Like most people.. long story getting here. Hmmmm.. Small town up bringing ( northern New Brunswick).. big city formative ( Toronto ages 18-28 ) lots of travel (45?? countries) 2 degrees (Arts. Education) 2 diplomas ( Fine Arts/ Theater and Home Reno Tech). Some foreign work.. Austria, Hong Kong, Malaysia.

Kicked the can as an independent writer/ director/ producer of theater/ film/ video for years. But paid the bills for many more years doing construction and home reno work. Many gigs as a teacher (Acting classes, English Second Language) Been an auto worker with Chrysler since 2005.

Trained as an actor out of school ( class of '79) and generally followed a humanities path after that. I find the world can be overwhelmingly cruel at times but overall.. I like people.

Have you ever been given a true "surprise" party? I haven't.. but went through the effort of giving a friend one.. complete with a "down memory lane" video. She hated it.. burst into tears and literally ran away. She was 37. I felt horrible. Fucked with my head for a bit. :(

Good Saturday morning! Let's talk about legends of the area or town you grew up in.
Davekp comments on Dec 7, 2019:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glooscap In my area I was told about Glooscap.. the creater connected to the Mi'kmaq tribe. From my town one can see a line of hills on the Gaspe peninsula in Quebec. From certain angles the hills line up to give the appearance of a sleeping giant.. Glooscap sleeping on his back. I've taken several pics over the years.. none have been as affective as standing there looking at it. lol

Depends whats wrong and how much pain is involved. If it's excrutiating and immediate.. like a dental issue.. my attitude I'm sure can be one of derangement. If it's more of a long term, ongoing physical or emotional issue I tend to be more laissez faire.. more or less patient.. let the system work itself out. Up to a point of course. lol

Gratitude?
Davekp comments on Nov 30, 2019:
I tend to be grateful for my realities .. as opposed to acts of help and kindness from others that can illicit gratitude. I am grateful or count myself fortunate for all manner of things.. my relatively good health, my general lot in life concerning employment and home life, the luxury of my education..etc. Gratitude I think is a little different. I feel gratitude when another has taken time from their day to think or act in a kind and helpful way towards me. It's rare.. but it does happen. People are too busy or wrapped up in their lives to reach out. So being grateful for my overall situation can lift my boat even at low tide. :)

Keep your answers short and to the point. Remember to breathe when you are NOT the one talking. Prepare 2 or 3 questions you want to ask. If they are talking it cuts down the amount of time you have to lead the conversation. Get to the point of arranging your face to face meeting sooner than later. Good luck :)

Some observations about sexual relationships.
Davekp comments on Nov 26, 2019:
Assumptions are just that.. guessing. It’s my thinking that even though I have much more experience at 58 than at 20.. every new partner is a completely different animal. My experience gives me confidence.. not the knowledge of my new partner that will ensure her enjoyment of our sex. Using toys is a good example.. I may be very good at using certain things.. if she doesn’t like them.. c’est la vie.. back to square one.
These double standards have to stop.

What do you think of the concept of "accepting that you're broken.
Davekp comments on Nov 21, 2019:
I guess accepting that I'm "broken" in some way is more than a little self defeating. Maybe recognizing things about me and my life that need attention and self care might be a more positive way to approach my seeming life issues.. As to finding a partner that is in some way as "broken" as yourself (or myself) again feels inherently the wrong way to approach a new relationship.I get that birds of a feather flock together. but .. the blind leading the blind isn't a highly recommended strategy for promoting progress in.. anything. I guess it depends on how each person is struggling.. is it physical. emotional. mental? I've always found it helpful when my partner has strengths that compliment my weaknesses and vice versa.
Happy Wednesday, everyone.

❀️You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your ...
Davekp comments on Nov 19, 2019:
"Life" shaking you and being bumped and spilling coffee are not the same thing. I get the analogy or metaphor or whatever other word you wish to use to equate the two but it is far too simplistic to be helpful.. Spilling a little coffee compared to.. say.. learning your child has incurable bone cancer.. and then saying you need to face both with a Buddha type zen smile is not only completely a PollyAnna reaction but does a complete negation of how a person deals with the latter scenario. Spilling coffee.. sure. easy to laugh off. A dying child.. not so much. Each moment has it's realities. Each moment must be allowed its own emotional outcome. This is the problem with most philosophical platitudes. No offence meant to your post.. just my opinion :)

Great article. Absolutist language used to really frustrate me in moments of conflict with my ex. Her language frequently referred to things in absolute terms.. " you ALWAYS do this" or "You NEVER do that". It just stopped any forward progress in trying to deal with a serious emotional issue.

Favorite songs from 1969. I loved Na, Na, Hey, Hey from Steam. Any of your faves on this list?
Davekp comments on Nov 17, 2019:
Ok.. look at that list of songs.. play fragments in your mind of the ones you know.. then think of Eleanor Rigby. Such a vastly unique song.. all the others are genre pieces.. the Motown sound. for example, Pop or Rock.. "Eleanor" is so far out in left field in comparison it's like it dropped from another planet.

What do you all think of my answer to why women can't wear latex everyday? [quora.com]
Davekp comments on Nov 17, 2019:
I think your answer about latex was completely changed when you added the boots and the gloves. You went from answering a question about wearing what would be a piece of clothing to walking around all day in full on fetish gear. Not the same thing. You answered a question that wasn't asked. Just my opinion, of course, to the question that was asked. lol Check here. https://nylon.com/how-to-wear-latex-clothing :)

Hello everyone, my name is Charles.
Davekp comments on Nov 17, 2019:
Hey Charles.. welcome to this group and to the site in general. For someone who had a difficult time getting through their grade school education your writing is exceptionally clear and well organized. You obviously have a talent for expressing yourself "on paper" as we used to say. lol Do you write fiction or anything? Short stories, poetry.. etc. The rumination or racing mind as you put it seems to be a common problem in todays stressed out, over hyped world. Slowing down to do some meditation or slow type physical activity like yoga or Tai Chi can help significantly if you can get in the habit of disconnecting from your routine and giving yourself time and space to "float" a little. but.. send me a message if you ever feel like chatting. I'm up for it :)

There is no such thing as "new money".. it is all debt.
I'll get the ball rolling.
Davekp comments on Nov 16, 2019:
Wish I had an answer for you. All I can say is on-line dating is chaos. Anyone's best bet, I feel. is still to be active and try to meet people in person.. however you go about accomplishing that. But I'm a bit confused.. the women you describe.. are they "attractive to you".. like.. you like this type of women.. or.. they are "attracted to you".. like these are the women who contact you? And you want to know what to do differently to NOT attract the rough looking, smoking, stupid t-shirt wearing candidate. If that's the case.. refine your bio profile on your sites to reflect not only what you are looking for but also what you are not looking for. It's entirely legitimate to say , "Smokers need not apply".. or something like that. :)

An interesting list.
Davekp comments on Nov 12, 2019:
I have never read the book so I can't attest to it being great literature. Nor have I seen a version of the film so I can't say whether the story is helped or hurt by being cinematic.. but it is my understanding that the fictional character, Lolita, is not prepubescent which makes it hebephilia not pedophilia.. either way underage by western legal norms.. with obvious exceptions in the American south where some states still allow "child brides" under certain circumstances. But isn't all love an obsession at some point and on some level? I don't think anyone enters love being lackadaisical about it. We all get a bit unhinged at the beginning. Partnership and knowledge start to occur when feet return to the ground. I think it's interesting to note that almost 20 people have viewed the post.. and some rather opinionated people as well.. and only 1 comment ( besides mine.. now) Does it show just how taboo the Lolita subject is.. even among "free thinkers" such as ourselves? Some damn heavy reading on that list , though. lol
