I currently work as a complaints investigator in a government service, which is more interesting than it sounds.
The trick was, to get them both relaxed and laughing by the end of the call.
I've played guitar since I was 15, and like to compose and record my own music, when I have the time.
I've had my first two books published (one non-fiction, one fiction).
I'm getting notes together for the next about the birth of life and the development of civilisation on this planet.
But I intend to take a wacky look at it, and try to get humour into everything. It might end up as a novel.
I use this as an excuse to walk the hills and travel to far away places. - It's research, darling, honest!
And lastly, I'm looking for the secret of existence, and the universe. And I _will_ find it.
"A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson
"Cosmos" and "The Demon Haunted World" by Carl Sagan.
Anything by Terry Pratchett and Robert Heinlein.
Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Vaughan Williams, Liquid Tension Experiment, Good Rock, Prog Metal.
The Abyss, Contact, Lucy, others too numerous to mention.
Walking in the world
Time to create
Curiosity, daring, non-conformism, intellectual stimulation.
(We don't need to mention the rest do we;-)
I need someone who will explore a castle with me, walk hand-in-hand through the countryside, discuss the shape of the universe, get excited at Christmas crackers, cuddle up in the evening and pretend no-one else exists in the world except us two.
I am not looking for:
A soap-watcher, a boozer, a time-waster, a flirt.
I'm just looking for my equal, my soul-mate, my destiny.
(-I can't believe I just wrote that.)
I hope you haven't been put off -
Write anyway..... Seriously, everyone needs mates!
And if you really want to get my attention then answer this question:
If all forms of love - romantic, parental, altruistic - come from a common source (as Shakespeare maintained) then what could that source possibly be?
