I spend a lot of my time in the bush, near creeks, rivers, watering holes and rock formations. I like to camp, listen to music, either on my battery powered boombox or with my walkman, under the stars by a campfire.
I make mixed cassette tapes specifically for these rituals.
I love not seeing evidence of humanity for miles and miles, this has a huge impact on me.
I identify quite strongly with various forms of paganism and animalism, the latter especially as a means to remain connected with indigenous Australian pre-Christian culture, personally I value virtues such as honour, trust, loyalty, strength, resilience and doubt, without these attributes chances are we won't get along.
I'm an avid reader of fantasy/sci-fi fiction too, especially anything related to the Warhammer franchise, doubly especial if it involves dwarf content.
I worship music, it means the world to me, without which I think life would be quite meaningless, specifically I'm an unashamed "metalhead" and self-described oathkeeper, I support bands and individuals that keep the old ways alive, especially those that put new twists to the old ways but just as much I praise those that don't care to progress and instead strip it down to it's core.
