Patience, especially when it comes to parenting. I also need to work on practicing the ukulele every day.

the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series are great audio books for long car rides. So are the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

For reading, I loved "Another Roadside Attraction" by Tom Robbins. "The Monkey Wrench Gang" by Edward Abbey, "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austin, and "The Illustrated Man" by Ray Bradbury.

The Road was great. So was "The Day of the Triffids" by John Wyndham.

Sometimes, I wear a shirt that says "Free Palestine" and a kuffiyeh I purchased from a women's coop in Hebron (http://www.womeninhebron.com/). I also have a Black Lives Matter pin on my bag.
Other than that I dress myself and my child in clothing without logos and mostly second-hand.

My camera and this photograph I took (and developed in a darkroom) of my grandmother 16 years ago. She passed this last summer and suddenly everything she ever touched has started to mean so much more.

I have a sneaking suspicion that my partner is more radical than me but lets me come to my own conclusions in my own time. I was a liberal when we started dating so long ago and while I've undergone transformation, he has always remained the same in his perspectives but never pressuring and ever gentile in his approach. I love him for it and here I am.

Photographing people, cooking dishes I've never tried, getting lost on purpose, playing with my child at the beach, smoking with friends around a campfire, and of course, video games.

Thank you for your input. I'll take a poll and what others think too. I feel like there are a number of documentaries submitted that would need such a warning under your qualifications.

I assumed that the subject matter in the description and the warning at the beginning of the film would warn viewers sufficiently. Were you taken off guard?

Dairy is really scary. I had no idea how powerful this industry is until I started working in veterinary medicine.
Also, I am living in a region where the environment has experienced horrible degradation because of the amount of dairy farms present. Environmental regulations require the industrial farms to spray their fields with feces to distribute the waste, however the farmers often will pool the manure which results in massive spills. They will even spray the shit when it's winter, so when the snow melts ... Almost all of the surficial water in the region is contaminated, causing massive losses of native species and increased water treatment. I see that New Zealand is also experiencing these same effects due to the rapid growth in the dairy industry there.
