I love trees. They're glorious stargazers and perfectly amenable to anthropomorphizing regardless of whether or not they pay any attention to you when you try it. I once took a nap in a tree. It was one of the most restful things I've ever done and I'm terribly happy that I didn't fall out while I dozed there, up in the branches, swaying to the wind.
I'm a bleeding heart liberal with a scientific bent and even though the world can be terribly dark, I can't help but be foolishly optimistic because there's so much beauty in the world and in the hearts of most people, that I just know that somehow, things will get better. Either that, or we'll just struggle along and figure things out the best we can and hopefully survive the disasters we create; real things like climate change and world wide economic collapses, the Gap logo change, or the fun fictional disasters such as zombie invasions, lovecraftian horrors and the sad passing of wonderful fads into mainstream memes.
I'm looking, well, I'm not really looking, I'm just open to somehow bumping into that perfect mix of human that complements my own strange mix of habits, inspirations, world views and dreams. I would like this to be a reciprocal sort of complementariansm where we both support each other in our works and in our random attempts at self expression. I would very much like to find someone who is fun and adventurous and just a bit crazier and extroverted than myself.
and saving for a better day.
I'm running (barefoot style) and rowing (indoor) and trying to
build a better body out of whimsical determination and a randomly
healthy vegetarian diet.
I'm painting and sketching, writing and dreaming and attempting to
get some projects done in the little bit of spare time I
I'm wondering how repetitive I can get...
I'm halfway decent at the painting and drawing thing, but I could be better.
I'm quite good at telling my daughter nonsense stories on long drives.
I love the Jasper Fforde books and anything by China Mieville is sure to please. Chung Quo was an amazing epic series of books. I love Don Quixote and think Les Miserable was incredibly manipulative but still very enjoyable, much the same way Avatar was. I'll read or watch just about anything.
British TV is almost always a favorite and Netflix and Hulu are lovely lovely timekillers that I really must use less but I don't think I will.
As for music, I love the odd and the frenetic, the soothing and the moody. From Circus Contraption, Dresden Dolls, Rasputina, Faun Fables and Cat Power to Apocolyptica, Ye Ye, Psychobilly, Old school Hillbilly, Classic Metal, Musical Theatre, Cambodian Rock, and Zoe Keating.
