|Wow, what a truly rich life you live. And what an enviable garden you have. It re-inspires me to work on mine for the next two decades or more. |
Have you found that exposure to several cultures has given you more freedom to choose how you conduct your life?

|That is a totally 100% awesome article. Thank you for sharing your life with us, it opens up so many doors that we're allowed to take a peek into.|

|Oh, Sue, you scamp. I came to this page to see whether there were any new threads and found a picture of me. That photo was taken at Garden Valley Ranch, by the way, in case anyone thinks that's my garden.|
I'm not sure what the answer to your question about cultures is, Steve. It worked out that way for me, but I had friends in the Russian community in San Francisco whose stories were much like mine and they ended up living strictly according to the rules set by their families and that community. I guess I ended up happier and more independent because I had the "advantage" of a truly rotten family. I had to fend for myself at a very young age and that let me make my own choices. It also taught me that there were no bonds I couldn't shake off. It took me years to get rid of all the negative people in my llife, but I ultimately did succeed in doing that. I now have an idyllic life, doing whatever I want and choosing my own "family" for myself.

|Oh, Zuzu. That photo is so perfect of your lovable, sassy self that comes across cyberspace into our hearts. What a marvelous article and what a wonderful, diverse life you have led. Since few of us ever get to meet in person, these little personal glimpses help us to "see" each other a little better. I hope we'll see more of these on Cubits.|

|That is one of my favorite descriptive words for a "woman of today," Zuzu. I am a bit that way myself. Judging from our conversations, it seemed to fit you to a "T." It is meant with much admiration.|

|That's exactly how I took it, Judy. Thank you.|
