I appreciate musical and visual arts in a deep and intuitive way, but without maintaining much of a repertoire of what, who, when, and where. Exception: a deeply memorable performance by cellist Lynn Harrell and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, of the Ligeti Concerto for Cello and Orchestra, one Sunday afternoon years ago.
Forgive a neophyte's enthusiasms, but I began going to yoga classes a year ago and am somewhat addicted now, to a diversity of instructors and their styles. Some of this brings back memories of gymnastics circa age five. I credit yoga with a step-function improvement in certain crucial windsurfing skills, and in coordinated functional fitness that machine exercises were not doing much for.
My life path has been atypical, with a significant past interval having been occupied with caregiving for a parent.
Engineer by day, medium/low-skilled windsurfer and occasional paddleboarder for recreation. I experiment in an arcane area of ceramics that exercises a penchant for alchemy.
Current inexplicable interest: experimenting with a narrow aspect of ceramics. Test articles are firing as I write this.
Conversation in quiet settings. Appreciation of the beauty of nature, music and arts. On fortunate occasions, photography.
When committed: being there and doing whatever it takes.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was concurrently fascinating and enlightening, though in a harrowing way.
Classical and early music are my enduring favorites since childhood. In popular music I especially like Lucinda Williams, and liked Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance while they were active. I like Julieta Venegas. Richard Thompson is outstanding live. I like much world music. EBM/aggrotech I like as gym music. Abstract jazz mostly irritates me.
I'll eat anything except stewed tomatoes. Strong preference for fish. I like most ethnic food types. I could almost go veg if I could cheat with fish.
The only TV programs that I watch regularly are CNBC morning business and markets report, Nova, and Frontline.
I especially like foreign language movies with subtitles. Silver Linings Playbook was excellent. Most moving movie in semi-recent memory (appears to be 11 years ago but seems much nearer in time): Rabbit-Proof Fence.
Music, especially classical and early music.
You, somewhere out there.
What happens when liquid fuels become scarce.
If I were to have a child with myself, a DNA testing service says that it would be lactose intolerant, have wet earwax, and have a 73% chance of blue eyes.
