Books, primarily. Too many to name. Some fiction, some nonfiction, and a bit of poetry.
Films, next. Not many, but those that did affected me deeply.
People, penultimately. Books and films are made by people, but here I am talking about people directly. A few teachers, my children -- or rather the process of being a parent -- and my lovers.
Age, lastly. Sadly, I can't narrow down the most influential experiences, or even the lessons learned.
That's my list!
