As I get older, I read more nonfiction than fiction for pleasure. I’m not sure when this started, maybe even in the last two years. I think teaching literature has something to do with it. My brain may need the switch by the evening. Regardless, I’ve also started watching more documentaries and one that I have recently enjoyed is The Mona Lisa Curse. In the film, art critic Robert Hughes dissects the contemporary art world and the “business” that is all but killing “real art.” He’s curmudgeonly, but interesting. You can watch the documentary on YouTube.
I like red peppers and Jan Švankmajer movies.
