About drugs and "Sometimes" over on the right...I take no prescription pharmaceuticals, but love my morning coffee, my dark chocolate, an evening glass of red wine and an occasional toke.... for the exquisite tastes, the smiles, the delightful endorphins and the fortunate health benefits.
Finally, I am egalitarian and a staunch feminist...and have no acceptance or tolerance of racism, sexism or elitism. Life is too short and too dear....
I'm not too bad at working with my hands, designing and creating living spaces, building and fixing stuff, cooking healthy, massage, being resourceful, living a deliberate and creative lifestyle, and being helpful.
Movies: I delight in good films and excellent story-telling, particularly character-driven story lines about competence, courage and good values triumphing over adversity (Out of Africa, Good Will Hunting, The Contender, Working Girl, Dances With Wolves, Philadelphia, Searching for Sugar Man, and more recently Spotlight, The Martian, Captain Fantastic, Moonlight, Elle, Eagle Huntress...so many lovely stories to be told).
TV: I don't find much quality in commercial television, but there are incredible, moving and visually stunning documentaries currently available (PBS), opening our eyes to ourselves and our planet...and telling some heroic, human stories.
Music: What a lovely aspect of life. I like all kinds, but lean towards melodic rock, reggae, dance music and distinctly beautiful 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 appreciate almost 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 find out what all this 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 as much as I can stand....
(I didn't include my sense of humor...because I'll never be with out that...no matter what.)
Oh, and let's not forget a sense of humor and a sense of wonder, which are both very attractive and fundamental necessities of life...along with being great fun.
