· Ingmar Bergman — The Path Against the Wind, by Cristina Carvalho; · The Secret Life of the Mind, by Mariano Sigman; · The Strange Order of Things, by António Damásio; · Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy; · the poetry of Emily Dickinson and Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen; · and the Harry Potter books, always.
· Casablanca, always! · The Poirot series, with the unforgettable David Suchet; · all of Woody Allen’s films; · The Tyrant Father, by António Lopes Ribeiro; the Hitchcock and the Indiana Jones films; · Cosmos, by Neil deGrasse Tyson; · Buried Secrets of the Bible with Albert Lin. · And many more things, the truth being that in times like these I’m only the mood for scientific or lighter stuff.
All the Tchaikovsky, Bach, Mozart (except the Requiem, too dark for these already though times we’re going through), The Beatles, Trovante, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Paul Simon, John Lennon...
I’ve been creating content for MNAC’s online communication. I also keep in touch with friends on Zoom and take Pilates and Yoga lessons.
