I live on the outskirts of Nuremberg, and I love walking with my dog in the forest, which starts just across the road.
My greatest passions are the English language, writing, reading, and my aquariums.
I also love photographing, digital painting and creating digital art, crocheting, singing, travelling, learning languages, watching documentaries, etc.
In short, I love being creative and I'm interested in a vast variety of subjects.
Some of my photos and digital paintings can be viewed here:

I've read the first 7 Taxi books and really enjoyed them. I like the characters, and it's interesting how they deal with situations differently. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

Ulrike, you did WHAT!! Well, what did you have in mind, Carmen? Yeah, that's what I thought!
There. I've summed it up. Would I have done what Ulrike did? Nope. Wouldn't have had the nerve or the idea. I'm stuck with whatever Carmen would have come up with. Stuttering my way through to absolutely nothing.
What's this all about? Gosh, I can't tell you. You have to read it for yourself. I am curious as to how others would handle this situation. What tactics would you use? Remember jobs and reputations are on the line. But it is a situation that comes up on a daily basis. Like I've said before, Sophia DeLuna uses realistic problems and handles them through the characters of Ulrike and Carmen. I have to say I was quite surprised with what was done and I have to admit to what I wouldn't have known what to do. Real life like this scares me. As advanced as we think we all are on LGBTQ issues, this situation still exists.
As I have said before, I love these episodes by Ms. DeLuna. They challenge my mind. They warm my heart. It is a little like watching a soap opera. And at this point I can't wait until Sophia finishes the next Taxi event! By the way, thank you, Ms. DeLuna for letting me read these last few for free. When I can, I will buy these stories for friends, thereby passing on the kindness.
