About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Trying to stay in touch with heaven, keep my spirit up, live each day

ABOUT ME

Hard to write about yourself, isn´t it?

I´m a middleaged (old?) woman, living on my own. I have three grown-up Sons living in the area and one sweet little granddaughter.
I work fulltime and usually feel rather busy. I love people but I need a lot of time on my own - sometimes hard to find both ;)!

I grew up in Lapland during the 50:ies and 60:ies which I think influnenced my life. We lived in the mountains, no modern life, we were taught to be careful with life and this earth.

I´m really afraid of traffic (cars, buses), but I do have a car and drive.

I like nature and countryside, even thou it gets rather dark in the Winter-time. Nature makes me feel safe, in town I never walk alone after dark! But I don´t mind walking the streets during day-time, window-shopping, feel the city :)
