Secret of my (our) success

Viv Mcwaters

Other talented people I’d like to hang out with more are all over the planet - in Canada, Zambia, the US, England, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, New Zealand (and there’s a few others in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth…) But I digress. Half jokingly I often say that I hang out with talented people, and that’s the secret of my success. It’s only partly a joke because it happens to be true.

It’s the second longest place I have ever lived in, apart from my family place, back in mainland Spain (León). Today is a special day for yours truly.
