yourself in five words?
Honest, tired, thoughtful, guilty, lost
the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
and meet gay people
the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever done?
Had unprotected sex without a condom
your most treasured possession?
Teddy, I got him when I was one and he's still at the top
of my cupboard
you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Having no choice
have any strange hobbies?
Dreaming up stories of visiting other planets before I fall asleep
you dislike most about your appearance?
I'm too thin and I have a curved spine
your greatest extravagance?
Cigarettes and alcohol
you got in your fridge?
Some milk, the leftovers from last night's supper of potato
and lacto, a battery, packets of dried yeast, half a bottle of mayonnaise,
meat for the dog, borehole water
your greatest fear?
That the situation in Zimbabwe will never recover
you got in your pockets right now?
A bit of used tissue
your favourite journey?
Going to Barbara Vitoria's house
your heroes in real life?
My mother of course. In the development field, there's Peter
and Hedi Kuthan. Some of the composers I admire are Klaus Hollinetz,
Werner Puntigam, Peter Androsch, and Pierre Boulez (plus a lot of
dead ones). Amongst the activists are Mandela, Derek Matyszak, Ghandi,
Bev Clark and Brenda Burrell, Zackie Achmat, Edwin Cameron, Desmond
Tutu, Marc Epprecht, Tor-Hugne Olsen, WOZA, ZLHR, Lynde Francis,
Tony Reeler, Roger Stringer, Cary Johnson and others . . .
where were you happiest?
1 September, 1997, the day I walked into the GALZ office to take
over the position of Programmes Manager for GALZ.
your biggest vice?
Smoking and drinking
you like at school?
Timid and withdrawn
you doing next?
I'm going to check the rest of my emails and then I'm
going home to work on my violin concerto
