Liverpool born but been in NZ for 40 years after a bit of globe trotting. Just retired and loving it. Live at a tiny beach with the Tararua mountains just behind the nearby town of Levin. Was lucky to learn years ago that whatever happens in life, we're free to choose our attitude. Have enjoyed tramping (hiking) much of my life but not really feasible now. Still enjoy the beach. Want to get back into gardening. Enjoy house renovation, music and laughing. Have sung for years but find it difficult to hold a tune now. Always been an activist and still am, only slower lol. Recently quit smoking after 50 years and already breathing easier but not fooling myself. Am a Spiritualist so believe in God but without any dogma. Believe in the ongoing development of the human Soul, so not afraid of passing through the veil when my time comes.
