I discovered two things in the second grade that changed my life forever: God and books. I've loved both of them ever since. I enjoy reading just about anything as long as it's good writing. I like fiction, poetry, literary criticism, philosophy, spirituality, Thomas Merton, the Desert Mothers & Fathers, queer studies, and especially a good cookbook.
