Favorite Music i like just about all kinds of music. yeah, yeah i know-- everyone says that. but i could be listening to cole porter right now, or i could be listening to rob zombie. i might have a violin partita playing in the background, or i might be tapping my keyboard to led zepplin. i even like country, rap, metal, ambient, swing...really. any kind will do, as long as there is heart and feeling behind it.
Favorite Books i generally try to read three books at a time: one on parenting, one on self-development, one for entertainment. right now the bookshelf has Raising Confident Boys, The Soul of the Samurai, and Infinite Jest.
