and gathering place of the healers and teachers in my life. 

As a hermit, the above statements are unusual.  

As a senior over 71, who could not walk or talk upon joining Empire Avenue (a few short months ago) the praise I have for this wee game is nothing short of taking out a page in the New York Times. 

When, some folks found out I was challenged by the basics in life….they ran missions to help me learn and grow.  When other folks found out I am Canadian they coached and supported me…as they are the inspiration for players all across Canada.  

 I can from the comfort  of my walker….tour Dubai with Rami Kantari (e)RAMIKANTARI http://www.empireavenue.com/ramikantari or sit on a great front porch with (e)WTWY“s http://www.empireavenue.com/wtwy Mott.  (Here is a peak from his front porch .http://wp.me/paK5s-7gu
