The Skydiving Incident

Short Story by Donald Miller
Posted: Jun 18, 2012
A man is honest, at a price.



I like graphic design, which you can probably tell from the way I assembled all of the social media. I also like the usual things that everyone else does: music, movies, reading, writing. I’m also a big fan of the comic series Calvin and Hobbes.

Some of the more unusual things I like are classical music. I have all of Mozart’s Bach’s, and Beethoven’s work. Of course, I also like rock, blues, and jazz music. I also like philosophy.

Favorite bands are The Who, The Doors, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, U2.

I have a huge library of Who concerts. Absolutely an incredible experience listening to those guys when they were in their prime, and Moon was still alive.

My favorite book — and movie — is Out of Africa. A happy coincidence. I read the book, and then I saw the movie. The first twenty minutes of the movie through me because it wasn’t anything like the book. That turned out to be a real blessing. They are nice companion pieces to each other. The book is about Karen Blixen’s internal life, focusing on her inner world as a woman who owns a coffee farm in Kenya. The movie is about her romantic life. Meryl Streep played Karen exactly the way I saw her in my mind’s eye when I read the book.

Favorite authors are Joseph Conrad, Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, and John Steinbeck.
