This sums up my life so far quite nicely:
(High Flight. John Gillespie Magee, Jr)
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
I cruise happily and comfortably in my own skin.
I have a job. Its complicated. Frankly I'd rather avoid the subject until I know you very well.
Listening. I find anyone that wants to tell me about themselves fascinating. I love hearing people's stories.
Massages, cocktails, getting discounts when buying fridges.
Among others of course.
Family. Love them.
Moonlight and music and love and romance. Those moments, those days, those nights that make life the sherbet lucky dip that it is.
3? What can I say...I'm Bear Grylls.
The subjective and fallible nature of knowledge and our perception of reality.
That said - if you could imagine Jim Morrison doing spanish dancing, that is me at a good house party.
You see sustainable hedonism as human beings' raison d'etre.
You like watching the sun come up and live for happiness and fun experiences.
You know what a riding crop and a St Andrews cross have in common.
