Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
For someone who makes a living out of writing, I find it remarkebly
hard to summarize myself... Well, maybe I'm just not very
summarizable. But I'm versatile to make up for it.
Maybe I should go for a run through the woods as I usually do when
inspiration runs dry. Or I could just adopt Aragon's saying 'je
raconte ma vie comme on fait les rêves au réveil'. In which case I
would say that I move horses, hug books and write trees.
Don't let it be too confusing. In general I'm just a creative,
kind-hearted, well-mannered (mostly) and only slightly daft sort of
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to remove its husk of superficiality and its core of
rigidity. Then cooking the fresh and meaty parts of it in a mixture
of curiosity and red wine, seasoning it with s&p (sensibility
and poetry) and serving it with gusto to my friends and
It would be nice however to intimately share a large helping of it
with someone special who really appreciates the taste of life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... meditiating, conversating, exhilerating.
... writing (well, sometimes).
... cooking a limited number of exquisite dishes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They say: my eyes. But then again, people who've said that might
have been biased.
Or - when it just happened - my trimestrial haircut (I like it
shorter in the summer than in the winter).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Ah, the abundance! The abundance!
Let's try to be brief...
- Books: modern novels and poetry, mostly dutch, but some english
(McEwan,...) and french (Nothomb,...) as well.
- Movies: I look for certain directors: Lynch, Almodovar,
Tarantino, Spielberg, Inarritu, Loach, ...
- Music: from classic (Beethoven) to heavy (Metallica) and A LOT in
- Food: almost everything, but I prefer pasta, salads, fish,
seafood and a good glass of local beer or foreign wine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the obvious sleep, love, drinks and the internet, and
not in order of importance:
- my nephews
- sunsets and weather changes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
... life, I guess. Is there anything else?
(And my next move(s), but mainly when I'm playing chess.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a good movie or an interesting play. Around a cosy table
or downtown in a nice pub with some friends. Sometimes relaxing
with a book or the tv.
When none of the above, I'm playing chess.
As for Saturdays: more of the above, no chess.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I almost answered this with 'I sometimes empty my mailbox on the
street in my night shorts' , but that might have been too private.
