architecture, & music. Some faves: Borges, Bukowski, Robertson Davies, Donne, Fuentes, Jeffers, Kinnell, Larkin, Milosz, Mistral, Nabokov, Naipaul, Szymborska, Updike, and Whitman, for starters. I read several book reviews to keep up on worldwide intellectual life.
Art: I love having art in my house, so I'm a patron--I buy it.
Movies: Mostly off-beat, old classics, documentaries, animation, and contemporary indies with occasional forays into Hollywood-land. Victor Erice's film El Sur (1983) still haunts me. I can't watch horror-suspense or seriously violent stuff.
Shows: TV? Not very much. Some news and documentaries. Occasional PBS mystery. Also, some live theater.
Music: Pretty eclectic--Jazz, Classical, Blues, Folk, Rock, "World", and some old C&W-bluegrass-string band.
Food: Omnivorous--from diners to various ethnic eateries. When I travel I seek out local places.
The evolution of humanity.
A lover as best friend.
My ancestors--who were they, where did they live, what did they do?
