Sorry - I've eaten the piece of paper it was written on.
Always interested in meeting people and like the idea of offering something to travellers and to pay back the generosity I have encountered during my own travels over the years.
I am a born again cyclist and always have at least one spare bike and will be happy to take a trip into the New Forest or along some of the coastal paths near here if time permits.
I love conversation - even when it becomes discussion which could even verge on argument. Fortunately, I have the ability to passionately disagree with people and still like them so I welcome people with any views.
Everything is a dangerous drug except reality, which is unendurable. Happiness is in the imagination. What we perform is always inferior to what we imagine; yet day-dreaming brings guilt; there is no happiness except through freedom from Angst, and only creative work, communion with nature and helping others are Angst-free

Music, Movies, and Books
Interested in practically anything except trash and I define what is trash entirely whimsically.
Like most people I have an affection for the music that formed the soundtrack for my early adult life. In my case that was The Blues, Dylan and English Folk.
I also continue to find new music I like all the time and love being introduced to something I haven't heard before.
I am attempting to become "debauched by reason" so read quite a lot of non-fiction. My particular interest at the moment is evolutionary psychology. Novels are a constant too and I like too many authors to name.
Movies is a tricky one. It is my business to some extent so I have thought about it quite a lot. I think it needs to be defined more precisely. I suppose I have a preference for human stories. With some exceptions, I am not a big fan of violent films, horror or romantic comedies.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Impossible to answer - many of them still continue,
Teach, Learn, Share
Always happy to swap film making, photography or guitar playing tricks. I can even be tempted to share ideas about life and how it should be lived as long as everyone agrees not to take me too seriously.
