Sightly strange I guess, to open this page with a woman I don't even know:
These photos - from the opening of Cloud Atlas in LA Oct 2012 - are nothing short of lovely, and the shine in her eyes is mesmerizing; Lana sure seems to be a very happy woman. © Reuters Fred Prouser & Fayes Vision/WENN

Sydney colleague Stephanie
Ingrid, who dropped out of Uni during our first year, did other stuff, returned to finish & found her way back to us after 31 yrs. 30th Sept.
When she asked me to come with her to the 2007 WIMA rally, I regrettably had to say no. The last time we talked before she left for Germany the message was that "We'll see more of each other this fall".
July 25th she was killed in a seemingly un-explicable solo accident; What if I had come with her ...?
Photos from July & Sept 2006.
At the time of the accident her Honda CB 750 - bought brand new in '73 - had taken her first criss-crossing America and then numerous times around Europe. It had acquired an amazing 640 000 km (400 000 mi) to its credit.
When Rita Creighton died, Sweden
was bereaved of a political &
LGBT activist of the first degree - and I lost a dear friend.
"Sweden"? Rita's four-hr funeral service was attended by 250 people representing at least seven countries.
Luckily there's also new friends to fill the gap: Panther biker Birgitta ...
... V-day pioneer Tina, in March '06 ... ... and Nov '07 ...
.. and my colleague Classe. Outside our office, July '06
Getting ready for our thirty-fifth anniversary at the Stockholm Technical University - almost to the day thirty-three years after my debut as a woman at this yearly students' ball.
