A bit about me...:
I suspect I might not be alone in wanting to make contact with people who feel increasingly isolated in the margins of a global culture whose values they do not share. So primarily I’m looking for kindred spirits and friendship ... but I'm also looking for a true soul mate; a fellow traveller; someone I can trust who shares some of my beliefs, values and interests.

I'd describe myself as tactile, caring, tidy, frugal and reflective; more giver than taker. I'm not competitive. Others have said I'm loyal, sincere and kind; an ideas man; resourceful, organised and professional. Although I can be technical and practical, I'm also creative and spiritual – you might call me a Taoist or a pantheist. I love trees and dislike TV. I prefer to live slowly and simply. So, for example, I'm car-free out of choice and I don't have a mobile phone. In fact I'd say I was 'machine averse' and more than a little sceptical about the actual idea of Progress itself.
