Hi, here we are, in our 50's and 60's and 70's. Many of us are now single, our children are hopefully grown and gone, our careers peaking or maybe abandoned for new careers and we're actively into the excitement of trying new things, things we couldn't do or wouldn't do when we were younger. Fortunately, OKC is sympathetic and helps us solve life's problems, even for the cougars (female and male both) among us.
A couple of misfortunes about 20 years ago revealed their silver linings and gave me a head start on this after-family life. Here on OKC and in the real world too, it is always great to find as a companion a good friend and enthusiastic lover. For a long time the women with whom I have had happy and productive relationships were generally intelligent, literate, kind, sensuous, and empathetic, sharing humor and irony. Choices are beyond size, shape or color. Widowed, with a sybaritic attitude and little value for exclusivity, I have found an open polyamorous lifestyle very suitable, with genuine long term functional and loving relationships.
Life has become more complex and interesting. Join me to savor our present?
I try to keep my life together in an ethical and constructive manner, eat and exercise to remain healthy, enjoy my family, practice Progressive politics and try to do work that enhances the community.
And I'm learning, learning, learning, always learning. Still.
Things about which I want to write.
And I've made so many mistakes and transgressions in my life; how do I do better each remaining day?
