My vocation allows me half the year to play. When given an opportunity I enjoy hiking around Durango & Silverton. Hot springs are a great passtime, too. Spending time listening to live music is always fun. My travel has been mainly in North America but I am looking forward to expanding my horizons :)
The list of music I like is long (and should begin w/Van Morrison). The last concert I went to was Marcia Ball (and I danced most of the time!) The range is wide. As I am Texan I am partial to Lyle Lovett, Flatlanders, and have a special place in my heart for Roy Orbison. Add in the Traveling Wilburys now :) Yes, I love many things about John Lennon but George was my favorite Beatle. Los Lobos and Santana are at the top of a list of Hispanic artists I enjoy listening to. There is a long list of female recording artists I appreciate: Bonnie Raitt, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams are a few I've seen in concert. I love Aretha Franklin and too many more to mention. To be honest, I am an ol' hippie at heart.
The last movie I saw at the theatre was "42" before that it was "Skyfall" (James Bond), and "Lincoln." I loved "Hugo," "Wall-E," and almost anything with Jackie Chan. I rent dvds and recently enjoyed "Jack Reacher", "Silver Linings", "Argo," & "Zero Dark 30." I will admit seeing "Django" and found it disturbing but necessary.
Shows: John Stewart, Sunday Morning, Face the Nation...and (I don't watch much t.v.) Series I've enjoyed: Deadwood, Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, World Cup (now that is a series!)
Food: I'm from El Paso where there is perhaps some of the yummiest Mexican food (I am entitled to my opinion) so I claim justifiable snobbishness here (call me choosey about my Mexican food.) I will eat almost anything...but I do appreciate good food (and that is losely defined!) The local, seasonal, and organic foods are my favorite.
Books: I am currently reading: The Spirituality of Imperfection.
Hey, about books, I have to mention how I appreciate James Joyce and his stream-of-consciousness novel ;-) Genius! Brilliant!
