1. The mystery of Being, and that occasional perfect feeling summed up by Browning: God's in His Heaven, All's right with the world.

2. All the contestants on "The Biggest Loser".

3. There's something about mountains, and something about oceans. Put them together, and you have awe-inspiring Greece. No wonder the ancient Greeks dreamed of such incredible gods.

1. Sleep and csszengarden.com. Among other things.

2. Libertarians. It takes serious [gendered reference to body part] to espouse government-enforced anarchy.

3. I love landscapes in general, everything from the layout of our apartment to the moon. I'm obsessed with the concept and practice of space. I remember in particular an afternoon spent running around the Lake District in England: here and here. And cornfields and glaciers and trees.

1. Words put together elegantly inspire me. A story well-told inspires me. A great performance. Beauty does: a face, an image, a sustained note.

2. Telemarketers. I'm no fan of taking their calls, but anyone who has to go to work every day knowing they're going to be yelled at and hated earns my sympathy and admiration.

3. There are these wide open fields where I go in Vermont, just sitting there under the mountains. All that almost untouched space. It feels very clean and clear and full of possibles.

1. Sex. Friendship. The intertwining of the two.

2. Boddhisattvas, in all walks of life. People who can make things. People who try to be kind.

3. Death Valley blew me away; it was unlike anything else I'd ever seen (not surprising, given my northeastern US roots). Not surprisingly, I also loved the Black Rock Desert when I went to Burningman. I loved Nevada and Utah in general, landscape-wise, but those two locations were breathtaking.
