Thea

Pic of Thea, taken quite a while ago..

irth - Time and Place:
I assume that I was born - according to Thuja - before the age of the dinosaurs, in the centre of Europe, but maybe even when the galaxies started to form??

BUT: I AM NOT feeling that I‘m "older than the hills" or about the "age of a dinosaur", lol.

Schools:
Kindergarten, Grundschule (primary school) and Gymnasium (grammar school) in Northern Bavaria.

University:
Studied Physics and Religious Education (Theology) in Erlangen and Göttingen to become a teacher for Gymnasium

Referendariat (two years, second part of my way to become a teacher) in Erlangen and München

Family and after University life:
Marriage and first child in these two years of the Referendariat.

Two more kids, a stay in England for over a year, in between part time work in different schools, finally the planning and building of a wooden house.

The Best People Entry Award 2007
Winning Entry: "The Santharian Princess Lady Shiana"

Who other than Talia could have written such a brilliant entry on a contemporary Santharian princess? Well maybe her alter ego Arthéos Federkiel... The entry on the Santharian Princess Lady Shiana at any rate sets standards in regard of integration of references to other developed stuff, is brillantly written, perfectly illustrated and furthermore is a key entry of historical importance as it sheds light on how Santharia's royal family of today looks like. - Just great stuff!
