A few of my favourite things: Being inspired, laughing at the absurdity of it all, having fun, subverting the dominant paradigm, finding joy and beauty in all things, living to the point of tears, seeing everyone and everything as my teachers, great conversations over wine, getting overexcited at the lamest things, outrageous ideas, impossible dreams that refuse to die, culture, counterculture, revolution, anarchy, philosophy, poetry, laughter, friends, connections, coffee, the beach, oceans, horizons, new horizons, art, arthouse cinema, social justice, environmental justice, dancing salsa, playing percussion, reading, writing, hiking, swimming, sailing, kayaking, the colours lime green and turquoise, funk music, samba music, ancient civilisations, future civilisations, picnics, strawberries, mangoes, the smell of guavas, philosophising the interconnectedness of everything, love as a political concept, being in love, sunsets, full moons, liberating the imagination from the dictatorship of reason, creative vitality, insubordination, ecology, sharing as a subversive practice, all about whatever you’re passionate about and would like to share with me, the world and everything in it, the worlds yet to come, the birds that sing outside my window, the whiff of tear gas down the block…
