About Me

I don't accept Friend Requests until you are my friend and we have met in the flesh. Now that we have cleared that up I have a serious case of Wanderlust, they found a cure for my blisters but not for the ailment!

Firstly I apologise to everyone for changing my plans so often, I am still making changes by the hour due to Covid-19.

OK, Let's Go!, London, Barcelona October 2020, make that March 2021.

Watch this space! THANKS TO THE CURRENT WORLD RESTRICTIONS IN SOME PLACES MY ITINERARY MAY HAVE TO TAKE ANOTHER PATH AT A MOMENT.

I'm a product of the 60's - my god some of you weren't born yet, excuse me if I think that I am still 21.

Before taking the path ask, Does it have a Heart?

Being an entertainer in my former life gave me the opportunity to travel extensively. Now I am revisiting places that have changed so much they are no longer the same.

I have a tolerance for people of all ages and cultures and would like to meet and befriend as many as I can before my duties on this earth expire.

PHILOSOPHY

I have been a Buddhist since 1972 when a fellow dancer from Vietnam turned me on to it - my main contribution being a non judgemental person to people of all race, creed or religion.
