Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an outdoorsy psychonaut who loves to commune with the beauty
of the natural world, I am a lifelong and passionate autodidact, I
am an ongoing and ever evolving collection of plans and ambitions
undertaken mostly under the best intentions and achieved with
varying degrees of competence and success, & cetera.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I picked up a couple of degrees in philosophy and psychology in
order to address the questions "Who the hell am I?" and "What the
hell am I?", which leaves only "What the hell am I doing?" left to
figure out. Plan B (for "bachelor of engineering") is in effect.
Long way still to go down this road, or at least it feels that way
from where I'm standing (sitting) right now.
I'm definitely not doing the right amount of practicing these days,
but developing musically and sharing that with others is very high
on the permanent list of stuff my life is about. I'm skeptical that
I have a purpose in life but I definitely have a favourite way to
be, and that is jamming with likeminded folk.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing the best, making the most, finding the bright side.
I am good at sizing things up and figuring things out, and I love
to learn. But I'm not so great at keeping on top of practicing,
which is why I am also not all that good at playing my banjo.
Workin' on it.

Ernest Hemingway, Friedrich Nietzsche, Albert Camus, Dr. Hunter
Thompson, Carl Sagan
The Blues Brothers, Dr. Strangelove, Vertigo, The Empire Strikes
Back, Moon, Sunshine, Tucker & Dale vs Evil, Let The Right One
Usually watch news and documentaries (<3 Frontline) rather than
fiction. All time favourites include Yes Minister, The Simpsons,
and South Park
I do a weekly psychedelic music hour on the local community FM
station, and so I am always rooting around for new (or old) trippy
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Clean, cold, high-quality H2O
A tune on my mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
These days, electrons. Which is pretty cool.
In general: Ethics, astronomy, the weather where I am
(fascinating), photographic composition, something Simpsons
On a typical Friday night I am
