Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Most movies but horror films. I <3 Huckabees, Pi, Little Miss Sunshine, quirky, existential comedy, documentaries about nature and human potentials, smart action and adventure films. If it's done well, and can get me thinking or laughing, I'll probably want to watch it.

Music: Yes, please. With an extra helping of funk.

Books: Faves: Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy-or anything by Douglas Adams, Power V. Force, I mostly read nonfiction, but I do love a good novel from time to time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Amazing: I keep breathing without even trying! It's like it's automatic or something. Whew!
Really, though, I volunteered at an arts summer camp for "troubled" youth one time, and it was a week long transcendent experience. Frickin' WOW!

Teach, Learn, Share

I know some fun words. I like cooperative community jams and freestyle rap, but I don't get the chance to do it much. I also do Reiki, and am happy to share energy work with folks.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I just like to be real with real people.
