Tagged!


I've been tagged by Gill!
Each player of this game starts with the "6 weird things about you" blog post. People who get tagged need to write their own 6 weird things post and state the rules clearly. At the end of the post tag 6 more people and don’t forget to leave a comment on their blog to tell them they have been tagged and tell them to read your blog.

1. I spent 6 years studying at the Gregorian Chant Institute and used to sing in a Gregorian Chant Choir - I particularly liked this chant.
There's lots more here, just in case anyone out there is interested! I then learned to play the harpsichord and love early and baroque music.

2. After more than 10 years of classical music I got bored and joined a Brazilian Bossa Jazz Band. We used to do the original version of Mas Que Nada.

3. I have lived in 2 continents, 3 countries and 10 towns/villages. I have been 'technically' homeless twice and spent more than 2 years in temporary accommodation.

4. I hate shopping, socialising and small talk. These last two seem to go hand in hand - I tend to find them a waste of my precious time, which I value more than possessions and wealth.

5. I took my son out of school - that's still considered weird by the majority, I suppose... I'm a recovering addict: I've been addicted to the whole schooling thing for more than 3 decades! In a 'past life' I used to be a rather strict piano & music teacher... I'm now Healing from the Diploma Disease.

6. I like simplicity, silence and solitude, and I've spent the last 5 years exploring Buddhist Philosophy (Tibetan Gelug tradition).

Now to find six others to tag.
