About me

Occupation Mainly Retired, Reflexologist, Peasant.
Location Nakusp, B.C., Canada
Introduction Originally from Amsterdam, Netherlands, came to Canada with geologist husband and ended up living the simple life in a rural paradise. My passions are reading, gardening, natural healing, and doing my small bit to work towards a greener, more just society.
Interests Nature, Gardening, Natural health, Astrology, Politics, Literature, History, Social justice.
Favorite Movies Anything that is not horror, has beautiful landscapes, and some half decent characters. I prefer actresses who don't look like stick insects on heroin.
Favorite Music Silence, or I can't hear myself think. I do like the odd bit of Baroque and some Celtic or folk. But words are my drug of choice.
Favorite Books Favorite authors: Terry Pratchett, Barbara Kingsolver, Doris Lessing, Helga Ruebsamen, Marge Piercy, Margaret Atwood, Margaret Drabble, A.S. Byatt, Rohintan Mistry, Robertson Davies, Marten Toonder, Michel de Montaigne, Renate Dorrestein, many more I cannot think of right now.
