Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have had a charmed life. Am recently retired and can recommend
it. I was fortunate enough to have a job which sent me around the
world to mainly off the beaten track locations and I have recently
returned to Australia to live. I am optimistic, adventurous, fit
and healthy. My sense of humour is dry, sarcy and comes free of
charge. What little baggage I carry is small and light.
People tell me I look like Ben Kingsley and Patrick Stewart .
That's fine by me. Someone once said I look like Prince Charles -
defamation lawsuit pending.
I am intelligent, witty, a good listener, easy to talk to and
currently without beard. Be great to find someone to hang out with
and travel with. If things move beyond that, so much the better.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being spontaneous. Pottering around and pleasing myself and
enjoying having the time and the money to do it. Doing a bit of

subject matter there), have simple needs and I don't need much to
make me happy.

I pay attention to what's going on the world. Big fan of Radio
National and BBC World Service and grateful for SBS and ABC TV. The
TV remote is handy so I can turn down the volume when Tony Abbott
or his Abbotteers open their stupid mouths. I have just finished
reading The Good Life by Hugh Mackay. Bertrand Russell's
autobiography is next.
Movies - Yes. I am happy to cuddle up with someone and watch a
movie at home but also enjoy films in the big dark room. Most
Hollywood blockbuster movies don't interest me - prefer Independent
movies. You will always find me at film festivals if I moved
quickly and got tickets.
Food - I would die without it. Italian, Thai and Lebanese are
favourites but I eat almost anything. I can cook some of it
Music - my taste is eclectic - from punk to classical to world to
rock and much in between. I try to avoid hip hop, rap and country
and western. www.filtermusic.net
