetics of any kind probably existed...but were not in use for the average person.. Thankfully beforehand...I medicated myself by smoking some opium...which helped a great deal...
With regards to present day...the food that is being put out by people within Seattle and Portland eateries...(Stumbling Goat and Veritable Quandary are two of my favorites respectively) along with some of the food trucks which are amazing and others beyond belief..
I especially admire any and all of them for pursuing a passion for what they enjoy doing and it shows in the food that they provide for their clientele along with providing a livelihood for themselves and their families..which I am entirely in favor of and celebrate their entrepreneurial spirit.. Its a wonderful thing..and happy to be a part..of that adventure..with them
