About drugs...I take no prescription medications, but love my morning coffee, dark chocolate, and an evening glass of red wine....for the lovely tastes, the delightful endorphins and the health benefits.
Finally, I am an egalitarian and a life-long feminist...and have no acceptance or tolerance of racism, sexism or elitism. Life is too sweet and too dear. My Golden Rule: "Kindness is always an option."
I'm not too bad at working with my hands, designing and creating living spaces, fixing stuff, cooking healthy, hand/foot/back rubs, living an intentional and creative lifestyle and being helpful.
Movies: I love good films and good story-telling, particularly character-driven stories about caring people with good values triumphing over adversity (Out of Africa, Good Will Hunting, The Contender, Dances With Wolves, Philadelphia, Searching for Sugar Man, and more recently Spotlight, The Martian, Captain Fantastic, Moonlight, Eagle Huntress...so many lovely stories to be told).
TV: I don't find most commercial television particularly interesting, but there are incredible, moving and visually stunning documentaries currently available (PBS), opening our eyes to ourselves and our planet...and relating some moving human stories and some amazing science.
Music: I appreciate all kinds, but lean towards melodic rock, reggae, dance music and distinctly mellifluous voices: right now...Sam Smith, David Gray, Sade, Sarah McLachlan, Alpha Blondy...and lovely older stuff... Cat Stevens, George Harrison, Bob Marley, Al Green, Peter Tosh, Annie Lennox, Billy Ocean....
Food: Anything healthy and tasty. I lean towards Asian and vegetarian, but rarely find myself saying "I can't eat that" to anything a friend takes the time and thoughtfulness to prepare.
2. Intimacy: conversational, emotional, intellectual and physical.
3. Nature: in all its grandeur, power, wonder and restorative beauty.
4. Sensuality: things that look, smell, sound, taste and feel exquisite.
5. Curiosity: to try to understand what this life is all about...and to ask what it all feels like to you.
6. Unstructured free time: to pursue and delight in 1 thru 5 at a moment's notice...and throughout the day.
(I didn't include Humor...because like air and food and water, it's obviously essential to life.)
