In His Own Words

About him

Scottish by birth I have always lived in London. I have had a long career in printing and publishing, mainly book design and production, working freelance for 27 years. For years I have split my life between the Hebrides (where I own two holiday cottages) and London. As it happens I am spending more time on the Scottish West Coast but I still maintain strong links with London.
I am currently improving my holiday business despite the problems of Covid-19.. In my spare time I walk, cycle, kayak and explore a special bit of unspoiled coastline.
Apart from property management and various projects I am interested in naval history, Astronomy, Antarctica and travelling in Mediterranean countries.

My wish now is in this late fragment by Raymond Carver (1938-88)

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.

About his ideal match

No special requirements! Chemistry, hopefully! After that would come a fine way with words.
If you are curious about the world and could share some of my interests and share some of your own, that would be so welcomed, as would enjoying an occasional all-day walk or cycle ride. Other things I would love to share include: easy silences, spontaneous laughter, creative projects of value, city walks, waterside pubs and restaurants where available, taste in fine food, good wine and stimulating conversation.
