Colour, creed, sex, sexuality...these are but part of a whole. It is the whole that counts.
I am a retired librarian. A fairly well-known poet, I have also tried my hand at fiction and published several novels Howeve, I rwite mostly for the sheer enjoyment it gives me and do not aspire to fame and fortune (probably just as well). As I also suffer from regular bouts of depression, writing is also a therapy for me and keeps me from falling into the abyss. I have a good sense of humour and, especially in latter years, take the ups and downs of life with a pinch of salt. I do not have a partner and am not looking for a relationship but get on well with most people so it is always a delight to meet and make new friends.
