All the World’s a Stage

“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players…” —- William Shakespear  And sometimes the players play in plays (films).  Here I have a video clip of me in a student film and another in a community theatre play. Two Scenes from Contrary Abettors   Scenes from Carnival (Act I) Scenes from Carnival […]

Appreciation Brings Warmth to My Life

Today, at the end of our rock climbing at Rattle Snake Point, my climbing friends gave me the book, “Mountaineering – The Freedom of the Hills” as an appreciation for my showing them the ropes outdoors.  Nice people are appreciative.  I am reminded to be more appreciative to those who have shown me the ropes in climbing and […]

Nokia Cell Phone Rocks!

I was climbing the “MacMaster” route at Rattle Snake Point yesterday.  As always, I had my Nokia cell phone in my leg pocket which was buttoned by velcro strips.  The cell phone never fell out of my pocket.  And I sometimes answered calls while on the cliff.  As you can see from the picture that […]

Rock Climbing at Niagara Escarpment; Remembering My Gay Friends

Today, after climbing at Kelso, I sat in my car in the parking lot to log the routes I had lead with traditional gear in the climbing guide book that lists the climbing routes in Ontario.  Thirteen years ago, I met a gay climber through the Crag Crux Climbers group I had started in the gay […]

Building An Igloo

“Men are needed to go to the wildness with me, this winter, to build an igloo or quinzee and sleep in it overnight.  Cold. Hard work. Danger.  These are the only promised rewards.”  I placed this ad in Manline.com on November 1, 2002, hoping to find a young, tough, adventurous mate.   A few people responded […]

Sky Diving

This experience is a birthday gift from my mother. It was in the fall of 1999. I spent the first half day on ground learning all the techniques needed for freefall diving.  The most important parts are that I need to spread my limbs to keep a flying position, to monitor the altimeter reading on my […]

Playing Water Polo

Seattle Otters had only five water polo players – some were straight – attending the IGLA 2001 tournament in Toronto.  Lisa and I, two neophytes in Toronto, joined them.  Seven players.  No substitute.  Lisa and I could barely float after the first day of the tournament.  The second day, our competing teams played us six-on-six, so […]

Portage in Algonquin Park (Sept. 6 – 10, 1993)

That day, it was cloudy, cool, and still.  I was paddling my canoe through a bog area, moving cautiously and slowly towards Big Trout Lake.  Behind me was another canoe paddled by two Americans whom I had met a couple of times on my canoeing and portaging route.  The water was shallow, just deep enough […]
