My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Green" / Left of centre / atheist / socially libertarian etc. ?

Do you enjoy the outdoors; sleeping under canvas; messing about in or on the sea; gardening; self-sufficiency, ?

Music has always been an essential accompaniment to my life and I would want to share this with a partner so there would need to be a healthy overlap in our tastes or we'll drive each other nuts (details below) ...

And I would so much like to feel like dancing again !
(And for once, not alone.)

Do you live within reasonable mutual cycling distance (15 miles) of east Bristol ?

Given my plans for the fairly near future this is probably academic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning French in preparation for "retiring" to coastal France in about 5 years' time. (most likely Finistère) and building up to the massive clearout of accumulated crud..
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Inventing and adapting stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully that there's less and less of me.

In spite of having a basically wholefood vegan diet for 25 years and cycling every day, over recent years I ended up at the weight of the average South Sea Islander of my age group.. and even starting to cycle as much as 70 miles on a Sunday didn't make much difference.

After seriously overhauling my diet, I now wouldn't look out of place in Italy ... my dream is "Japan", but I will settle for "South Korea" by next summer. (world average BMI).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music yes - above all.
I was raised in the 70s on the likes of Vaughan Williams.
I have no talent for making music, but I'm an enthusiastic consumer of everything from whale songs to Detroit Techno via Bach and Jazz.

I spent the late 90s at local raves and House nights and once I hit 40 unsuccessfully tried to replace it with Salsa.
In retirement in Brittany I hope I manage to discover the joys of "Fest Noz" :-

Electronica; dub; jazz; reggae; Joni Mitchell; Vaughan Williams; Ravel; worldbeat; dance; Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan; Orbital; Basic Channel; Augustus Pablo; AphexTwin; KingTubby; Culture; Miles Davis; Hendrix; ambient; Basic Channel; Goa Trance; techno; Ulrich Schnauss; stax; motown; soul; LTJ Bukem; Larry Heard; Andy Sheppard; Boards of Canada; TheOrb; garage; Pink Floyd; Cocteau Twins; Soul II Soul; Stanley Clarke; John Martyn; Disco; house; Drum&Bass; detroit; Jeff Mills; Keith Jarrett; Weather Report; Airto Moreira; Linton Kwesi-Johnson; stax; motown; steve hillage; MC Conrad.

Movies - never been my thing - apart from a few classics like "Inherit The Wind" and the Pagnol films...

TV - after years as a bit of a TV addict (Star Trek TNG / "House" etc), I recently cancelled my cable package and tend to watch youtube videos - both professional and amateur.

About 25 years ago I saw quite a bit of live theatre - Ibsen, Chekhov, Shakespeare ... I use to be quite keen on radio drama.

I learned to read very early, read a lot as a child, but haven't read a book in years - though I process vast amounts of online material - in both directions.

Food - currently vegan again - though I'm still hoping to find an excuse to harvest and eat sea food in retirement - but that seems less and less likely.
Favourite dish stir-fry - using home grown veggies and sprouts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Difficult to put these first three in order :-

1. Music - I used to carry FOUR MP3 players - two of them were phones - though I never actually made or accepted any calls.

2. Bicycle - since I dislike sport or even "exercise" per se, it took 20 years to realise cycling had become an essential part of my daily life - I nearly always cycle with music to make it more like dancing.

3. The Internet - such a shame it is so underused as a learning resource by so many. I have a great need to know how things work.

4. I would like to say "The Atlantic ocean", but I rarely get to see it - let alone mess around in/on it - hopefully to be corrected in "retirement" when I hope it will compliment my cycling and much more gardening for daily exercise.

I'm taking daily access to at least a token amount of nature as a given. (as well as oxygen, water, food etc)

5. A loaf of (home made wholemeal) bread, a jug of wine (French red)

6. And thou - currently missing and who would hopefully move a lot nearer number 1....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Can man live on Brussels sprouts alone ?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Discussing anarchy and kittens on Urban75
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Anything I haven't already confessed will have to wait until we know each other better.
