MariaChristina at WordPress has tagged me to provide eight little known facts about my life. These are very ordinary facts, known well by all my intimates.
–At nineteen I travelled around Europe, stayed in France for three months and attended the Alliance Francaise school in Paris to learn French. At the same time I was working as Au Pere and searching for an apprenticeship as a printmaker.
-During my youth I was designated “mother” and “caretaker” for my Mom and older sister, rebelled and left for the north to try and devise my own life.
–I have kept up the habit of journalling since my early twenties, much of this will meet with a backyard fire, one of these days.
–Rumpole and I have been together for 32 years, and there are still mysteries unfolding about him as a person. This makes our relationship feel fresh.
— I have an incessant curiosity, which others may call nosiness.
–I dislike having the radio, tv, or records on as background, even in the car while travelling. I have to sit and listen and then turn off the sounds and process what I have heard. Ambient sounds are very important for me to have a handle on surroundings.
–I love young people and older people, find much to be learned from them. Kind of like all sorts of people, particularly those who live coherently with their strong beliefs, are passionate and follow their own path.
–I am addicted to cheese, red wine, substantial breads, fruit of all types.
