Susceptible to flattery.
Being exposed. Being inspired.
I'm huge history lover when it comes to watching and reading. Aware and have opines of international and domestic happenings.
Always something in the reading rotation. Some all time favs: Shogun Saga. Count of Monte Cristo. Game of Thrones. The Alchemist. Dracula. Into Thin Air. Shadow Divers. Devil in a White City.
I have a smart T.V. I think it's smarter than my phone. Or maybe less complicated and more introverted? Ha! Good Shows - yes. Movies - often. Documentaries - always.
Love music, see a ton of it live and the genres run the gamut. A few videos below I dig (the songs are strong too):
Sebastien Tellier - La Ritournelle: https://vimeo.com/1516056
The Foals - My Number: https://vimeo.com/58447276
Lee Fields - Faithful Man:
Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate - Wonamati:
EODM - I want you so hard:
Bon Iver - Skinny Love (Live at The Greek Berkeley):
1. The spirit of the people around the world.
2. Music and the dance floor.
3. Camera ( with my fish-eye).
4. Ghost stories.
5. Exploring History.
6. Possibilities. Friendship (includes Family - duh). Expression. Creativity. Love. Touch. Hope. Collaborations.
14. Toes in the sand. Hammocks in the shade. Snow in my beard.
17. Rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains - oh my!
21. Kitchens or places to cook
You believe in the Mark Manson philosophy of F* Yes or F* No (ask googles).

You agree it is all about chemistry.
