I do not go to movies often but when I saw I Am everyone applauded
and then a lady stands up and says "group hug!" is my kind of
movie! I highly recommend it! ck it out at iamthedoc.com.
Books are a little funny for me. I read more than one at a time.
Often they are considered "work related." But, since I love what I
do I really like to learn more about it. I love learning how to
heal myself and others. So, often it is a combo of diet, food
related books, Thich Nhat Hanh, The Alchemist, Pranic Healing etc.
I love biographies also. Somehow Mae West's biography made its way
to my shelf. I have no idea where it came from.
When I was a kid I thought I would read every biography in the
library. I gave it a good shot...then we moved and the library was
larger...I kind of gave up that dream...;)
I recently read Augusteen Burroughs "How to" book fun read. Gave me
reason to pause.
I enjoy TED talk quite a bit. 15 minutes is about all I have or
want and I love learning new things.
I saw one recently with a woman who spoke of all she ever needed to
know she learned in a mental health hospital. It was an amazingly
happy tale. And since I work a few shifts in a mental health
hospital it helped shed some light on what I do.
Thai food is a favorite. I pretty much eat vegetables and a small
amount of protein. Preferring locally grown, organic food grown
with love. Yes, I can taste and feel the difference!!
I love to cook but get bored with my same old stuff. Funny how that
is. When I have a partner I have enjoyed sharing kitchen duties and
spicing up the same old thing with the synergy of 2.
I love being able to call home figure out what to stop and get and
showing up and being able to mutually nurture each other. I am a
wonder sous chef.
Music..I seem to have a think I have gone thru a phase in the last
while of girls and guitars, Catie Curtis, Sophie B Hawkins
My latest purchase was Katy Perry...no guitar really but a lot of
fun happy lyrics. I was on my way to Seattle and was in Starbucks
and it jumped into my hand. It has lived in my CD player in my car
ever since. So, whenever NPR gets too sad and nothing on radio is
hitting the right spot- Katy being Katy is great!
For true music snobs she is a bit techno. But, indulging in just
plain ol' fun to sing to is good by me!
TV-dare I admit that I do have a few favorite shows I love,
Greys Anatomy, lots of stuff on History and the Biography channels.
I still have not caught up on the new Arrested Development.
There is often a lot more to people than meets the eye.
I do not really have TV any more but I do indulge in a most nights
viewing of something on Netflix. I pick a series and make my way
I do not like violence or pain even if righteous. I enjoy happy.
Not to say everything on Greys Anatomy is happy. But, it mostly
circles back around to that.
I was enjoying Weeds until a few seasons in and they were traveling
to Mexico and too much stress...
No horror ever. I am a sensitive soul. I like to practice watching
people being sweet to each other.
