I hope to continue teaching for the medium-term, living in several different cultures and countries, in order to learn more about myself and the world.
Eventually, I hope to return to America or to another suitable culture for myself and pursue a career in the human services or in academia.
I am wide-open right now. To life. To experiences. To new paths.
I love Stanley Kubrick and George Romero. Some recent wonderful films I've seen: Happiness, Swingers, No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, Juno, The Departed, Inception.
I love David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop. I love Neutral Milk Hotel, The Apples in Stereo, and The Mountain Goats. I love the Decemberists, Belle and Sebastian, and the Long Winters. I love Mirah, Kimya Dawson, and the Blow. I love Daft Punk, Air, and YACHT. I love Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, and Frank Zappa. I am just beginning to explore Husker Du. She lifted her arms and she floated away!
I'm formerly vegetarian. I love Indian food, Vietnamese food, the occasional fish--especially sashimi--Thai food, and Mexican food. And yes, horchata. Chinese food is pretty rad, too.
and the baby and Kathleen
and the sun is a flame-white disc
in silken mists
above shining trees,--
if I in my north room
dance naked, grotesquely
before my mirror
waving my shirt round my head
and singing softly to myself:
"I am lonely, lonely.
I was born to be lonely,
I am best so!"
If I admire my arms, my face,
my shoulders, flanks, buttocks
again the yellow drawn shades,--
Who shall say I am not
the happy genius of my household?
