Why music? It was clear from the time I was 5 years old, only it took a considerable amount of time to convince myself this was indeed the path... and as a result the flood gates have opened. The lesson learned is not to delay what we regard as truth in every fiber of our being. The way to the water can be through any and all creation. The point is, we are each the creation (!)... playing an essential part in helping one another move beyond the energies on this planet that no longer serve us.
"I think music is the one spiritual force in our lives that we have access to. There are so many other spiritual avenues that our closed off to us, and music still has that." - Sting

I have a few impressions in my back pocket and have been known to make up characters, only to set them loose in the most ridiculous manner imaginable.
Ah yes, and let's not forget dental hygiene.

TV: More often than not I find myself watching it vicariously through others, however the new Cosmos is a breath of fresh air!
Food: Freshness, balance, simplicity... That basically means Italy. Yes, I'd like to eat the whole country of Italy. I love to indulge in great Indian, Mexian (especially Oaxacan), Thai and Vietnamese fare. Brunch at French bistro? Yes and yes!
