Was in the Peace Corps, have traveled in 50+ countries, lived on 3 continents, speak two foreign languages. I read mostly history and current political/economic analysis (and bedtime reading to younger kid until a few years ago); enjoy poetry. It's NPR, not cable. I still mow my own lawn (but it gets shaggy), work on the house, and do as much car repair as my skills allow. I still have all my hair, most of it still brown. Even my doctor says I look 15 years younger than the calendar indicatess, and I'm willing to put off old age for another decade or two.
Good at raising orphaned baby squirrels, for VA rehab people-- all have made the transition to 'wild' (suburban) outdoor living, and many have come back to beg for treats. It's a hoot, as they're very intelligent, as all bird-feeding folks know.
Also must be fairly good at dad-ing of young humans (important for a single parent): one kid made Eagle scout and is through college, the other won an honorary scholarship at a top college. And both have good friends and 'normal' social lives. A little longer and I can begin to relax!
Movies: Lots of non-mainstream (esp. no blockbusters or musicals)-- like most of Satyajit Ray's films (India), 'Yol' from Turkey in the 70s, and Costa-Gavras' or Pontecorvo's political films (I saw 'The Battle of Algiers' in Casablanca). Gotta add, also, Terry Gilliam's' Brazil'. I'm a sucker for the too-long series: the Matrix, as it posits a universe that's actually a hologram. That's an Idea I poke at once in a while. An occasional really good comedy-- and wish I had outtakes of the best of the Marx Bros., esp. clips of Harpo's and Chico's musicianship
Plenty of PBS-tv , esp. including Antiques Road show (and I have a penchent for flea markets), but not their Brit dramas-- there's not enough time in this life. Off PBS, I get lots of belly laughs from humor built on the foibles of the real world in the Big Bang Theory.
Music: J S Bach, almost all of his works (what a genius), and much of the rest of the classical and romantic period, and Italian opera is especially fine. Indian ragas, and classic jazz (mostly '40s to '70s) -- both have similarities to Bach. Some of almost any other genre-- Afro-pop, country-folk (Tom Russell), -- you name it, but I get to chose within the category. Lots of the folk and rock soundtrack of my decades, but not all of it. I get pickier by the '80s, and later. Can't beat Jackson Browne, for tight, cookin' licks and for the passions of his lyrics- happy or sad. Oh, yeah- and you can't beat Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's duet on 'The Lady Is a Tramp"!
Food: we vegetarians (40+ years in my case) have two strikes against us, and I fouled off another opportunity by having wimpy spice tolerance, so I'm mostly stuck with Indian (or Ethiopian) if I can get it's hot quotient toned down, and Chinese or Thai, avoiding the meats and fish. Or standbys like Italian. Feel free to introduce me to new things, within those strictures--veggie and not spicy.
Also: How/why there are such well-documented cases of children recalling past lives (like the Dalai Lama). U-VA Psychology Prof. Ian Stevenson chronicled thousands in the '60s to '90s- google it to see.
...and, maybe related: Whether evidence for UFOs can be accepted-- some is pretty solid, like the actual "Battle of Los Angeles" event of Feb. 1942, viewed by a million Angelinos for over an hour-- google that, too!
In short, whether 'reality' as we've been taught to understand it is maybe not the whole picture, if existance might turn out to be much more complex than we know, is of great interest to me.
