Muses and inspiration in my life are mostly writers and film makers.
I'm also passionate about music: classical, even opera, jazz, blues, alternative, rock, punk, ambient, electronica, and dub/reggae. Mix CDs are awesome. New music all kinds of cultural and music especially drumming I love!
Little things that bring me happiness are antiques, thrift store finds, books, CDs (mix) or music in general. I also love charms, cheap jewelry, imported like street market jewelry and unusual local items such as souvenirs. I enjoy simple things like stickers, kawaii, sanrio, and san-x, pens, childish toys like finger paints and and dancing and going to the beach and digging naked toes into the warm sand.
Chocolates, truffles, sweet sugary things, who can resist?
Recycled or polished glass along the shore and seashells.
Raw and tumbled stones have been speaking to me lately! Treasures. Absolute, often free treasure.
I love watching the birds and waves crashing for hours at the beach or shore.
I love libraries with free books and smells of little kids running around and arguments about free speech or whatever silly stupid things we argue about that aren't going to change or are going to change the world.
I've begun a foray into biotechnology & life sciences which I find scary but also exciting and positive.
I love flowers, especially wildflowers and leaves and pressed herbs.
I love art. Performance art. Participatory art. Painting, doodling, graphic design, collage, though I'm not very skilled at collage.
There's little I don't love.
