I've travelled lots and would love to do more, but really enjoy having a strong sense of community here at home.
I'm eccentric, but a weirdo in a good way. I hope!
I think to sum it up I would say that I can comfortably eat at a 5 star restaurant or have a drink in a strip club, attend the ballet or a rave.
Although I enjoy city life I've gone through a lot of changes recently and have revised my lifestyle a bit. I want more of a balance and to spend more time just living. Taking more time with loved ones and NATURE has become a priority! Don't want to feel like a hamster in a wheel with work, work, work. I'd like to be less driven and sit back and enjoy the ride. If you love getting into nature I'd love to be a partner in ...well not crime... nature loving.
Music is the way to my heart. I enjoy many styles of music and I love to dance, but if I'm going to really shake it for hours, it will most likely be to psy-trance. For listening, I enjoy folk, rock, 80's new wave, electronica, drum and bass, jungle, dub step, classical and more. I'm not a house fan. I see house as martini drinking music. I like hard intense music in general whatever the genre.
Movies include Breaking the Waves, The Piano, Princess Bride, Super Bad, Talladega Nights. I watch a ton of British stuff esp. cop, spy, forensic, mystery type shows/movies and love Masterpiece Theatre, so Prime Suspect, Luther, Spooks, Ripper Street, The Fall, Whitechapel, Broadchurch, The Bletchely Circle and that sort of thing. I love period pieces = The White Queen, Little Dorrit, Persuasion, The Last Kingdom and I could go on forever. Also I like Arrested Development, Trailer Park Boys, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Scrotal Recall, Misfits, Community, True Blood, Being Human (British version), Orange is the New Black, The Mindy Project, Girls, Vikings, Last Tango in Halifax, Breaking Bad. Also into historical documentaries. Can't get enough history right now.
Books I like include The Mists of Avalon, A Prayer for Owen Meany, all vampire a la Anne Rice, many classics. Again I like mysteries and forensic, cop type stories as well as fantasy, sci-fi. I read lots of non-fiction too. My degree is interdisciplinary in Psychophysical Movement Studies so there are some authors for whom I have great respect including Linda Leonard, Pema Chodron and of course Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Currently reading a lot about epi-genetics and the new brain science.
