Apart from teaching and practising yoga I keep busy painting, knitting, singing and playing the guitar (amateurishly but wholeheartedly), and, I confess: reading Janet Evanovich fanfiction and binge watching TV series. I practise riding my Kawasaki Z650 (in winter, with a hot-water bottle strapped under my jacket), and, most recently, lockpicking (only my own). I deeply enjoy both eating and cooking and baking bread and experimenting with the fermentation of Kefir to make lemonade and cream cheese, and I revel in gossiping and philosophising with my friends. I love the autumn, the observing of people (especially their faces) and nature. I indulge in laziness, and single-minded industriousness, and black humour. Most important to me are authenticity and veracity. I try my best to accept everything as it comes, and live it with all my heart: the sad and the merry, the ugly and the beautiful.
