I enjoy well-crafted movies that depict the depth of human nature.
These movies are often foreign such as Departures, Incendies,
Babette's Feast, The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, or Lovers of
the Arctic Circle. And of course, there are the American greats
like Sophie's Choice, The Pianist, The Shawshank Redemption,
Schindler's List, etc. Sweeping cinematography like the English
Patient or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon captures my imagination
too. And I love great title songs like John Williams' theme from
Schindler's List or Ennio Morricone's Gabriel's Oboe from The
Mission. Movies that keep me wondering like Inception and Sixth
Sense hold my attention.
I love most all types of music and have a vast CD collection.
Classical, World, and Jazz/Blues are the three genres I listen to
most often. It's probably easier for me to say what I don't care
for: music that is atonal--doesn't matter if it's Schoenberg or
I read daily--mostly things of a spiritual nature. Love Rumi. I
also enjoy great writers like Anne Lamott, Hemingway, Isabel
Allende, and Walt Whitman to name a few. I usually have three or
four books going at the same time to satisfy whatever mood I am in.
Currently reading "A Journey to Oneness" by Rasha, re-reading
Patanjali's "Yoga Sutras", "Bonk" by Mary Roach, and "Fall of
Giants" by Ken Follett.
I support the arts and am a patron of the Seattle Art Museum and
have season tickets to the Seattle Opera.
