    to unwind, i might listen to classical music whilst reading a book. i also enjoy a good long walk in the outdoors, where, if it's quiet, i'm able to detach from the environment and internally set my thoughts in order.

    i'm energized by a deep, truth-seeking discussion with an intelligent friend or group of friends, especially if the discussion centres around one or more topics that interest me.

    Any kind of solitude, where I can pursue my interests. I also love to be in nature. Yesterday, I was driving to the grocery store, and the landscape was bathed in white snow. As I drove, and was alone in my thoughts, I was just...happy. There's nothing like it.

    Also, like nim said, I can get lost for hours in a deep discussion with someone. These energize me a lot. The less effort I expend maintaining my social charade, the more I can focus on the quality of interaction.

    As Dr. Manhattan says, "I prefer the stillness here." Words I live by.

    My horses calm me like nothing else. The immediacy of being around them demands that my mind must focus on where I am and where they are. Tuning in on what their behavior is telling me leaves no room for human stresses. Also, walking as fast and long as I can, wonderful for my mind. Also, talking in our extended,meandering way with my best friend is a source of refueling for me. He is one of the extremely few people who doesn't drain my energy.

    Playing Diablo II really gets me relaxed. For some reason that game always hits the spot, even after 9 years.

    Other than that, I listen to some music and lately I've been practicing fingerpicking on my acoustic.

    Sleeping in
    Watching a really good movie
    Getting a massage
    Reading a really good book
    A trip to the Caribbean (Anse Chastanet Resort in St. Lucia was probably the best of the ones I've been to)

    EDIT: Oh, and I forgot two:
    Sex
    Listening to music

    To unwind I drink spirits and watch tv-lite.
    "Of course we spent our money in the good times. That's what you're supposed to do in good times! You can't save money in the good times. Then they wouldn't be good times, they'd be 'preparation for the bad times' times."

    "Every country in the world owes money. Everyone. So heere's what I dont get: who do they all owe it to, and why don't we just kill the bastard and relax?"
