I try to follow the three basic tenants laid out by the great philosopher Tsung Tzu:
1. Each day leads to another. As surely as the sun will set on one day or opportunity it will surely rise again on the next.
2. Compassion is a sign of great strength. It takes great strength to carry yourself and lift up another as well. To laugh at or look down on compassion is to demonstrate vanity, one of mans greatest weaknesses.
3. B!tches be crazy
Music..pretty diverse array but I will say I prefer people who can actually play instruments. On my playlist right now...Dave Matthews band, Mumford and sons, pearl jam, john mayer, coldplay, ray Charles, van Morrison, Eric Clapton, bb king, Gavin degraw, Jonny lang, ray lamontagne, the band, Steve winwood, audioslave, the avett brothers, daft punk, gov't mule, passenger, and, at the the time that I'm writing this, tab Benoit.
Food...all kinds. I go to a lot of different restaurants, frequently consult Baltimore magazine etc to find new places and probably spend far too much money on this hobby!
