I AM ~ A mother, business woman, grandmother, adventurer.

Aha Moment ~ When I was upset by an injustice and said “that is not fair”.  My father, said “what makes you think life is fair?” This was my first insight into the real world I lived in.  It never occurred to me that life was not always fair.

Inspirational Quote ~ ”I know only that I know nothing” -Socrates.

Motivation ~ When people tell me I can’t do something.

Chillax Time ~ Walk on the Beach. Read a good book.

Ultimate Trek Experience ~ My trip to the pyramids in Teotihuacan.
I learned about my ancestors and how they lived their lives.
My grandfather was exceptional though I never really knew him.

Top Three on the Bucket List  ~
1. Visit Madrid, Spain and Palma Mallorca
2. Tour Greece and Italy
3.Write a love story

Wish for the World ~ A new awakening where the reality of the human experience and the fact that we are all One is known to all.
