I study social movements, and will hopefully have my PhD in hand soon. Then, who knows?
I played classical flute for a million years before abandoning it to geek out a bit as a renaissance recorder player. Now I'm back to flute again, but am wishing I played dobro instead.
Other than music, food in all its capacities is the secondmost primary focus of my existence. I am fortunate to live on an island where cattle, pigs, and chickens run (semi-) wild and free, and there is an abundance of goat cheese, honey, garlic, and swiss chard. Sadly, there are no cocoa plantations but apparently a local distillery is in the works, so at least there's that. Too bad we'll be moving before that manifests.
I generally surround myself with living things- but while I love animals, I prefer plants because they are so much quieter. My 85 pound sulcata tortoise Attila is pretty quiet, too, so he's my current favorite.
I delight in the beautiful and the absurd, and get absolutely giddy when the two occur as one.
