Cooking a vibrant Italian meal and serving it with a soul-stirring wine

I have a few impressions in my back pocket and have been known to make up characters, only to set them loose in the most ridiculous manner imaginable.

Ah yes, and let's not forget dental hygiene.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes-Smile-Voice-Other
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A few poets: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Pablo Neruda, William Stafford, Naomi Shihab Nye, Joni Mitchell

A few movies: Kiss of the Spider Woman, Le Hérisson, Blade Runner, 8 1/2 Women (not to be confused with Fellini's 8 1/2, but that's a great film too), Woody Allen, Coen Brothers, Kubrick, Godard, and too many others to stuff into this column.

A bit more music: Peter Gabriel, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Florence + the Machine, Frank Zappa, Yes, King Crimson, Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, Daniel Lanois, The Cure, Hans Zimmer, Bon Iver, Bjork, The Meters, Herbie Hancock, Prince, Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Sun Ra, Al di Meola, Astor Piazzola, Pat Metheny, Bruce Hornsby, Alexis Weissenberg, Serge Gainsbourg, Albert Marcœur, Billie Holiday with Lester Young, Shirley Horn with Charlie Haden, and .... !!. Music is like breathing for me, and so it feels funny trying to pick a favorite anything.

TV: More often than not I find myself watching it vicariously through others, however the new Cosmos is a breath of fresh air!

Food: Freshness, balance, simplicity... That basically means Italy. Yes, I'd like to eat the whole country of Italy. I love to indulge in great Indian, Mexian (especially Oaxacan), Thai and Vietnamese fare. Brunch at French bistro? Yes and yes!
The six things I could never do without
Good vibes, Fantasies, Honesty, Laughing, Eating well, Italian wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I might capitalize on the quality of my time while still relatively young on this planet. I am shamelessly following my bliss so that in turn I may simply give it back.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not playing a gig then likely it's getting together with friends, enjoying fine food and beverage, or just being mellow and unraveling from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have trouble peeing when people talk.
You should message me if
You are curious and this makes sense.
