I can learn to do anything. Time is my only limit. It takes time to master a craft, but I can figure out how to squeak by quickly. Stone, wood, metal, and glass, all become plastic in skilled hands. When I immerse myself in a technical problem, I can get out of my way and create.
I think about epic projects I have ahead of me and I sigh. I will match my curiosity against anybodies. My five year plan includes doing a bit of genetic engineering in the garage. I think I have something to contribute.
I like to explore the mind body relationship. I took a yoga class to meet girls, but I would feel inauthentic, if I didn't try to understand the discipline. So I made peace with my dan tien and squeegeed my third eye. By the end of class, I was in the moment. I understood desirelessness, so I didn't really have it in me to take many shots. I just continued the flow. Needless to say, women remained uninterested, but I figured out a way to heal and understand my body. I lost weight and got active. I haven't been able to run, bike, lift, and climb like this in years. I am really jazzing on it.
The last really good novel I read was Between the River and the Bridge, by Craig Ferguson, the talk show host. Profane and sacred in a way I haven't seen before. A very skilled story teller.
Gary Wills, Papal sin. The guy is brilliant. This is one of the most insightful books into the nature of authority. I saw him call the tea party a bunch of racists on the Colbert Report, and Colbert didn't call him on it. He is a moral and intellectual heavyweight.
Calvin and Hobbes, I have a son, and he has Calvin in him. I am still trying to get him interested in the strip. He likes the ones with the baby sitter.
Freakonomics was an important book for me. I started to write my own text on economics, which is called Economics, It's not about the money. It will show what homo economis does and feels.
I heard a marathon of Joe Strummer's London Calling radio show. I used to dismiss so much really good music until Joe opened my eyes. He made these during his Mescaleroes years, which were great. Joe is as close as I get to having a hero, and these radio shows are everything I want to teach my kids about diversity, globalism, and race.
Cooking with Jacques and Julia. This is the book which taught me how to cook. They play good French chef/ bad French chef in it. Usually Julia is the voice for tradition. I killed every year with her deconstructed turkey. They taught me foams, sauces, cooking meat, curing meat, dessert, bread, stock, and soup. Another book I used was Rick Bayless, The Mexican Kitchen. I never did much with the later chapters, but the first chapter on the essential sauces, I must have read and used a hundred times. I like mashing cultures when cooking.
I should mention Tom Waits. I fell in love listening to Tom Waits and I fell out of love listening to Tom Waits and I hope to do it all again listening to Tom Waits. I know there are those out there that like his early work better, and you are wrong. Not even close. He gets more interesting with age. I like that his artistic turning point was when he got married.
