Laps in the pool
Talking, presenting, debating
Workin' in the garden
Asking questions and listening closely
Visibly blushing if teased accurately
Planning to make art, and failing to make time to try.
Small Talk (which everyone says they hate, but seem delighted by if done with a bit of wit and creativity. Am I brightening someone's day? Or are you all internally gagging at my antics in lineups, coffee shops, elevators and doorways everywhere? :-P )
Books: J Franzen's "The Corrections", P Quarrington's "Galveston", David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas", C Ryan's "Sex at Dawn", Dawkin's "The God Delusion", P deWitt's "The Sisters Brothers", Emily Mandel's "Station Eleven", Tolle's "The Power of Now" ... this list could go on forever and changes annually.
Movies: Pulp Fiction, The Fifth Element, Alien, Ma vie en Rose, Dr. Strangelove, Pan's Labyrinth, Amelie (again, etc etc)
Food: Green smoothies, mostly anything Mexican, freshly caught fish, salad, more salad, and fruit. Really, just about all non-processed food.
Music: Tame Impala, Radiohead, Tiga, Young Galaxy, Sigur Ros, Neko Case, MIA, Goldfrapp, Disclosure, Beck, Caribou and much, much more.
