Favorite Books Amante da Arte de Viver, educo-me em várias esferas, sendo a principal a Música. Componho quando a madrugada desperta e decoro minhas composições musicais com promessas poéticas em rima branca. Navego pelas civilizações Mães das Filhas de que hoje fazemos parte. Até ao berço da Humanidade sigo, abrindo livros cheios de palavras e símbolos intoxicantes, deixando-me para sempre apaixonada mesmo quando deslizo nos lençóis do sono reparador. Viajante Intemporal! Eu sou possível! Sou o que escrevo, o que canto, o que componho, o que fotografo e edito. Magia é o que dou a quem me ouve/vê, porque me dou como sou.
