. . .and again Wed 18 Sep, 2013
Firstly, I am now at least ten kilograms (that's over twenty pounds) lighter than that photo, and am pleased to brag about it. It's taken me less time than I thought possible. Now to update the photo....
I get a bit tired of being treated as freakish when I say I am polyamorous, but I'm not just looking for a Friend with Benefits. Poly is choices, not obligations. Through medical necessity my one partner and I can no longer have sex. We have have been together for over thirty years, and that's not likely to change, but I can be a staunch friend, accepting who you are. An additional partnership is unlikely, but definitely not out of the question. Neither is the FwB. It's just not what I'm here about at the moment. I am looking for Friends. Strange as it may seem,women and men CAN be "just good friends", Try it, you'll be surprised at how well we can get on whilst fully clothed!
I've never been impressed by money, or those who have it. It's not what you have, but what you do that's important. I've done lots of unimportant but interesting stuff, like building small dinghys and sailing boats, been a woolclasser, taught hand spinning and macrame, played drums and trombone (not at the same time) in a zillion jazz bands in the fifties, worked as a technical writer in an airline, and several South Australian State Government positions, leaped out of an aeroplane at four thousand feet, (once), studied and practiced massage and several other healing modalities, studied witchcraft seriously from the outside (I'll explain that if you like), accepted polyamory as lifestyle choice, had two boys by two different women (the second I am still with after over thirty years), had a vasectomy, had a stroke which almost missed me last year, but I didn't duck quickly enough, and a heart attack whilst waiting for a new hip. I've also been on and off amateur stages since 1964, have had two or three stories published in various journals, and written one play which has been performed a couple of times, and given blood to the Red Cross spasmodically over forty years. I've also just purchased a ukulele to help the fingers of my left hand recover from the stroke. If I keep this up, I'll have to reach the ton (100 yrs) in order to achieve what I want to. And that's only with the body I've got now!
