I dance passionately, and love all movement - whether a good long meditative swim, cycle or hike, yoga session. And yes, physical intimacy, oh, yes.
I love being creative with music and healing. And climbing trees when I get the chance.
Sting, Joni Mitchell, Beatles. Tchaikovsky. 70s rock, Jazz (esp swing), tribal world beats that take my feet to frenzy. The deep harmonies of chorale music (esp Faure), some folk - and most anything with devotional content. I play/sing a bunch of different stuff, and have just started "playing well with others".
I've seen too few good movies. Loved What dreams May Come, English Patient, Contact, Princess Bride, Microcosmos (bugs up way close!), Never owned a TV yet, but I know there are worthwhile shows to watch some day. Really liked the first 2/3 of Matrix 1, until it was just perpetual fight scenes (yawn).
Most memorable recent books -Musicophelia (a neurologist writes about music and the brain), The Brain That Changes Itself and One River (and anything else that Wade Davis does) - which is ethnobotanically-oriented travels around tropical America - did I say I want to explore Amazonia some, soon!?) Love reading Kingsolver, a good historical or dramatic fiction. Words rock! Rumi, Hafiz, Rilke, EE Cummings. Italo Calvino. Dianne Ackerman. Naruda. Marge Piercey's 'Woman on the Edge of Time', and 'He, She and It'. Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Still curious why feminist utopian novels caught my attention for so long.
I really enjoy good food! Prefer local and organic and aspire to be live-foods/vegan. My diet is generally eat what ever and whenever I can (and try to keep the sugar component as low as possible). Seldom eat red meat. And did I say I'm an excellent cook?
I have hedonistic tendencies that present in my enjoyment of food (and most anywhere else...). Ethnically, I love Thai and Indonesian most. Love cooking a fresh filet of wild salmon to perfection.
How many r that?
finding pleasure. My growing 'edge'. Where to find the best chocolate (dark, of course), and the next awesome adventure/travel.
