My self-summary
Scottish man living in Barcelona looking for something real.
I like being in the nature, sand beneath my feet, laughing with friends, the smell of grass after rain, the way music can transport you to another time and place, the taste of good food and wine, the warmth of the sun on my face, the sound of laughter, the way cats can make you feel so calm, traveling on a train and seeing the landscape roll by and so so many other things too numerous to mention.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, designing, traveling, learning yoga(making an elegant practice look ugly), learning(killing) the guitar, drawing and painting, walking and exploring, living and loving Barcelona.Appreciating the small things and enjoying the day to day.Trying to the live it the best I can and be a good person.
I’m really good at
Being silly, being serious,I like to cook although I wouldn't say I'm really good at it, listening to music(can you be good at listening to music?I suppose this means I'm a good listener), forgetting to buy milk(which is annoying in the morning when I want my Earl Grey tea)
Should this section be called Ego Trip?
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure what other people notice about me, but Okcupid notices that I'm an empty vessel and I need to fill out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Off the top of my head:Midnight's Children, To Kill a Mocking Bird, Catcher in the Rye,Auster, Faulks, Carey, Murakami, Marquez.
Jazz,soul,roots reggae,ska,electronica,folk,y mas.
Gil Scott Heron, Nina Simone, Neil Young, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan, Bowie, Coltrane, Matthew Halsall, Etta James, Cinematic Orchestra, Matthew E White, Quantic, Midlake, Bjork,Mos Def, De la Soul, Ebo Taylor and the most excellent Fela kuti(and so so much more)

The six things I could never do without
Something to draw with.
Something to draw on.
I love music but if all music was taken away from me and I was
left with only my singing voice I could do without that!
I quite enjoy having eyes, they seem quite important, you know.. to see and all, yes..eyes.(do they count as one or two?)
I do like a good laugh, you know the kind that hurts?
I do like Marmite a lot but I suppose if it came between me and the Marmite, the Marmite would lose.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I actually can communicate with cats or not and some other stuff that is slightly more important.

The art of conversation, question and answers, seems to be dying.Now we seem to be in the age of me, myself and I.

Take note-"Never love anybody that treats you like you're ordinary" Oscar Wilde. We all deserve the best.
On a typical Friday night I am
NOT devising plans to take over the world, stamp collecting or dancing in my bedroom to soft-rock ballads. These are things I never do on a Friday(on any other day perhaps, apart from dancing to soft rock ballads which will never happen because the devil himself invented soft rock ballads).Everything else is a possibility.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That the adverts on okcupid are now telling me I need a "revolutionary new shortcut to six pack abs"-how dare they!!
But also I can get a nice cheap prom dress for $53 which I'm sure you will agree is a bargain.Can't wait for my next prom.

I'm attracted to modesty.

IMPORTANT:It's not private but I hate the games people play with each other, life is too short for that nonsense. Respect(there is a right and a wrong way to speak to and treat somebody), HONESTY and a side helping of sincerity please. Should be easy right?
You should message me if
If you don't take yourself too seriously and your ego hasn't outgrown your body.
You know what you want and you're emotionally available;e.g. you haven't locked your heart in a metal box, hired a small boat and sailed to the deepest part of an ocean, and then dropped the box into the water, and then, after climbing to the top of a huge mountain you have found a small cave to live the rest of your days:)
You dislike the music of Phil Collins.This can be our first shared interest.
The End(thanks anyone for reading this nonsense)
