One of Chris' songs is Things I Like, quite literally a list of the things in life he enjoys.
Inspired by the song I've decided to compile my own list of things I like.
I like the freedom of not owning a car, riding my single speed down Winnipeg's flat streets, peddling at top speed down a carless strip of road.
I like drinking black coffee and reading on a sunny day.
I like farmers' markets.
I like playing outdoor informal hockey on a cold winter night.
I like walking down the street in a densely populated neighbourhood.
I like spending a whole afternoon thumbing through the selection at local record stores.
I like meticulously reading the liner notes of albums.
I like stories about robots, science and space.
I like cheering for the underdog.
I like simple food.
I like looking at the landscape from an airplane window.
I like cetaceans.
I like learning the history of places I've lived and visited.
I like meeting people from vastly different parts of the world.
I like cooperatively run businesses, and places that treat workers with dignity and respect.
