About me

Industry Education
Occupation Retired teacher of Pottery and Art..
Location Devizes, Wiltshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Still alive and kicking, and enjoying spending the winter months in Little England and the summer in Braunschweig, Germany. I have one life which I attempt to live with zest and enthusiasm, although I do get very tired. I suffer from the delusion that I'm only 40 years old and will never grow up. "Adventure before Dementia" is my motto. I am engaged in a continual battle with the German language, a battle, which I´m glad to say, I´m now winning.

Where I am there arises a place. Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself. In sitting just sit, when standing just stand, above all don't wobble.
