I also enjoy more physical pursuits, like sailing. Since I was a kid I have sailed locally, throughout the Mediterranean, across the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal, and up the coast of Mexico back home. So, yeah, I like travelling as well, including lengthy stays in Thailand and India.
Really love animals too, but alas, I am currently petless. Maybe you have a cat?
Well, that's me in a nutshell. A pretty mixed bag of nuts it is. Basically, I value an open mind, broad experience, and a sense of wonder.

Been working for awhile. Going to take some time off soon to travel and just enjoy. Drawing. Painting. Getting drunk and posting pictures of cats.
*Update* I am now "just enjoying". Staying in a cabin on the sunshine coast, trying to figure out how to make it work here. Make it back to town about once a month.
There is actually some truth to both of these.
Sure, I like pretty much everything that Wes Anderson and Woody Allen put out, but it is impossible for me to deny the influence that both Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark have had on me. I actually think they are critically underrated. All these creators share a sense of wonder about the world which I love.
The musical landscape seems so vast, but constants for me are Sonic Youth, The Velvet Underground, Johnny Cash, Neil Young and Jack White. New favourites include Besnard Lakes, Grimes and Hannah Georgas. Currently, I am really enjoying the Buddy Holly cover album, Rave On. Artists include the Black Keys, Modest Mouse, Lou Reed and John Doe. Worth a listen.
Also, could getting a cat replace my desire for a partner?
*Update* now I have the greatest dog in the world, still thinking about getting a cat and now realize neither will replace a partner. Need it all.
