Books, yes, so many; usually I have several in progress at any
given time in a myriad of subjects, fiction and non. Hemingway,
Markus Zusak, David James Duncan to name a few authors... short
stories are also in the queue; I enjoy the writing of Etgar Keret
and often find pure and utter joy in the work of those who have
contributed to This American Life.
My favorite films are those such as Eternal Sunshine of Spotless
Mind, Cool Hand Luke, The Hudsucker Proxy, Being John Malcovich,
As for music, currently I find that I can't get enough of Jolie
Holland, Sufjan Stevens, Charles Mingus, Greg Brown and Nina
Simone. Every year I come away from Pickathon in love with a new
band; four years ago it was Breathe Owl Breathe, three years ago it
was Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, two years ago, Lake Street
Dive, and last year the Cactus Blossoms.
I have a Pandora station dedicated to Sufjan Stevens which feels
I love to cook and I look forward to it as a nightly ritual that
helps me to unwind from the stresses of any given day.
I have been in a bit of a salad mania of late, but I love to
experiment and will try anything, especially if I can procure the
ingredients locally. I've been gluten free for six years (of
dietary necessity, not fashion) and have begun to enjoy the
challenge and rewards of making tasty gluten free fare.
