Enabling. Prescriptive. Stuck.

Probably worry about why the earth had changed its orbit.

Favourite city and why?

Walk on the Wild Side by Lou Reed.
If you could have been born in any era, which would it be and why?
I would have liked to have been a teenager in the 70s.
If you could have any one supernatural power which would you choose and why?
I have dreams in which I can levitate and fly – so, flight.
