I like diversity in people, research and the weather, I like to break habits and snap dry twigs, I like having no internet access, I like wind mills and rows of knotted willows. I like to make sense of conversation.
I run and cycle, and I love to hike in Scotland. I like to play guitar and listen to metal, or to the soundtrack of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Perhaps the reason some people do not live by their ideals is that they think the only reason for doing so would be to change the world.
