I'm 59, currently not in a one to one relationship, but I have no wish to grow old alone


I'm a simple stay at home sort of person ~ though I love the odd party, who enjoys listening to music ( 50's - 80's modern music and classical ), good food ( I'm a trained chef ), and watching movies on the tv in front of a fire ~ but only when I've got someone to share the experience with.

I do however also enjoy feeding the birds, walking in nature, visiting archeological sites, galleries and museums.

I used to enjoy traveling around Europe ~ though I haven't been able to for a while due to my late wife's poor health. I'd like to start doing so again, but not on my own.
I'm fairly fluent in French, though I should probably try harder with my English.

I'm not religious, though I would like to think that I am spiritual ~ and tolerant.
I practice Taiji ( Tai Chi ) as a hobby and a means of maintaining my health, and the Japanese art of Iaido ( a meditational form of swordsmanship ~ the saying goes that most races are only interested in getting a sword out of the scabbard and using it... the Japanese however are more concerned about sheathing the blade correctly ).

Now I'm getting bored with talking about myself.

Recently took myself off to Peru for a couple of weeks ( yes, I know ~ the end of a very low carbon footprint )... but wow!

What a lot to take in. Condors, Lake Titicaca, Machu Piccu, hummingbirds, great traveling companions, and so much more in between. I had a marvelous time, recommend it to anyone.

I know times are hard, but even a few bucks helps in the fight against multinationals taking the piss ~ if only because they get the idea that some of us care enough to fight them.

    Cor! Worn out.... it's going to take me 60 years to get over this amazing week.

    The Phantom of the Opera was wonderful. The tea at the Athenaeum Hotel was to die for. The pub crawl that I've been taken on went on for far too long!

    Thank you all for the Birthday wishes. The eCards. Everyone who showed up at Her Majesty's Theatre, those who swamped me with presents... to say nothing of the enormous amount of chocolates ~ I know I'm fond of the stuff, but I'll be eating them for months!

    Can I just say a big Thank You to everyone who has sent me a green star, and offer my apologies if I didn't get around to thanking you in person.

    I do try to get onto the Care2 site regularly, but sometimes I either don't have the time... or I'm a bit too tired to go through all the star messages.

    Trust me though they are greatly appreciated. I tend to use Butterfly credits to give clean water... to my mind it is the most essential human need of all.

    Thanks to everyone who added a cup of decent drinking water to someones life.
