But until that happens we've gotta try, right?
I'm happiest around good people being themselves. Making plans, doing something new, taking chances, being vulnerable.
TV: anything witty and well written; Archer, Arrested Development, Mad Men, etc
For film- my favorites are old film noir and spagetti westerns. Quentin Tarantino. Wes Anderson. I love Christopher Walken, despite the innumerable terrible movies in which he appears. I'm a little bit style over substance when it comes to movies.
And for words: anything by Vonnegut, Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Stranger... Lord of the Rings. I recently enjoyed Cormac McCarthy's The Road, although its a bit bleak to be a favorite. (Kerouac's is lovely too, but it makes me want to quit my job and become a vagabond. Dangerous literature) Really, anything that opens my mind in some way. On a related note: looking for thought-provoking fiction. Recommendations?
I'm trying to find that state again. I don't know if it will be in art, or music, or in some other meaningful project, but I'm committed to getting there.
Or if you just need to let me know my shoe is untied
