I would describe myself as easy-going, tolerant, non-materialistic, non-aggressive, and I try to live by my principles which include honesty, reliability and a determination not to cause harm to any other creature, human or animal.
My biggest passions in life are music, photography and vegan food. I also like travel, walking, nature, art, antiques, canal boating, history and much more.
I'm not a "glass half full" person - I keep my glass fully topped up at all times as I enjoy being alive. My philosophy is to make the most of what you've got rather than to spend your life wishing for what you haven't.
I love cats but don't have any right now as it's not practical where I live. I like dogs too (in moderate doses).
I'm happy, contented and self-sufficient on my own, but maybe, just maybe, there might be someone out there...
I have a young outlook, I'm fit and healthy and well-preserved, and I make friends easily with people of all ages. I actually believe I'm 10 years younger and my parents forged my birth certificate to get me off their hands sooner.
Favourite places: Venice, Inchiquin Valley, Lake Tahoe, Salzburg, Wiltshire, San Francisco, Chichester Harbour, Mount Shasta, Beara Peninsula, The Lizard, Wells Cathedral.
My views on religion: faith in anything other than ourselves is unnecessary.
My views on politics: I like the idea of anarchism without anarchy - we need rules but we don't need rulers.
My views on the nature of the universe: It's whatever you decide it is.
My views on astrology: There is some evidence that some personality traits may be shared by those with the same birthsign. The success or failure of a relationship between different signs lies not in the differences but in how you handle them.
