older than i remember being, less hair than i had, more white in my beard than is necessary. I live with my angel and soulmate along with my annoyingly talented son and daughter.

Current Residence: ZZ9 PLURAL Z ALPHA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: not big, not small so it'll have to be medium
Print preference: using potatoes
Favourite genre of music: life is far too short to limit myself to 1 type of music. On shuffle my iPod could come out with a folk track followed by heavy metal, a waltz, 80's electro and then 30's jazz.
Favourite photographer: david bailey and ansel adams
Favourite style of art: same as music, life should be about more than imposing limits
Operating System: mac osx, xp, windows 7
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Shell of choice: from a beach with the sound of the sea trapped inside - close your eyes and listen carefully
Wallpaper of choice: none, free painted walls with hand painted bees, spiders, fairies etc
Skin of choice: my own, it fits so well (in most places)
Favourite cartoon character: marvin the martian
Personal Quote: if you're absolutely certain you know the answer then you probably didn't understand the question.

Yesterday I needed to be somewhere but I was unable to go.

There has to be someone, at some point in your life there has to be someone who has an affect.
It may take years to realise who they were or are, hopefully you discover it was them while they are around.

But there has to be someone to influence who you are, to set a standard, an example.
Someone you want to be worthy of, who you use as a measure - a yard stick.

There has to be someone who by their acts, words or values makes you see the meaning of being true.
They may never know that they were the one, the someone, that gave you an insight to the real meaning of being human.

Being strong but not brutal, caring but not soppy, true but not rigid, faithful but not dogmatic.

Yesterday I needed to go to the funeral of my someone.
The headmaster of my primary school passed away. He was a true giant of a man.
The kind of headmaster they don't make anymore.

Not a manager with his eye on league tables or kpi's.

Every autumn he helped the kids plant daffodils around the school grounds so they could see that what you do will have results.
It was up to you if the results were positive or not.

He taught us lessons we never knew we were having - integrity, strength of character, honesty, passion

He remembered all who he been at his school years after they had left and grown up

My reason for no making it was one I know Mr. Jones would have understood and agreed with. But I wish I'd made it.

Yesterday I needed to be somewhere but I was unable to go.
