When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Greed is the basic cause of much of what is wrong in the world today. Israel's greed for possession of the land is the cause of the problems in Gaza and in Jerusalem. Greed for possessions is the cause of poverty and hunger at home and abroad. Corruption is fuelled by greed in countries where Human Rights are being breached. Greed for power is the cause of the shrinking of our personal freedom.
Can we change the world?
More about me
I live in Scotland, UK and all my immediate family live in England. Other members of my family live in Crete and New Zealand.
I'm 66 years old, but feel much younger than that! I am unique, eccentric, a total rebel and a madcap great-grannie on wheels (I whizz around in my wheelchair & often get comments about breaking the speed limit)!
I have two sons in their forties, four grandchildren, four step-grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and one step-great-grandchild - so my family is growing by the year - terrific!
I was a great fan of the Beatles and my brother has a Beatles tribute band plus a couple of others.
I am a musician and have been a teacher & semi-professional player all my life until I retired. I come from a family of musicians and teachers - three generations - and some of the younger members of the family are following the tradition.
Will add more when I have decided what to share. ;~)))

What do we think about all these issues? Which are our OWN thoughts without quotes, That can be told In ”You are the Source” since your thoughts are as valuable as someone else’s.
So much around us and inside us is sad so ”We cannot always Shine” that is OK. Admitting our sorrow and grief is the first step to healing and peace. And remember ”Grief is not a disease ”We can also find ourselves through ”Sagas, Dreams and Myths” within witch so much human wisdom is hidden.
We can close our eyes and just remember through all the music our heart and soul has saved, and we can share it with others in ”Unforgettable Music”
We can travel to get inspiration and understanding for our different cultures. Why not go to ”Sweden starting in Lapland” You will find my roots there involved in the midnight sun and the northern light *smile*
But you do not have to travel so far to find what counts the most in life ; ”small close things” which surround us all but to which we do not pay enough attention
