My favorite book of all time: The Book of Life by J. Krishnamurti.

response to the daily meditations.

Amores Perros, El Callejon de Los Millagros, Planet of the Apes,

by Northwest, Grease, Ferris Bueller's Day Off
*Notice, I really prefer foreign/classic films. I feel that they
rise about the shallow superficiality of current Hollywood
Favorite music: Most classical music, Horace Silver, Miles Davis,
Jim Brickman, Josh Groban, Billy Joel, Phil Collins, 17 Hippies,
E-Type, Eiffel 65/Gabry Ponte, Idan Raichel Project, Klezmer/Middle

Orchestra (ELO), and a lot more!
Food: I am willing to try almost anything. In particular I love
Mediterranean food, a good juicy hamburger, Chipotle burritos,
fresh fruits and vegetables from local/farmers markets, Indian
food, most European cuisines.
