I am visual and creative. I have been described as a quiet extrovert, I think because I somewhat quietly follow my own path. Except when I play roller derby..THEN I am loud!
I take pleasure from simple things. I will stop the car to watch flocks of birds flying across the sky. Colour, pattern, light, form, sound and scent are all things that make me happy every single day.
Life is good!
cooking and baking
photography (was my job for a long time)
being frivolous and self-indulgent
dreaming...I have an active nightlife and sometimes wake up more tired than when I went to bed!
I dance a pretty good tango and salsa
crochet. I once crocheted an affro wig.
my blue eyes
my calm persona

I don't really watch TV but I watch TV series online. I'm currently loving Shameless.
My music taste is diverse. Warpaint, Regina Spektor, Emilliana Torrini, PJ Harvey, Chairlift, Bon Iver, Beastie Boys, Sigur Ros, Beck, Santigold, Little Dragon, Ms Mr...
I am a major foodie. I find eating to be a sensual and pleasurable experience and I love to try new foods and flavours.
Duck is my favourite meat to cook.
I was a vegetarian for many years, so I have a special relationship to the food I eat, I would like to think that I consciously consume and have respect for the animals I eat. I am not afraid to gut a fish or help cut up a stag.
I have a new-found enjoyment in cigars and whiskey.
Invisible stuff. This is hard to explain, but I think about the things that are absent, that make the things present what they are. Confused? me too.
I do this on a more mundane level also...like questioning why the ad agency chose the professional, conservatively dressed part-maori man to be the spokesperson for power conservation. I don't disagree with their choice, I just ponder about the process of getting to that choice.
Actually I don't think there is a typical day ever, but things I like doing on a Friday night include dinner parties, dancing, catching up with friends or going away somewhere fun for the weekend.
*experience on this site has taught me something! I don't want to have cyber sex with you. I am sure, no thanks.
