About Craig1967

In this world, but not of it.

And now my charms are all o'erthrown
And what strength I have's mine own
Which is most faint; now t'is true
I must be here confined by you

But release me from my bands
With the help of your good hands
Gentle breath of yours my sails
Must fill, or else my project fails,
... ... ...
... ... ...
Now I want spirits to enforce, art to enchant
And my ending is despair,
Unless I be relieved by prayer

Which pierces so that it assaults
Mercy itself and frees all faults
As you from crimes would pardon'd be
Let your indulgence set me free

Call me Ishmael

Relationship Status:
Hiking and other out-of-doors activities during the day, reading (comparative religion/mythology/history/culture) and films (something visual or very well acted) at night. I run, do muay Thai, taijiquan (Yang 108 form) and judo to keep in shape. Travelling when time and resources allow, although it's been a while since I've been away. Hoping to go to Japan in October. Or maybe Nepal. As for being here on lush, it's a mixed thing. I enjoy the psychological aspects of the sexual scenarios in the stories, the motivations and the various causes of attraction between people. Very few seem to dwell on or articulate those motivations.
Favorite Books:
Mary Renault's books on ancient Greece, The Lord of the Rings, all things mythological (currently re-reading the Ramayana at the moment), George Orwell, Cormac McCarthy's Border Series and The Road, William Blake, Patrick O'Brian's Aubry/Maturin novels, LeCarre, especially The Little Drummer Girl, James Joyce, James Clavell's first three novels set in Asia. Non-fiction, Joseph Campbell, Barbara Tuchman, Mikiso Hane, D.T. and S. Suzuki, the various Ancients. More anon.
Favorite Authors:
Favorite Movies:
Cold Mountain. Two films by Kore-Edda, Maborosi and After Life. A Man for All Seasons (the Paul Scofield version), The Crucible, Breaker Morant, The King's Speech, Miller's Crossing, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, The Road to Perdition (incredible cinematography), A Mid-Winter's Tale (one of the funniest movies I've ever seen), K.B.s Henry V, and more anon in this section too.
Favorite Music:
Mostly classical and a lot of different cultural music, but Johnny Cash still impresses and Emy Lou Harris' Wrecking Ball CD has some sublime sound on it, Lisa Gerard MUST be possessed by some kind of angel when she sings, but when I listen to whatever, it depends on the time and place.
