A home where the Muse runs along the wood calling the poets, the writer, the artist , the musician to meet her. So, “ there is no rule there” the Muse says.

About the Host, Zoraida
I am from Caracas, Venezuela. Living in UK since 1975. Came to England then to study Economic Development in Oxford. My passion is learning and study. Since I am retired I live with Nicholas, my husband , most of the year in our home in Italy. I am currently working hard every day at my German , even when my memory does not help me much.
I am a very active person. I was in the teaching profession ( from Primary to University level). I love sharing with people what ever I learn and always ready to learn from them too. I enjoy writing, classic music, theatre, opera, concerts, learning languages, cooking, eating, gardening, sewing, ironing, walking, travelling and share all of these with my lovely husband. I live in a continuous spare time so whatever I do is for pleasure. One of my great pleasure is to sit and write for hours on end in my computer. I enjoy very much the world of the Internet and try to be updated all the time. It is for me a mean of knowledge, research and use of languages. Thanks to the Internet I can follow closely what my five stars ( three lovely daughters and two granddaughters) are doing in their professions as well as in life. Or seeing the photos of how my youngest granddaughter and her first child. So am already a young great-grandmother.
I wake up looking forward to enjoy the day with the beauty that life has offered me . So, every day for me, is shorter than the one before. It is so much to do and so many new projects ahead. That is why time for me does not exist for me, I make it.
My only religion is to do well and give lights to those in need.
