7 things about me:

  1. I love almost all art and wish I could do it all.
  2. I love country and city life equally, as I love the 4 seasons – even winter!
  3. I am a typical Canadian – meaning everything you’ve heard about us [the good things only!] – that’s me.
  4. I love all animals and insects and see them as people too.
  5. Many years ago I turned to reading Sci-Fi and haven’t looked back.
  6. Tomato soup with a large crunchy peanut butter sandwich to dip in, is soul food for me – or any pasta out there.  Simple or fantastical – I love food.
  7. I love to work physically – like gardening or building things and even running around.
