I am good at making music. I am good at driving my car. And riding my bicycle. I can (usually) fix stuff, solve problems (but not math problems), put up a tent, negotiate virtual space, listen empathetically, oh, the list just goes on and on and on ...
No just kidding, there is nothing wrong with my neck.
They will say they notice my compassion, intelligence (which really just means I think about a lot of things, not that I have the answers). I am engaged with people, I am physically fit, healthy and strong, and I have nice hands. And eyes. Apparently.
Favourite book: I am a strange loop, by Douglas Hofstadter. Read very widely though, to learn and for fun. Currently reading 'The Philosopher and the Wolf', or what the wolf taught the philosopher about being human. Great book, challenging insights and a great read about a real wolf and a real philosopher. It probably has convinced me to return more fully to vegetarianism. The late Christopher Hitchens writes interesting stuff.
Enjoy folk music, acoustic singer songwriters, dub-reggae (like shapeshifter), electronic music, listen to lots of world music, Indian and African music, really like an Australian blues band called Chase the Sun (truly inspirational guitarist). Not a great fan of 80s music, even though I was there! Don't really do nostalgia. Prefer making my own music as well, experimenting.
Mainly vegetarian these days, temper my eating with ethical considerations and good health aspirations.
Movies, hey, just saw Django Unchained (Tarantino's latest gift to cinematic blood and style), and surprisingly, the discourse of slavery. Loved it. Now need to think about it.
But love a wide range of movies,
Salt (Well, its true for all of us...)
My fertile imagination
The forests and mountains of Aotearoa
Opps, more than six... sorry!
And good people in my life
What the self is
Whether we have souls and what a soul actually is
Climate change and it solutions
How to value other species who share this planet with my species
The nature of happiness
Why I stay up so late even though I have a busy job to attend to
Who will respond to my profile
Why I even have a profile
Why some people are callous
How we can future proof our careers and our emotional well being
That's all. Nothing else. Expect whether the All Blacks will win the next Rugby World Cup (and the answer is ... maybe!)
b) Riding shotgun on the local stage coach
c) Playing music somewhere, like NY city or Geelong.
d) I have dematerialised to stop growing old.
Only one of these is true and even that one is a little fanciful; I have never been to Geelong.

Message me if you are fit and seek to stay in shape, are emotionally open and self aware, have a fertile mind, cultivate generosity and compassion, like the inner city but also love the forests and enjoy camping/adventure. And love being around music.
You cannot be a Collingwood fan.
You think I'm kidding?
Actually, I am. I don't care one way or the other...
Sometimes I am asked if I am looking for a 'relationship', as if it is the holy grail of life. It is not and cannot be. I don't think of being on this site in those terms. I seek to live authentically in each moment. I am a not a follower of social convention on these things.
Please know that I do not want to enter into long virtual communications (I have neither the time nor inclination). If your profile appeals, then I much prefer to have a phone chat and if that goes OK, to meet for a coffee. For me this is the only way I can see whether I connect and are potentially attracted to someone. I seek to be kind and gracious and honest and am not here looking for quick sex. Of course I want sex, but that is not my motivation for being here. So I will say if it doesn't feel right to take it further, I am here in a serious way and willing to be patient. Thanks for reading this! :-)
