This is my beautiful daughter Amber sipping tea at an atmospheric old tea shop in Cambridge England. She has lived in Cambridge for the last six years and is finishing her doctorate in women’s studies (a fusion of psychology and physiology regarding the relationship of women’s natural biological rhythms and their psychological states.) I must add as a proud father that she was awarded a full scholarship by Selwyn College of Cambridge to do this study.

    She is a ‘no nonsense’ woman! Strong in Spirit and Life! Gorgeous!

  • Yes, there is much truth to your sensing. And then, there is this quirky gypsy child in her too, and I love her for that.
