My self-summary
Eccentric, sometimes thoughtful person. Writer, and artist, disabled (cerebral palsy) folk-absurdist-punk, avant-garde, occasional conjurer or maker of things. Film and arts guy. I chat, wonder, wander, and create. I'm always keen to make new connections. Seeking a magically tuneful and harmoniously odd understanding, if we're lucky. All of oneself cannot be described here, of course.

"Girl be sellin' sunshine/lookin' so fine" :) hehe

It would be cool to do arty things with a like-minded possibly you. And if it's at all possible that you are you, say hello.

General believer in people and well-wisher for folks to do well and be themselves, I think. Often offers ramblings to random people on here, because why and because why not?

I try to be reasonably intelligent, open-minded, liberal, fun, kind, honest. I try to be lots of things - the intention is there, to be achieved with good regularity.

I have a sense of humour a sense of whimsy, an ickle bit of cute I like wonderful, magical and nice things.

I love most bits of life, and some/lots of people.

I studied Film Studies and Arts Management at a uni then I went to study Film again. I "teach"/"lead" workshops.

I like art, writing, poetry, coffee, music, cultural life, movies,conversation, magic realism, travel, philosophy, animation,silliness, humour, friends, fun, music, compiling playlists, chocolate and joy.

Spraypaint the vegetables.

I like urban, city life, spontaneous croissants, and visiting National Trust properties! :)
What I’m doing with my life
A semi-professional artist writer, poet and artist. I know a few things in life, and a lot more to learn, from people. I like to travel, and have travelled to a lot of places around Europe.

I like to go to any arts events and meet up to scribble and doodle in cafes. Oftenf found with a notebook at least nearby. I do enjoy chatting and exchanging correspondance. I've admired magic realist artists. I like Russian art, animation and poetry and works in translation from all around the world. I like to drink in the innovations and atmospherics of a good Nintendo videogame and anything new to me.

I'm a Magritte looking for a piece of sky or my Georgette from a curtained window, but I also would like to meet like minded friends inside a Christmas cracker. Also to just chat and share things we like mindedly and different mindedly think are cool.
I’m really good at
Having patience, I'm told (a requirement for digital art) By now, I might be quite okay in my hobby of writing and performance and am making a career of teaching people about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm shy and a little/really quite nervous at first, and not even just at first but in varying degrees for all time, but also lively and fun and enjoy small pleasures and occasionally the finer things in life.

Not to put to fine a point on it, as I don't self-identify, but I'm a disabled sometime wheelchair user, which can be fun and makes life interesting!

Six things I could never do without
My family,
there are more than six of them :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a daily basis? I like to be silly. I know that life's important, but I also enjoy the silliness of it.

Quoting "The Simpsons"

Pop culture but in I hope quite an interesting way - why such and such a thing/actress/actor is good, the business side, etc. Videogames in a similar way but I basically don't play them but like atmospheres and aesthetics.

Stuff I've read.
On a typical Friday night I am
It'd be cool to meet someone to liven up my pleasantly relaxed Fridays - generally watching something like a film or something like Breaking Bad, Ripper Street or The News Room, or Community, maybe with an ale or European lager.
You should message me if
If, after all this nonsense, you want to. I like talking nonsense, and being silly. I believe there are different ways of making meaning, beyond the most boring ones like "making sense". Drop me a line even if your just bored and would like to chat - that's cool.

I would like to meet new people to enjoy cultural life with, and to share outlooks on life, smiles, ideas, and knowledge. I like to have nice conversations, and share similar and varied tastes and celebrating similarities and awesome differences. Someone wise, strong, independent, and with their own coolness - someone who's genuinely "good people", as they might say in New York (never been!) to talk about everything and while away moments that may indeed become hours. I just tend to like making new connections, and collaborating in this wide world. If I make new friends on here that would be totally awesome.
The two of us
