I find that a good way to start my days...
When I'm not doing that I travel to Morocco or Mexico looking for inspiration and getting things made for work.
Oh, and I get to the States a couple of times a year too...
Dealing with a crisis.
Books: most anything by Cormac McCarthy or Hunter S. Thompson. And then there's Vonnegut, Hitchens.
TV: I'm into the Discovery Channel, Adventure Time (its just so trippy)
I also love interior and graphic design from the 1970's
As far as food goes...Spain has a lot of great things and then I'm really close to France so I get to try their stuff as well.
A Lap Pool
On occasion I find myself literally in the middle of nowhere here on this peninsula, mixing it up with the locals in some tiny pueblo.
