Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to the Bruce Peninsula, Lion's Head, actually, left the
city. Living a simpler life and basking in it. If you spend time up
here give me a shout! I'm retired, worked for myself in the arts.
And I still live in the arts. I spend a lot of time hiking the
Bruce trail - it's amazing standing at the edge of a bluff with a
long view, biking country roads, drawing, dreaming, reading,
writing, skating, back country camping, canoeing, getting together
with friends to sing. I love to dance and lately I've found
ecstatic dance so body and soul satisfying. I practice yoga. The
ebb and flow of things coming back into my day to day and letting
other things be on pause for a bit is a rhythm I like. I'm
interested in clear and empathic communication, honesty required,
sharing massages, affection junkie, moved by generosity, passive
solar houses, being healthy and fit, leaving a small foot print,
going local, CBC radio, left leaning.
Eating tomatoes, chard, potatoes and beets from my garden,
X-country skiing deep into silent winter woods is magical.

creatively, cooking with cilantro, having pot lucks with friends
and neighbours, being in any kind of weather, eating from my
garden, building stuff, making things, getting involved in local
environment issues, letting people know what I'm thinking, making
connections, making silence, making plans.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next project. Meeting someone who wants to spend time up north.
Food, trees, wild flowers, arousal, wind turbines (there's three
way off in the distance that I see from my kitchen window. It makes
me feel hopeful for the future).
