Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am Tim of course. I'm an introverted apocaloptimist.

want to be when I grow up. Of course I grew up many many years ago.
Parenthood is the moment when a person's life changes immediately,
radically, and for ever. Now my children are off living their own
I look at the world, trying to be pragmatic. I look for the good
and find that everywhere. Sometimes I'm overwhelmed by life's
potential. But generally, I am diligent about meeting my
commitments. When I do commit to something, I try to give it my
I am unquestionably a hedonist. Life is essentially to be enjoyed.
But I don't take a narrow minded view of that pleasure. I prefer to
create an environment of sustained and shared pleasure. The price
of selfish pleasure is usually too high.
I'm very much polyamorous, even when I have no romantic partners,
which is rare. I like each relationship to last forever, but
realistically all things come to an end sooner or later. More
particularly, I am solo poly / non-heirarchical.
And for all that, I do have my flaws.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Generally I am surviving. Then I'm maintaining a healthy &
positive environment. Then I'm exploring and learning new things.
Then I'm engaging in all the wonders around me. After all that,
it's some quiet time to recharge and reflect in what has passed and
what could be ahead.
Also: learning Ukulele & caring for bicycles!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being the supreme commander of the galaxy. But don't tell anyone.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* People willing to listen to me waffle on about random information
I discovered recently.
* TOUCH, the squeeze of a hand, a hug, a kiss. The warmth of
closeness. Intimacy, with loving, passionate, joyful
* Prescription lenses so that the world around me isn't a blur of
featureless colours and anonymous faces.
* A quite space to be by myself, sitting cross legged while
meditating, hovering 5 cm above the floor.
* A GPS enabled smart-phone with a good built in camera that's
connected to a fast data network providing easy access to accurate
and reliable information.
* A fully equipped kitchen, with a well stocked pantry, garden
fresh herbs, and of course a market full of delightful and diverse
produce in order to keep the kitchen functional.
* A bicycle fitted with lights, bell, and good racks. One that will

anything I post online will end up as public knowledge. In person,
the answer varies according to who I'm talking to, why they want to
know, and how I am feeling. I tend towards over sharing. I've seen
too many people hurt by lies and secrets. I'd much rather tell a
friend something they didn't need to know than NOT tell them
something they DID need to know.
