I am torn between two dreams that I see as conflicting. On one hand, I'd love to realize my full potential artistically and be able to share my music with the world, making enough money with it to tour the country with my best friends, learning and growing. On the other hand, I'd love to eventually settle down and have a family, preferably on a farm or some place where I'd have plenty of space to provide food for my kids, though close enough to be able to see my family. Nothing interests me more than living a life feeling truly connected to this earth and the people on it, and animal husbandry seems like the ideal job to fulfill that spirit, even though I'm not totally convinced I'm up for it yet... I'd love to try though!
Lately I've been very interested in nonfiction, especially books on nutrition and our food system. I loved The Omnivore's Dilemma (Michael Pollan), Good Calories, Bad Calories (Gary Taubes); and Nutrition and Physical Degeneration (Weston Price). I respect the works of Milton Friedman, Ron Paul (I know, politics...) and other advocates for true capitalism. Also Food of the Gods (Terrence McKenna), Grow Your Own Drugs (James Wong), Higher Education? (Andrew Hacker), fiction: Life of Pi (Yann Martel), C.S. Lewis, Shel Silverstein, Theodor Seuss Geisel, Gary Paulsen
"History suggests only that capitalism is a necessary condition for political freedom. Clearly it is not a sufficient condition."
So many great movies out there... a few favs:
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Big Lebowski
A Clockwork Orange
PBS & BBC Documentaries
Addicted to Plastic
The World According to Monsanto
The Money Masters
American Drug War

I don't watch a lot of TV, but when I do I love:
The Colbert Report
I stray toward the esoteric stuff but I'll listen to just about anything and love finding new music. I tend to enjoy a lot of technical music and think music can speak louder than words... but some of the best music is the simplest. I'm gonna try and keep this short.
Between the Buried and Me
Maps and Atlases
A Perfect Circle
The Mars Volta
Lamb of God
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Explosions in the Sky
FOOD & DRINK
I love to eat! Breakfast makes me smile. Eggs and bacon are tough to beat. Coconuts! Eggplant parmesan! Spicy foods! Not a big fan of red meat usually. I love chicken. Of course there are the comfort foods I try and pretend I don't love like spaghetti, pizza, ice cream, or even a bowl of sugary cereal.
I love to cook, even though I'm not very good at it. At least it feels like I'm constantly improving! I cook most of my food and don't eat a lot of fast food, processed junk, etc. Nutrition is important to me and that means there's a whole lot of food I choose not to eat, which is kinda tough but so worth it! I don't eat grains, starches, white flour or refined sugar and frankly I've never felt better.
For drinks I LOVE yerba mate, it's the best if you can handle the strong grassy taste. I love it so much it makes me want to visit South America! A good cup of coffee is fantastic, but I try to drink it in moderation. I like some other herbal teas too, but mostly I drink a lot of water. Boring, I know.
As far as alcohol goes I don't drink too much, but when I do I usually go for a mixed drink or a shot over a beer. I love gin & tonic, rum & coke, & tequila. If I reach for a beer it's usually a pale ale or IPA.
2: My friends. I don't have a ton of friends, but I am super close with the ones I have, I've known them for years, and wouldn't trade them for the world!
3: Love. The most empowering and positive emotion, nothing keeps us connected and content like love does, platonic or otherwise.
4: Nature. It's so easy to feel disconnected from the natural world, and I think many of us yearn to rediscover that connection. I love being outside, going to parks and beaches, and breathing the fresh air.
5: Dogs. It's amazing that we have these domesticated companions to live with and keep us sane. Dogs are always in the moment, and remind us of the value of each and every day, and the importance of play!
6: Coconuts. Yes, coconuts. My favorite fruit, nut, and vegetable, a truly impressive plant that not only serves as food but has so many remarkable healing abilities. Yep... I'm weird.
The future of this country, "politics"-- Yes, I am interested in politics, sorry :P. It seems like atrophy has become so commonplace in our generation, and I truly think this is unfortunate. This country was founded by rebels fighting for true freedom, and to me it's a shame that we have such a cushy lifestyle we're allowed to take it all for granted. I'm not fully invested in politics myself, but I know where I stand and I'm always interested to hear from others on a lot of issues, from military spending to the economy to HEW (Health/Education/Welfare). It should be easier to have these discussions.
Our current food system and resultant lifestyle-- I am truly concerned about the state of our food industry. The amount of chemicals we consume, the government subsidization of grain and other poor sources of calories, the mislabeling and underhanded ploys of top-tier business executives-- it's truly shameful. As far as I'm concerned, the concentration of the food supply represents a huge threat to our well-being, and I find myself doing more and more to support local farming and food production, even dabbling in it myself whenever possible.
The health and welfare of my family and friends!-- It hurts to even think about losing the people I truly love, depend on, and care about most. Unfortunately it's a part of life, and I know I will move on and grow, but I can't help but worry about it from time to time.
I find it WAY too easy to worry, so I try to maintain a positive attitude. It's different than being in denial, if only by a slight margin ;D. It's tough to let go... but I'm working on it.
