My self-summary
READ THE PROFILE BEFORE YOU MESSAGE ME. I WROTE IT FOR A REASON.

Chronologically, the age number is right. But most people don't believe it when they meet me. I certainly don't feel it. What does a number mean? I don't know.

I changed my name since I am trying to avoid scammers.

There are various important points that I have been thinking about.

1 I almost died last September and that changes you. How exactly I don't know . Finding out as I go. It is as though most of my previous life happened a long time ago. Strange.

2 Our society now is so on overload with older women/younger men relationships. In the last while I have gone out with a couple of younger men which has been delightful. You have brought so many different things to my world which are so valuable. BUT.

BUT.

I want to settle into a relationship of mutual understanding and support. Old fashioned words come to mind, kindred spirit, soul mate. Where is this possible in this world. Cynical? No. Just realistic.

Barring that? a relationship based on an exploration of the ecstasies of hours of sex, incredible physical depths and occasional glimpses of something beyond self. If you know what I mean or are interested, let me know. How many will even read to this point?

3 Where do I want to go in my life now? Getting back to my "work" in the arts, and for travel, the South France next summer for my son's birthday and maybe Barcelona after to visit friends.

4 I have finally made a breakthrough with new poems and am excited to see where else I'll go. And Improv on my piano with my new music teacher. I have done this over the last 30 years on and off and now I want to explore more.

5 I also started swimming again. Aim? To get out of this wheelchair.
Yes, I am in a wheelchair still after 5 years due to a fall over a piece of cement left by the city. No one knows why. I can walk now quite a distance but still need it outside for distance. So beware of how you feel about this.

For now this is edition # xxx. I have met some wonderful people but still no one where it has really worked. Not yet. I am still hopeful.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing the 52 poems thing, writing a childrens' story for my grandson and attempting a novel/memoir/long poem?... yet again. I am NOT a good prose writer but still I am attacking it. With trepidation. My own art and back to the arts for social development. I have a couple of very interesting large institutions wanting to work with the program so we'll see what we can achieve this year. I will be offering 2 arts courses starting September, part of social development.

I've lived on 4 different continents from India, the Middle East to South America including Europe so I have seen a bit of life Or a lot. Who knows. Have taught, been a consultant and had my own clothing design business.

Probably the most influential year was 1987 working for a German Ministry and UNICEF in the former West Bank and Gaza, now Palestine and Gaza. An incredible year with new ways of seeing the situation there and working with a former minister of Sadaam Hussein who twisted my head and my heart.

Worked here in TO for a terrible department at .............and then 12 years "free" after having to stop work due to too much work which, after getting my pensions/finances in order has been the best time in my life.
I’m really good at
doing some interesting art with the focus on the abstract,
getting groups of people together so that it hums in the room and starting to enjoy life again.
The first things people usually notice about me
My wheelchair but that is changing.
Everything is changing I feel.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite book is Anna Karenina, movie is hard to say but it ranges from Howard's End to It's Complicated.
The six things I could never do without
A hokey question
I am too superstitious to write a list
I spend a lot of time thinking about
it depends on the day of the week i guess
or how far away i am from the last thought
On a typical Friday night I am
Well that space thing I wrote below is gonna' change like,

ah who knows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You can ask.

You can ask but...
You should message me if
YOU LIVE IN TORONTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I do not want a long distance relationship.

IF YOU HAVE NO PHOTO, I won't answer.

I am NOT interested in married men or those in a relationship.
I am NOT interested in threesomes.
I do not want to have casual sex

I DON'T LIKE DOGS SO IF YOU HAVE THEM, I AM NOT INTERESTED. THAT'S AS UPFRONT AS I CAN BE.

And I use a wheelchair for distances.

Otherwise, message me and tell me why you think we have something in common.
