Strapping a firework to a bottle of vodka & whoooshhhh!! Hang on a minute, this question deserves better than that & after all, it’s asked by the Aloha dude :¬) So here’s my genuine answer. What makes my spirit soar? My kids & god dammit, life itself!! There…that better :¬)
Seeing my kids and friends smile is number one for me. A great day in the outdoors is a massive feel good. And days like yesterday and today to see man triumph against all odds, like yanking those Chilean miners out of the ground, does it for me too!
Good music and art definitely does. Pines of Rome by Respighi is the most spirit-soaring music I’ve ever heard (and I just listened to several recordings of it today). Music inspired by pine trees ftw. I think it relates to my love of nature, of course. Being in the outdoors can make me feel that way as well.
