I am an old soul.
My heart is in the right place.
I think my greatest asset is my integrity.
Movies -- The Bourne Trilogy, Crimson Tide, Downhill Racer, Volver, The Matador's Mistress, C.A.R.C.A., Thirteen Days, Jeremiah Johnson (anything with Robert Redford), The Motorcycle Diaries.
Shows - MI-5, IT Crowd, 30 Rock, Studio Sixty on the Sunset Strip, NOVA, Frontline, Parks and Rec, This American Life.
Food -- I haven't met much food that I don't like. I cook mexican food and some french food. Thai food has a lot of appeal to me, but so does a good steak and a bottle of red wine. Dried meat and corn soup is alright too -- I am flexible.
2. A place to feel at home
3. A connection to the natural world
5. Good ideas
and 6. Truthful literature. For example, here is a piece by Andy Martin which I find particularly truthful:
"The simple goal of all skiing is to attain divinity: to achieve that god-like state in which all the differences between self and snow, the skier and the skied, melt and fade away in the sun to leave nothing but a sense of pure being."
