Thinking is so last century. I need to go to a new place, where the filters of time and space (and the resultant causality) don't limit us to the harsh If/Then model of western civilization. The Be world. I want to hang in the Be world. Which sounds a little nuts, but what the hell. The Do world is so filled with static and chaos and warped desires, treadmills leading nowhere. As my little nieces would giggle, "Chillax, dude!"
People notice my sense of humor, but they are wrong to notice it, usually it's just my active mind pondering this or that outside of ordinary bounds, so they say, "Man you are so funny!" when I'm not being funny at all.
A Strange Place to Meet & Fight Club. And lately The English Patient.
The Decemberists & Velvet Underground. And lately Carla Bruni. Leonard Cohen's The Future - wow.
Fruit & Beer (my great grandmother the bootlegger fed my mother beer and bananas when she was a toddler - it runs in the family). And lately protein shakes. No, not the old people kind, the weightlifter kind.

3. Collaboration: I can't do it alone.
4. Colors. B&W works for movies and photos, but I wouldn't want it as a permanent condition.
5. Surprises. I guess I mean a confounding of expectations, and while expectations seem to be an anchor, a result of closed mindedness, without some expectations there can never be surprises, so I accept my closed mindedness.
6. Optimism. I mean, geez, imagine life without that?
If you believe that the potential of the human individual is infinite (Tilman)
If you believe that play, passion, creativity, learning, generosity, kindness and deadly yet flavorful spice are the ingredients for a life well lived.
