is your most treasured possession?
Well after these many years of life the thing I have learnt
is that you cannot hold on to anything and you can't bank
on things remaining the same; it's in our nature to evolve.
The only thing you can hold on to is love and respect. That's
my motto love and respect.
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

were you like at school?
I was a class disruption if the subject bored me - apologies
to my teachers they were wonderful people.
are you doing next?
Right now I'm in the moment. What I am trying to
do next in my life is to live in the moment. I realise that a lot
of our life goes by whilst we plan what we are going to do tomorrow
and while regretting what we did yesterday and very few of us are
in the moment in life.
