My self-summary
born in Brussels with a taste for chocolate, beer and french fries, raised in Amsterdam to appreciate honesty, understanding and tolerance, moved to the USA to spread my wings, to love and laugh and generally be myself.
What I’m doing with my life
doing everything i can to help my twenty-two-year-old son become a happy person, walking the dog, searching for an affectionate friend and researching a new book which for all i know will never get written. each makes me happy in its own peculiar way.
I’m really good at
other than the usual, i am good at driving and following recipes, but not good at following directions when driving.
The first things people usually notice about me
i have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: W.G. Sebald's Austerlitz, Richard Holmes' biography of Coleridge, David Mitchell's The Thousand Autumns of Jakob de Zoet.
music: Shostakovich, Mahler, Sibelius, Schubert, Vivaldi.
film: Bill Forsyth's Local Hero, Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, Jane Campion's An Angel at My Table.
The six things I could never do without
i'ld like to think i could do without anything if i had to. it's difficult for me to imagine life without the wind, my eyesight, my hearing, my kids, and my memories and imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what makes me hold the opinions/insights/preferences/prejudices that i have.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing whatever i might be doing any other day of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
there are no private "things" i am ashamed of, yet i wouldn't admit to all equally readily.
You should message me if
if you're kind and affectionate and aren't looking for a millionaire to support you.
