Who are the three people at your dream dinner party? Why?
My Father (he passed away 10 years ago and I have so much to tell him and ask him); the Dalai Lama (he is so full of wisdom and respect for his religion); my husband (because I’d like him to meet my Dad and he would also like to spend time with the Dalai Lama!!!).
