Agnosticism, and laughing about it

English (Fluently), German (Okay), French (Poorly), Dutch (Fluently)
Non-conformist living in de Zaanstreek loving open space, empty
horizons (and yes, women as well).
Key words: friendly, sincere, a little shy, modest, creative,
intelligent, faithful and very much an individualist ('sparrows fly
in flocks, eagles fly alone' kind of thing:-).
Reaching out here in search of other individuals who might be
interested in friendship; sharing thoughts, feelings, believes,
passions and a bit more.
If you like me please drop me a note because I am not on A-List and
I definitely would like to send you a thank you in return.
What I’m doing with my life
Spending 5 days a week on work (it regularly feels as spillage) and
dreaming about freedom (which seems tot be around the corner) and
love (which seems to be beyond reach at all).
Fortunately there is music, good books, interesting projects and my
big dog friend to compensate the void.
I’m really good at
Probably making my life more difficult than necessary :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I am quite happy to leave first impressions to those who experience
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fantastic literature and SF. The obvious Tolkien (although I read
most of his books when I was 12), Jack Vance, Ballard, Lafferty and
numerous others (lost count of the number of books and authors and
need to move to a house with a bigger library)
Great music is of any period of time and my interest spans from
Stabat Mater to contemporary music and in every genre in between.
Nowadays we live in a great age and I am currently particularly
fond of progressive rock. Some names of an ever changing list :
Steve Wilson, Porcupine Tree, Anathema, Blackfield, Dandy Warhols,
Blaudzun and many more
The six things I could never do without
Air, water, food, friendship, love, sex, music, intimacy, motorbike
rides far away from dutch traffic regulations and speed cameras, my
loved ones, my dreams and - last but not least - my large dog
friend and in addition to that: everything else crossing my path
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Future - actually not very satisfied with my current life and
dreaming about possibilities to extend the mental horizon.
Design and engineering - a passion I am carrying with me throughout
my entire life and which results in an vast number of ridiculous
projects that vary from visual art through motorcycle restoration
to boat building and many other areas in between. Another reason
for moving to a place with more space.
Geopolitics; observing developments in our society which concern
me; make me wonder what my kids and their kids will have to cope
with - it feels as a civilization in decline.. Probably an age
related thing but nevertheless...
On a typical Friday night I am
There actually isn't such a thing as a typical Friday night but
will probably sip some red wine in between a ton of other things
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd rather share my private things with individuals chosen by
myself than in public. Willing to admit here that I'm actually
quite happy NOT to live IN the city but near by; close enough to
enjoy the benefits, far away enough from the disadvantages.
You should message me if
You want to know more, become friends or just want to drop me a
note. I am not on A-List so if you like me it would be great if you
would let me know.
