Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hup Hup, here goes!
I really love getting older. Goats, Beetroot and my daughter make
life awesome. Being a single dad is everything grand I thought it
would be, bedecked with rich tapestry, grand adventure and
sometimes epic mires to drag oneself through, but so very
I love deep adventures in thought, conversation, argument,
discussion, philosophical discourse. Not the banal everyday of
confirming how intensely stupid our current government is, nor the
ineptitude of our media, the terrifying idiocy of the unthinking
rednecks, but the beauty of ideas, weaved with hope and science and
work and nature.
For a long time I thought that I wanted a grand polyamorous
existence, but I have found that what I desire is to have more than
one great love, the first lesson my daughter taught me about myself
is that I can have that, without needing each of these great loves
to be lovers. Since then I've worked in to my life a couple more
great loves that take me interesting places.
I feel kinda reborn since my daughter came along, new to the world
and really excited about how it looks now and what can be done with
it. I would like to share that at some point...but if not so be it,
and I'll journey on.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Not necessarily (but most definitely) in this order:
Hanging out with the most curious little beastie and calling it
Trying to organise my chaotic little existence in the gaps between
artemis and sleep...
Slowly reading 'the greatest show on earth'...and frequently
remembering when I could sit and read in 4 hour blocks and deeply
connect with writers.
Contemplating creative work solutions so as not to ever lose
daughter time to a job...
Eating tahini...and beetroot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Relationship advice for others
Talking about words and numbers with smart folks
Explaining how my trivia knowledge doesn't include the pop culture
of the modern pub quiz.

The first things people usually notice about me

are my gorgeous child attached to my person somewhere...then if
they ever move past the gorgeous child part...my penchant for
story-telling, my enthusiasm for conversation, a bit of madness and
of course my A-grade derriere...
oh...and I'm told my beard. *yawn*

get back up again, we don't try harder, we don't sing louder, we
sing at all.

shame. and and and how the current voting public don't likewise
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
First & Third Fridays I am dancing with the Arte-Beast, maybe
going to a gig where she will charm the wits out of all and sundry
by pouting and dancing.
Second & Fourth Fridays I am hoping to head out and dance solo,
or drinking a laphroaigs and reading something that the daily
child-storm doesn't normally allow.
