Historical Romance Writer: LUSH SENSUAL READS

Beatrice Wood lived until she was 105 and was an active potter through her 90’s. When asked what her secret was she said “I owe it all to art books, chocolate and young men.” Those things which inspires us and make us happy.

I find her attitude and creative spirit an inspiration. Being who you are and following your passions are fundamental to being ‘here’, present in life as well as living a meaningful and happy life. That doesn’t mean you have to be an artist or do something extra ordinary, I think it means if you want to sit on the front deck with a coffee, feel the sun on your feet and watch people walk by…do it. Of course we live together  as communities so play nice goes without saying, the key is finding your place in a way that expresses you. It could be as simple as your open authentic presence.

I have a thing about centenarians and really want to be one as well. The few interviews I have seen have shown people who are at peace with themselves and who they are. I think that is one of the most challenging and rewarding things to achieve.
