My superpower is: creepy, incredible intuition
If I could live anywhere, it would be: Paris or South of France, Australia or the Greek Islands
My dream job(s): Costume Director, Editor for a great publishing company, curator, textile designer, a job where I could travel work and see the area.
What else you should know about me: I try to see other points of view. I believe that our world is in grave danger. I have 2 dogs, Ralph and Leo2, 2 grandchildren. I love to travel and wish I could afford to see more of the word. I don't believe that the great religions have followed their noble beginnings but rather become instruments of war and death and judgement instead of peace, life and tolerance.
It rains 180 days a year where I live, probably more. I miss my home. I am a compulsive reader and can finish a 800 page book in about 6-8 hours.
