i just finished my job as nurse for desabled adults near Paris and i'm retired one since two years in coming may
using my free time as retired one for humanitarian and Peace causes and especialy for children
i just had an experience as volunteer nurse in Palestine /Israel in 1977//78 for Desabled children both arabs and jews and i always wanted to do humanitarian free actions but i had to give priority first to my child
I did university studies in social gerontology Bordeaux II for two years I had all my cursus ( UV) in psycho/geriatry- sociology/demography- Methodology of social sciences- private and public law concerning ageing- and i had to present a work " Memoire" on intergenerational relationships between children of primary school and elders from an elderly medical home focused on art - painting- and reminiscence purposes - did not finish it because of difficulties i got on the professional ground
I did theater for two years and had the pleasure to participate at creation of my " personage", costumes and texts...
I love writing and i already wrote many poems in prose and rhyming ones
i love to walk in nature
it's why i love to get in touch about intergenerational networks with art supports and especialy involved for Peace, social and humanitarian causes
Actualy, being retired, i'm not yet free for involvements because i have my mother, very old one, totaly desabled after cerebral vascular accidents and totaly dependent, needing daily help from me It's a choice and so with my geriatric nurse's competences it is easier. Also i'm a grand mother, sharing life near Dijon in a huge property where each one has his own home and i have my little grand child, a girl, who comes very often with me I'm this kind of woman we call " Sandwich Generation"!
While my mother will leave us for her Eternal Home i'll be more free to engage myself in any humanitarian, social and Peace concerns .
I'm proud of:
to have been educated in a family w ith deferences
father british and protestant and a mother french ,catholic and a french grand father fondator of a summer university for foreign students comming from all part of the world

Hi Florence, thank you so much for leaving an inspirational message into my wall page, anyhow, everyone of us is indeed a medium or agent of peace. Starting within ourselves, a single steps can make a difference and I believe it can create a ripple effect in one way of another. Cheers! we never know, universe might arrange us to meet and work together in the future! Have a great day ahead. God bless!
