letterstohello@gmail.com VICKY UNDERSTANDS TRUE POWER True power is when someone actually uses it for others. Unfortunately, it is often misused in our society and never fully utilised for the benefit of others. However, there’s hope in the new world order to redefine the essence of “power” and create a sort of balance in society.

In December 2018 the sprawling house, with its exquisite tiled walls, Moorish fountain and many stained-glass windows, made the picture-perfect venue…
