In His Own Words

About him

Farewell winter solstice I gladly celebrate your passing. Welcome 2022. Now I choose to follow a new non-magnetic North, on/off with the wellies! Farewell, very strange year (going, going..! Now come back soon is my plea for the distant summer's sunshine. Not a creature of the cold, I have worked away from British Winters. (Hooray) Sunshine seems to refresh ideas and energize. So here's to optimism and new friendships that may offer sunshine as the seasons turn.



Me? A performing arts advisor, musician, and embarrassingly awful cook. (I do try!) Irish parents, I grew up in, Penang, Malaysia. The sunshine beckoned when I became a teacher. Now? I have spent so long in South East Asia, as I settle back in the UK, I am used more to Sambal for breakfast than Porridge.

Have a spontaneous outlook on life. Adore playing harmonica, and guitar at the local Folk Club. - Which is about to reopen. Initially friendship matters. I have no 'shopping list'. Everything is possible, so if you have one, sorry I am the wrong person for you. Then? Serendipity decides. A natural bias for people who seek solutions over blame. Excited by art, travel cultural diversity, warmth, who enjoys a glass of red wine, and who can celebrate the moment. Not much really. :)


 A feral accomplice able to distract from another Winter in wellies would make what remains of 2021 a spectacular year.

So, influenced by Black Adder's Baldrick, my cunning plan is as follows; to grow old but not up, focus on solutions, and positive people. Still disorganized since back from a lifetime teaching overseas, (truly working on it:) but conscious the process would be infinitely more fun with another. Sunshine come back. Here's to the tilt of the earth in the right direction, reminding myself never just to passively see, but to actively seek.

About his ideal match

Infinite! Perhaps, everything my guitar and Harmonica playing needs to explore; melodic, fluid, complex, emotionally uplifting, dexterous, easy on the ear, the eye and able to reach parts excluded by the rest of the universe. Ho hum. California Dreamin on a winters day. Peace!
