Which historical figure do you most identify with?

Maeth: Imhotep. He was an exceptional crossbreed between science and spirituality being an architect, a surgeon and a priest. Rarely both sides of the brain work at the same time like that.

Paul: Right now I really admire what Jeremy Corbyn is trying to do to bring a little bit of compassion and empathy back to the country.

Maeth: cowardice. It’s unforgivable.

Paul: Jealousy

What is your favorite journey?

Maeth: astral projections. Any time.

Maeth: material richness because money doesn’t really exist, it’s just a delusional tool to empower people to harm others most of the times somehow.

Paul: Any materialistic driven one

Which words or phrases do you most overuse? .

Maeth: some swearwords I’m sure you wouldn’t be happy to read here.

Paul: I told you I was right 😉

What is your greatest regret?

Maeth: Not having put to sleep one of my dogs when it was time. I waited for a few days more and she went just a few minutes before I was back home alone. I’ll never forgive myself for that. I genuinely thought she could have lived longer, yet still I know I should have let her go.

Paul: I have no regrets they are pointless

What is your current state of mind?

Maeth: detached from the world, rather aloof. A bit of a Major Tom hovering in space. Lots going on (mostly  nice stuff though!).

Paul: Happy and pensive

 If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?

Maeth: nothing. It is ok as it is with its natural ups and downs that make it real. However, if you mean the family I come from, I wish my parents were less unstable.

Paul: we would be closer (geographically) together

What is your most treasured possession?

Maeth: my Familiar (dog). I also have ancient family jewels but there’s no comparison. The dog always wins.

Paul: I am happy where I am (on the beautiful Yorkshire East Coast) but f I was to move it would have to be still coastal and probably warmer climate wise.

What is your favorite occupation?

Maeth: Artist. And by artist I don’t mean only musician. Even building my fountain in the garden is part of me being an artist. Anything that unleashes creativity in the mind is arts for me. Art is the fingerprint of my soul.

Paul: Creative

 What is the quality you most like in a man?

Maeth: a loyal and kind heart, paired with acute intelligence and a dominant sexual nature. Basically the one who can respect the lady, fuck the whore and protect the little kid in me. Sorry I couldn’t have put this in a clean way without losing the emphasis.

Paul: Loyalty and humour

What is the quality you most like in a woman?

Maeth: same as above, minus the sexual nature because I am straight.

Paul: Curves 😉

Maeth: Fiore, my Familiar’s name. It means Flower in Italian.
