60 years young and living in the Netherlands as an ex pat since October 2020.
A former teacher, dance enthusiast and disabled business entrepreneur.
Here’s my story beginning in the first week of my 61st year, cheers!
‘To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power.
Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget another world is not only possible, she is on her way.
On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing’.
Arundhati Roy The cost of living, 1999
