Random things I like about Ray Davies:
- I like that he likes to work, even though he doesn't have to.
- I like that when he talks to you, he looks you right in the eye.
- I like that he is bright, but doesn't make a big deal about it.
- I like that he is often gracious, even when it is not expected.
- I like that he has taken care of himself enough over the years to still do an amazing split leap onstage. And still totally rocks the black drainpipe jeans.
- I like that he thinks a sense of humor and music go together.
- I like that he observes at all times. There isn't a moment when he is not processing.
- I like that his voice is as good or better than it ever was.
- I like that he is feisty.
- I like his smile very much.
- I like that he is an oddball.
- I like watching other people react to being near him. Even people who do not know who he is. Ray Davies helped to make me an observer.
- I like Ray Davies, despite his many weirdnesses and flaws.
OK, I will get back to work now.
