Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello people, I am Tim of course. I'm an introverted
apocaloptimist. When I am tired or distracted I can appear quite
aloof. If you engage me in a topic we share a passion for, or take
the time to get to know me, you will find me a warm, loyal, and
enthusiastic friend. I'm told it's a very pleasant warm.
I'm one of those people who's still trying to figure out what I
want to be when I grow up. Of course I grew up many many years ago.
Becoming a parent is the moment when a person's life changes
immediately, radically, and for ever. Now my children are off
living their own lives, and it's all pretty amazing.
I look at the world, trying to be pragmatic and rational.
Generally, I look for the good and the beautiful. I can find that
everywhere. Sometimes I'm so overwhelmed by options that I don't
get done what I needed. But generally, I aim to be diligent about
meeting my commitments. When I do commit to something, I try to
give it my all.
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.
It's a secret.
Perhaps I'm good at reverse engineering frames of reference.

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.
* 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.
* Touch, the squeeze of a hand, a hug, a kiss. The warmth of
closeness. Intimacy, with loving, passionate, joyful
* 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
get me to the milk bar and back, or take me on a journey through
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Enjoying this moment. Yes, right here, right now. It's good, isn't
it. Try the next one!

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't enjoy beer...
Seriously, what I would admit changes constantly due to a wide
range of factors. What exactly is the question? Where am I? Who is
asking? What mood am I in? Can I still recall the question after
all this over thinking?
