Surprise … things I thought I loved (or should)

Posted in Uncategorized on January 5, 2009 by barbararuth

1. Live music concerts. This is a hard one to admit. I saw the Grateful Dead over 200 times, which isĀ  a huge part of my self-concept. What I’ve realized is that I loved the community, in that case, enough to overcome what tends to keep me away from concerts – aversion to loud noise and overstimulation in crowds.

2. Political activism. I simply don’t have the patience. I care deeply about a lot of causes but think more religiously than politically about how to effect change.

3. Cooking. The hippie in me would love to fit that earth mama thing, but, if I could afford it, I’d have a full-time, live-in staff!
