I have been reading about Helena and I am pleasantly surprised to discover a very interesting character.
When you are born, you are complete but then shell after shell is added as protection against dangers around. Or society forces you to take different parts, needs and patterns you don´t really need or want. Then one can spend the rest of one´s life finding and removing the bad shells, and saving the good ones, one by one. At least that´s what I want to do.
Writing music and singing has always been a great joy in my life. Other things that make me happy is dancing (flamenco, hip hop, jazz), power yoga, painting, spending time with my husband Martinique or family ( I have four sisters! ), watching movies, the forest and the sea, baking cakes and cookies!
I love dancing: flamenco is my latest discovery, but I love the aggression in hip-hop dancing, too! And one more thing! When I was around 6 years old I adored chewing gum so much I would scratch off the ones on the ground:o) You know the white things one the asphalt that have been stepped on. And then I would chew them. And I asked my best friend My if I could take hers when she didn´t want it anymore.
