I suppose this is the place where I say a little bit about myself right?
Here’s a few things in life I enjoy:
Running: Yeah I’m one of those folks that shuffles aimlessly through city streets and parks for no apparent reason. Save that it honestly is a lot of fun. Trust me.
Climbing: Mostly indoors. It helps me stay calm and focused and I like feeling that wee bit scared.
Books: I’ll read just about anything. Some books you will find on my shelf: Paul Auster, Phillip K Dick, Jack Kerouac, Somerset Maugham, Raymond Chandler, Ian Rankin, Iain Banks, Haruki Murakami, Richard Ford, Paul Bowles, Ted Hughes, John Guare, William Fiennes…to name but a few.
Music: Generally my taste veers towards the loud. If it involves a guitar, I will be very happy. Yes, I was a teenage indie geek.
Trekking in mountains: Every summer I head off to some high ranged area. If you lived in Holland, you’d do the same, no?
Photography: I bought a camera in May 2005. It has proven to be a big distraction. Damn. Prior to this I never had a camera on me and never took much of an interest in snapping away at the world – my theory being that if you’re behind a lens then you are missing out on the actual, real-life event taking place before you and are cheating yourself of a memory. These days though I tend to assume that, when I am old and senile, I will now have a nice wee scrapbook of photos to help jog my decrepit memory. Mebbe.
What else? Well at this point I can only say stop reading this load of trivia and have a quick trawl through the site. I reckon everything you need to know about me is contained in the pages within…enjoy!
