Birthdate:Aug 20
Location:London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
From Amsterdam, but happy to live in London. Married to a Pakistani poet since 25 years. Three grown children. Life was a struggle, but it's getting so much better now!
But why iselima, terribly sweet as it sounds? I-Selima was my wonderful mare, born '67, put to sleep in '93. Chestnut-sabino, half Arabian, half Gelders, motherly, outspoken, a lioness in velvet. Elsewhere I'm named after a sturdy planet, but that name was taken. So iselima it is, to honour her who played an important role in who I am today (or so I like to think).
