My self-summary
To plagiarize: I am myself, it wasn't like I had a choice, everyone else was taken. I like to dance, I like to drive too fast and ride motorbikes. I no longer feel the need to endanger myself or others, but it was fun while it lasted. I think French champagne and stylish fashion goes together well. A good restaurant is an oasis in a sea of mediocrity.
What I’m doing with my life
Update: I am not dancing at the moment, I am not riding my motorbike, although I just got another one. I am still slowly recovering from a serious accident I had a few years ago. So, not seriously busy trying to save the world, one chicken at a time.
No I am not in therapy, but I am still the (occasional) therapist.
I’m really good at
Playing with it till I break it (damn). Yes I am good with my hands and my brain, no emotions please, I am a male.
Anything I set my mind to I get really good at, fast. Not too fussy what it is as long as it's interesting. There is something about Latin dance, especially Zouk, that I love and I so wish that I was really good at it .
Tango, wow! As someone said "Life is like Tango... sad, sensual, sexy, violent and quiet". I have to admit, I was warned "Tango will eat you alive", hmmm, now where's that sauce.
The first things people usually notice about me
People don't notice something 'about' me, they just notice me.
Well, it could be my hazel eyes, my height, of course, it's my height.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read everything that looks interesting or has been recommended. I read about Zig Ziglar and Richard Branson out of curiosity and a desire to find a suitable model for life and success. I read books about adventure like 'West With The Night' , a book about Africa's first female pilot who pioneered flight in the era of safari, and then went on to become the first woman to fly from England to the American mainland across the Atlantic. I am a big fan of cyberpunk and read Phillip K. Dick and William Gibson, I have also been reading "The Brain That Changes Itself" by William Doidge. This book will challenge your reality about how we learn and the extreme plasticity that is a natural function of our brain. We are capable of so much more than most of us realize. I am also reading "The Ethical Slut" by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy. This book expanded my understanding of what constitutes a caring, loving and ethical relationship(s) in a changing world. My preconcepts around love and relationships were challenged?

I am a huge music fan and a day never goes past when I dont spend time listening to some of my favorites or discovering new sounds. I listen to everything from Jazz to Trip hop or Dream House and all things in between. I have nearly 4,000 songs on my I Phone (totally full) ranging from Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs (huge fan) to Kirsty MacColl or Kraftwerk. I have a heap of P.J. Harvey and lots of Sonic Youth. I loved Elvis Costello's new direction with "North" . but I have plenty of "The Attractions" as well. I like my local indie stuff as well and I am a fan of Sia, Jen Cloher, Love Outside Andromedra, The Waifs, Little Birdy and a special mention to Machine Gun Fellation (so outrageous) and to Inga Liljestrom(such an amazing voice). Nelly Furtado and Nina Hagen sit side by side, as does Nirvana, Natacha Atlas, No Doubt and Norah Jones. If you 'get' my music taste, thats great, if I just sound complacently uncritical, nothing could be further from the truth. I will never listen to Michael Bolton, but Henry Rollins is so cool.

I love movies that take me somewhere I have never been before, whether that is emotionally or just an amazing part of the world I have never seen. The Cohen brothers, and of course Almodovar are so successful at this, as is John Woo (pre hollywood) Kurosawa and Tsui Hark. There are so many amazing directors coming out of Europe and South America, but we don't see or hear about them because the Hollywood machine just grinds over the top of them. What a shame.
The six things I could never do without
Air, water, food. Repeat as necessary.
Ok, so Friendship, intimacy and respect figure high on my list, plus of course my children.
Music, I can't believe I forgot music! I couldn't live without music every single day of my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind. Is it ok or am I wearing it out? How do I get to be in charge of the world? Is space really a limitless resource? Why I am such a smart ass, especially when I want to be taken seriously?
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at home and knitting comfortable sweaters / going out and burning down all the local barns.
Take your pick, I enjoy all of it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Try tell me it's a one for the money, two for the money, three for the money am I your Easter bunny ??? C-mon !
You should message me if
You are so bored with your life, you would like to meet someone who will make you feel great about it again (if I can find that person, of course I will introduce you to them) .
If you are slim and elegant and have a sense of style that will carry you in any situation, then you're in the ball park for me, if you're warm, kind hearted and trustworthy, you're a lot closer to the bulls-eye. I'm not saying that rotund and motherly and puffing like a whale after a brisk three minute walk is wrong, but I am saying its not for me.
I have my best ideas late at night and try to write them down, but when I read them back in the morning, they always seem a little strange. If this happens to you too, we will have something to talk about.
