I am an artist and a teacher. I enjoy books, nature, yoga, meditation, friends, eating, dancing in the living room with my 13 year old son, and connecting with people, finding out what it is to be a human being. I just read The Book Thief which I loved. I love Jane Austin,Terry Pratchett, Life of Pi, The Elegance of the Hedgehog.... lots of stuff. I'm completely addicted to Merlin and like movies with frocks and horses. I would love some beautiful high heel shoes but I always end up buying wholemeal comfy ones. I don't really have a motto... I try to lean into the joy of life, to see what is real and beautiful about people and to have gratitude.
