1. What are you superstitious about?

I'm not really superstitious, but I'm careful on friday the 13th...

2. What’s the story behind one of your scars?

The large one was made after I got all my children and needed my uterus taken out because of unwanted changes.
As in my family in the women line uteruscancer was a rule, I had warned my gyneacologist about it. He did a test when I alerted him I didn't feel OK for some strange reason. I was warned well by my intuition.
The decision for the operation was taken and he also would work on my bladder. As my abdominal muscles were damaged by the many pregnancies and heavy twins the plastic surgeon agreed he would take care of that during the same operation.

Well, turned out they made a mistake when I was put under the gyneacologist forgot the bladderwork when he hurried to get the uterus out and afterwards the plastic surgeon and the gynaecologist were not able to handle the files properly, because none could accept that the other was leading surgeon.

So the were both fighting and the anesthesist tried to cover up his mistakes at the beginning of the operation. He believed himself so much, that he showed me the files, thinking I wouldn't understand them. Pity for him I've done my meds and had taken a rather elaborate education in pharmacology. So I saw his mistakes at once and also saw that due to his mistakes my heart stopped beating.
So no wonder my gynaecologist forgot part of his plans.

The scare is large, the story too.

3. What are three things that you would rather be doing right now?

Talking with a good friend,
making music with my bagpipe friends,
walking on the shores of a scottish lake.

4. What do you do when you're bored?

I'm never bored.

5. What's your favorite thing to do? Why?

I like many things, and there's none very favorite.
But walking at the beach is what I like very much. The sounds, being away from everything...

I also like gardening and making music.

6. What do you do when you're lonely?

Lonely or alone?

There's enough to do, from cleaning to reading, practicing music, to enjoying the garden.

7. How do you measure the passing of time in life?

By the wisdom gained. LOL!

Each spring I realise deeply another year is beginning.

8. What would constitute "the perfectly lived day" for you?

Being in balance with myself, the world and nature.

9. If you knew you were going to die in a year, what would you do in your final days?

Visit my friends, saying goodbye, and then I would leave for Mali and walk into the desert until I die.
When the last journey isn't possible, I'll ask one of my best friends to go with me to Scotland and walk with me to a place that overlooks a large area, and sit with me...
