So where do I begin.
Well, my motto comes from Peter Gabriel: "So Much Larger Than Life!"
Loves to laugh, loves to enjoy other people, loves to see the world, and loves to learn new things.
We're struggling, but truthfully we're together and making it. Our girls are doing well in school and our friends are growing along with us.
I'm an info geek big time! I love to find out things about the world and life via the computer and books. I think learning is the greatest strength in the world.
Bren: You REALLY like Dave Mathews.
Movies: Where do I begin? My favorite all time is Schindler's List! We also love the Matrix, LOTR, Harry Potter, James Bond, lots fo comedies, drama, thrillers (Hitchcock), etc. to measure. One of my favorite movies I enjoy the most is "Enter the Void". One of the most provocative movies I've ever seen. The opening scene may cause seizures to the faint of hard, but truthfully a very artful movie. One of my favorite documentaries is "Lord Save Us From Your Followers". Really breaks down the whole faith issues.
Music: From the 50s to the present (so long as people who can make music with instruments can make music is a priority) we enjoy it. Loves dance music, enjoy Goth and Hard Rock,etc. Not a huge country fan, but respect good writing and talent. Gospel and CCM too (not the current crop, the old kind).
Travel: Give us the money and means we'll find a way to get there. Right now we're hoping to somehow visit some bed and breakfast close to home or in the tri state area.
Bren: Nature, music, animals, art, friends, and family.
Also think about how life has changed so much in 40 years. It seemed so simple without the blogs, twitter, computer, etc. We had to talk to each other personally; we had to call in phone booths and actually talk to each other at dinner tables. There was no need to eat out but we had to cook at home so we can all sit at the dinner table to eat. Plus, I miss game night with the family. I don't know about others, but I remember playing Trouble, King's in the Corner, or Dominos till 3am on the weekend during a hot summer in Cleveland.
For Bren, she's disgusted how developed everything in her home town of Beavercreek. She told me how she'd bike across farm fields and neighborhoods before they turned it into condos, malls, and strip malls.
I guess we think about the not yet. What will this world looks like or become after we are old and gray? Will we enjoy nature, animals and our environment or will we be struggling to get a breath of air? God only knows.
