Authors: the philosopher Ken Wilber and futurist Alvin Toffler.
Also I read "New York" and "London" by Edward Rutherfurd, which is
historical fiction. Short stories of science fiction/fantasy. I
give away copies of The Secret (Rhonda Byrne) to those who are
ready to become a little more empowered. Washington Irving...it
feels like he's written just for me--content, tone, mood, diction.
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortensen reflects a great deal of my own
passions and values. And I have common bonds with Robert Louis
Stevenson, which makes his works that much more enjoyable.
Movies: I don't laud any particular movie, but a random sample
includes the Sergio Leone triologies, Disney, solid action flicks
(Bourne Identity, Batman Begins, etc., not the shoot-em-up kind),
Christmas movies galore (when appropriate), thinkers (Eternal
Sunshine for the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich). Movies that
are just well done, regardless of content.
TV: Sundays are NFL days. MLB isn't bad either.
I'd rather spend my time doing something more productive than
Movies: The great ones still move me, whether it's jazz or
classical. And electronic also has found a special place (though
definitely different from the others) in my ears.
Food: I've been doing the whole gluten-free/dairy-free thing for
awhile now. I've developed an appreciation for some good barbecue,
and I enjoy Japanese food, Jewish food, comfort food, among others.
Can't quite develop a taste for Indian food for some reason.
