I love weaving a tapestry with words - or more often, in awe of others doing it. Watching them dart in and out to form sentences can be breathtaking, or leaning back, throwing them in the air and catching them with your ears. I find inspiration in all forms of creativity: writing, visual arts, performance arts, theatre, dance, everything. I love meeting people from different disciplines, there's so much to talk about and yet so much in common.
Ultimately, my first love is music and much of my life revolves around this love. Playing, listening, talking, watching, I'm insatiable.
I seem to be have been born with an overactive contrarian gene. I've always been drawn to the opposite, the eclectic, the extreme, in all aspects of life - sometimes to my detriment. I can find it wherever I am - or whoever I am with. Creativity, excitement, newness, it surrounds us. I'm good at finding it.
I want to live a life full of extraordinary things. I don't mean crossing the Himalayas in a hot air balloon with nothing to eat but 2 mouldy turnips (although it would make a great story). There can be small extraordinary things every day. Things that make life different, unique, memorable. I don't do anywhere near enough extraordinary things. If you want to be an extraordinary buddy apply within!
Having said all that, I'm not the flaky scatter brained artist type. I've done/doing fairly well in the corporate world, my imaginary friends (Ethel and Miquel) would describe me as reliable and moderately organised. Is that all a contradiction for a creative person?
