My self-summary
IF YOU ARE NOT IN TORONTO????? SORRY BUT A RELATIONSHIP IS NOT POSSIBLE.
NO PHOTO??? THE SAME
NO INFO? DITTO

AND PLEASE I DO NOT, I REPEAT, I DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD. I AM NOT RELIGIOUS.

and to verify who you are, a Skype phone call at the beginning is a "must". too many problems without it.

DON'T WASTE YOU TIME. SAVE IT FOR SOMEONE ELSE
I changed my name since I am trying to avoid scammers. Big problem online with them and once they get their claws in, hard to get them off. I'll see if this name change helps.

Now 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. It is a very difficult boat to row. In the last while I have gone out with a couple of much younger men which has been delightful. You have brought so many different things to my world which are so valuable. BUT.
BUT.
There seem to be so many differences between us which causes great misunderstandings.
So if you are one of those with whom I do become friends or go out with or whatever..... PLEASE be aware of this. If you are much younger than I am, please think about what it is you really want. And why and of possible complications. There is so much to be gained for each of us: new understandings of self, of the world, of the past, the future. I am trying to be honest here and ask for some thought and communication on this topic. (I wonder if stating this will make any difference?)
And if you are an older male wondering why this penchant for younger men, it is because I feel many of the men my age have certain expectations of women that just are too old fashioned in terms of women and what we are capable of.

3 Where do I want to go in my life now? Getting back to my "work" in the arts.South France next summer for my son's birthday.

4 I have finally made a breakthrough with new poems and am excited to see where else I'll go.

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 on one side of a tree planter. I didn't see it and fell on my face. Ensuing problems with balance occurred which led to a second fall 6 months later which led to problems with balance. No one knows why. I can walk now quite a distance inside but still need it outside. 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.
