Jan. 6-7, 2009 – Nothing Special But 2 Insights…Tarot Cards and my Eyesight

Nothing much to write…just a pleasant day, taking it easy, meeting friends, relaxing, enjoying the wonderful weather which continues to be sunny for parts of the day and hazy at other times, but no rain yet. I’m posting some pictures of more views of the Ganga.

I cannot get enough of sitting along the river and enjoying its changing its appearance not just from day to day, but from hour to hour as you can see here. These were taken within 2 hours of each other.


And of course pictures of me in the new outfit I told you about which is so warm and comfortable and just perfect for this weather. Wish I could dress like this at home in the winter!!

I have some other things to post but need the urge to sit down and write more seriously, and I am feeling very lazy these days, so will just wait with it. Just some new projects that have been sent my way and am enjoying them immensely.

It is difficult being this far away during the current crisis at home, but since there is Read the rest of this entry »

January 1, 2009!!! Happy New Year!

January 1, 2009!!! Happy New Year!

Well, my last post was kind of depressing and I ask your forgiveness, but this blog is not meant to tell only the good stuff. It is supposed to be a journal of my experiences, and these include difficult days as well. Just the other day I wrote a post telling of the importance of all things in order to appreciate our life fully. So the last few days have been difficult, the emotions manifesting themselves as headaches, which I’ve had for the last few days almost continuously. I generally don’t experience headaches anymore in my life, so this surprised me. But I’ve been working through the emotions relating to the situation at home, with my country and my family, and the headache seems to be waning this evening. I cannot say I am in the greatest of moods but slowly I am returning to my balance.

Life is good, the seasons change, we move from periods of quiet to periods of war, from peace to struggle, from quiet to noise, from hot to cold, from joy to sadness, but always try our best to be in harmony with each day and to be grateful for what each day brings. Knowing that all is happening exactly as it should, when it should and how it should. Tears and sadness making way for joy and laughter which are so much more appreciated when they return.

Last night there was a New Year’s Eve party here, but I didn’t go. I never like parties anyway, don’t drink and it was also VERY cold…and with the way I was feeling, I crawled into bed to keep warm and watched some “TV” before going to sleep with earplugs which kept the party away from me completely. Slept well until the morning.

I was supposed to have my heater last night, but did not. So today I went out myself, purchased a new heater and gave the bill Read the rest of this entry »

Dec. 31, 2008 – WAR from Afar

Dec. 31, 2008 – WAR from Afar

This will be short but not sweet. Experiencing a state of war taking place in your home country, when you are far away, where your children and grandchildren are living in a war zone, is one of the most difficult things there is. And with distinct mixed blessing of having the world at our finger tips via internet, I can listen to and watch the news whenever I feel like going down to the internet café. It is truly a mixed blessing having access to the world. My eldest daughter and her family who have already been traumatized by terrorism in the past, are now living right in the part of the country that is in direct line of rockets. So the children have been sent to stay with family in the North and now I “only” have to concern myself with her and her husband traveling to and from work each day, and the impact of this separation on her children. Hopefully it will be over soon.

My very good friend also lives even closer to the Gaza strip on a kibbutz which has been targeted for rockets for months now, and has had one fatality so far from a direct hit. A couple of days ago a rocket landed on her front lawn. The entire kibbutz has been evacuated to the north and she is now leaving for London for a 2 week stay, hoping it will quiet down before she gets back, or she will have to stay with family up North for the duration as well.

I of course am also thinking about my son and sons-in-law being called up in case there will be extended fighting, and can only pray that it will be over shortly with as little loss as possible, and with positive results for the future.

God willing….the coming NewYear will bring good things for all of us and the whole world…peace, love, harmony and understanding, acceptance, patience and tolerance , good health joy and laughter for all.
