I really care about my friends and family and seek to nurture and strengthen bonds with all.
I have a great many passions and find more all the time. Obviously music is number one. I usually wind down from a day of singing or tuning by singing more or playing music. I love playing Beethoven and Mozart and Bach on my piano, and also love playing jigs on my mandolin. I love jamming with friends too. It would be a bonus if you played an instrument or just liked singing.
I have been home brewing for 5 years and still brew lots. I get lots of pleasure in brewing great craft beer and sharing it all with my friends. Bonus if you like beer and exploring new tastes.
Cooking is a huge part of my life. I eat vegan at home and get a kick out of trying new kitchen creations. Though I will eat anything offered to me when out. Strangest thing I've eaten? Probably fish eyes and jellyfish.
Keeping fit is central to my happiness. I bike everywhere I can and don't mind getting caught in the occasional rain as long as there's dry clothes at the end. I'm a fair weather runner (no snow). I'm a member at a squash club and just love smacking the ball against the wall with good guys Trash talk is key.
Learning and exploration are central to me. I usually go on a long canoe trip each summer and usually travel abroad. I'm thinking Vietnam next.
Making eye contact
Coming up with spontaneous lyrics
Going against the grain
Trying new things
Small engine repair
Gleam of bike-sweat on the brow
My curly hair
Food deserves its own paragraph. I will eat anything. Food and drink are an exploration. Mussels in wine sauce, paella, sushi, beans, garden tomatoes, pizza, figs, potatoes, fresh beer, good regional wine, date squares, m&m's from a vending machine, avocados with olives, olive oil on everything, dal. You get the picture.
Art (music, paintings, theatre etc.)
How I can foster various relationships.
What's for supper.
How to get my next gig.
What my nieces and nephew are up to.
What my body is telling me.
Making supper with a friend.
Drinks out with friends.
Alone with a book or music or the project of the night/week.
Watching some live music.
You think I'd find you interesting and would like me to learn more about you.
