    Totally random revival of old thread that probably won't be revived for much longer after this:

    I'm reading "Good Poems", the collection edited by Garrison Keillor, at the moment, and I'm really enjoying it. I especially enjoyed the section about God, not because of religion, but because something about being poetic about thankfulness really gives my Fi a warm fuzzy feeling.

    An example of a poem I liked from it:


    Lord Whoever, thank you for this air
    I'm about to in- and exhale, this hutch
    in the woods, the wood for fire,
    the light-both lamp and the natural stuff
    of leaf-back, fern, and wing.
    For the piano, the shovel
    for ashes, the moth-gnawed
    blankets, the stone-cold water
    stone-cold: thank you.
    Thank you, Lord, coming for
    to carry me here-where I'll gnash
    it out, Lord, where I'll calm
    and work, Lord, thank you
    for the goddamn birds singing!

    - "Poem in Thanks", Thomas Lux


    You wouldn't think that ESTJs would like poetry, but we can. At least, I can. But it takes patience for me, and I really have to be in the right mood. And I'm picky about it.

    Hmm, I know an ESTJ that is not a food enthusiast. He wasn't even impressed when I told him that I made my own butter...

    He wasn't impressed? That's lame! I think it's impressive. Hard work and dedication to make an excellent finished product that you can be proud of - that's pretty ESTJ-like. So the ESTJ should have been impressed

    I have no inclination to book-tastes really. Whatever sparks interest is good enough. However i tend to fluctuate towards History, Philosophy and older fiction. I especially enjoy the post-apocalypse theme's.
    "Where can you flee? What road will you use to escape us? Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations."

    I love to read and I read mostly non-fiction with a bit of silly fiction thrown in on those rare occasions when I need pure escapism. Often, the nonfiction I read is directly relevant to my life and/or circumstances, but it can also be on any one of about a thousand subjects. Often times I have more than one book going at a time. Right now I'm working on:

    The American Way of Death, Revisited- Jessica Mitford
    Latecomers: Children of Parents over 35- Andrew L. Yarrow
    Words and Rules- Steven Pinker
    Murphy Brown: What is it with us? Why can't we take the easy road once in awhile?
    Avery Brown: Because it's boring and dishonest and uncomfortable, like wearing a pair of shoes all day that pinch your feet.
