Who is Mike eh Toronto?
Hi everyone! (Trying hard not to sound like Dr. Nick from the Simpsons.) You may know me as “Mike_eh_Toronto” on Twit – er X, and this is my latest blogging venture. I’ve owned newmediaMike for a long time now, when it came up for renewal this year I decided to repurpose it for a personal blog/vlog. This will be a multi-media project, incorporating writing, videos, images and sound recordings. I will document my story and share my experience, hope and strength with other CSA survivors and members of #RecoveryPosse. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Now that I’m in a creative mood it was the perfect time.
The content for the blog/vlog will be based on the various boxes on my home page. Which coincides with the areas of my life. When I first sobered up in ’86 I imagined my life as a triangle of physical-emotional-spiritual within the circle of the fellowship of AA. Today it’s six boxes and counting!
OK, that's great, but, WHO is Mike eh Toronto?
Ahh, WHO am I? I’m a brother, a cousin, a friend, a neighbour and a car nut. I have been a big car fan for as long as I can remember. Cars, trucks. If it’s got wheels, I like it!
I’m also a very rusty ballroom dancer, with dances like the waltz, foxtrot, rhumba, Argentine Tango, bachata, merengue, salsa and jive gathering dust in my brain.
Where did Mike_eh_Toronto come from?
My Twitter name is my clever way of being anonymous and letting people know where I’m from. Plus, my last name starts with an A. By the way, when pronouncing Toronto, the second T is silent. Torono.
