You know the guy with the headphones and the book at the bus
stop or train station, quietly bopping along to his music and
smiling? Or the man in the suit scolding the greed of some of crows
he is feeding or chatting to a cat that has it's paws on his knee
in the park? How about the man giggling to suppress a guffaw of
laughter when someone makes a good joke or jest? It is quite likely
to be me. :)
I tend to read a lot, when I am not cooking or helping out in friends' businesses. I collect original art works, generally pen and inks. I write poems and short tracts, I call them throw away prose as I send them out to the world on paper or digital wings and then delete them. I am an avid gamer, be it something as simple as chess to hide and seek.
At my worst I am like Prof Henry Higgins, at my best I am me.
I want to travel and see the world, as I will never run out of places to go or things to learn. Money isn't important to me, nor are possessions, so if you want to keep up with the Jones please click away! :)
I have a fondness for musicians, scientists, artists, thinkers, writers, singers, teachers, dancers, lovers, wanderers and dreamers. Playful humans, who are grown up but refuse to stop enjoying life.

*You enter the store and are approached by a kind looking sales assistant*
"Ah, welcome. You are looking for something unique I suspect, follow me"
*You follow her to a display cabinet off to the side of the room*
"Here we have an International project, combined Irish/French effort. The real selling point with this one is its software; its builders come from educational and engineering backgrounds and were driven to make sure it was exposed to every possible stimulus in development. It acquired an eclectic taste in music, art and culture. Over the years it mastered the skills of fine cuisine, creative writing and a charismatic personality. Tragically it appears to have a sense of adventure we can't remove. From roaming the countryside and mountains via its perpetual motion fed feet, to exploring strange new worlds, to seeking out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before....
*Unlocking and opening the glass front of the case, the shopkeeper waves her hand around the body with in. She turns and winks at you conspiratorially*
"On to the physical attributes. This is clearly a classically styled yet rugged utility model, designed for almost every situation and comes with optional facial hair styles (disclaimer: dependant on upcoming roles and projects). A solid build quality in all systems, it's not a flashy high maintenance sports model, but exceeds military specifications and is surprisingly capable. A slightly larger than average heart is located in the right place and provides warmth and passion in equal amounts, 24/7. Its enhanced sense of smell and taste were originally installed to aid in cooking, while paranormal hearing and sight were added as part of the sensualist upgrade package. All craftsmanship has gotten a life time warranty and there is a 90 day returns policy."

I was talking to a young lady on here and she told me about why she had contacted me rather than most of the other men on here. Apparently there are many males (don't want to use the term men as I feel these XY carriers have yet to become such) on here ruining this for the rest of us via vulgar messages, crass machismo or simple-minded sexism. Now I know it is not a one way street, I have received unsolicited messages of the most suggestive sort from women I'd have no interest getting to know further but at least they were not presumptuous or arrogant.
Having been linked to several profiles I can see the stark contrast to some people's approaches and I really must wonder does it work? Spamming poorly spelt, thoughtless messages to all and sundry, do some people just have no standards and will settle for any connection no matter how tenuous or tedious?
What are your opinions about this?

For no real reason, bar to have them known, here are the words that give me most pleasure when vocalised in the English language.
What are yours?

Its a curious phenomenon, choosing photos for this site. Maybe I am just too picky or make too many faces when there are cameras around, but I so rarely see one that would be suitable. I'm always talking to someone or at an odd pose. I think it comes from being behind the lens so much over the years, it feels odd being on the other side.

It is something weird I have noticed, but is definitely a sign of my personality clashing with internet culture.
If I am uninterested romantically in a girl or woman who I am in contact with via this site, I being the old fashioned type of human that I am, write an apologetic message, stating the reasons for my lack of mutual romantic interest as I would in real life when confronted by a suitor whom which the attraction was one way. But this appears to be taken as a sign that I am open to negotiation or am being cruel. *bewilderment*
I would personally find it far more confusing and offensive if I received no explanation for a cessation of communication, but I am told that is considered to be the norm online. How do people stand it? Never mind being on the receiving end, how could any one justify treating another human being like that? Now, I am not some cardiologically cuffed type, but I look homeless people in the eye when I say I have no spare change and take the time to tell people who have approached me, no matter how tentatively, why I am or am not attracted to them. It is a matter of mutual respect.
Am I crazy? Or is it a side effect the apparent distance these flickering fluorescent screens generate?
For a real life comparison, imagine you are having a long distance phone call with a friend. Doing that? They are 3,000 miles away, but you can hear their voice, laughter and in your minds eye you see them smile and make faces as you talk. But then you realise you are bored, tired or distracted. One would never just hang up mid conversation. You'd at the very least make a quick excuse, apologise and hang up, no?
Now, I totally understand if some one is being aggressive or offensive, they have broken decorum and you are perfectly within your rights and good manners to hang up without any explaination. But I could never in a million years, hang up with out being provoked.
Wait, if manners are the unenforced standards of conduct which demonstrate that a person is proper, polite and refined, as decided by the majority of a social group does this make me the rude one? *shock*
So, my deepest apologies dear users for my gross lack of manners, I will always reply, if even to say goodbye!

I used to lie on the grass as a child and imagine myself looking down at me, then zoom up into the sky, then out through the atmospheric layers, beyond the Kármán line (I was an astronomer as a child). To the moon, then to Mars and visiting Venus, through the asteroid belt (which tragically doesn't have a scientific name) just jink past Jupiter, to avoid getting stuck and shoot out beyond Pluto, all the while staring back at the shrinking dot of Earth. Then I'd rush back down towards myself, seeing everything, hearing the roar of solar winds and observing the awe inspiring play of auroras on each planet's poles, crash through the clouds and feel amazing small and yet special, that in a system so small galactically we existed and could see all this.
For some idea of what I mean you should take a gander at this, in HD if you can:
