My imagination gets activated during the hot summer months. Gardening is like meditation to my soul. If I have any problems at all, by the end of a day in the garden, my problems are less relevant and in some cases I’ve some solution or even forgotten about them! My charming little garden provide me with an unlimited canvas where I can add, subtract, multiply and divide plants based on colours, texture, blooming times – and even thinking ahead to how it will look like in the years to come. My imagination is so busy creating that as Micheangelo said: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

Sometimes, our faith is all that keeps us anchored in sanity, regardless of our religion. I seek only to be more Christ-like, more Budha-like, more God-like. At the end of it all, our behaviour towards each other is the truest reflection of the emotions which are held deep within us. I pray, for you and I, that this emotion will always be love, in the most sacred and purest form.
May you have a blessed Easter Celebration.
My tears flowed nonstop as I helped her with the sewing machine and observed the pensive and thoughtful look on her face. I know how much this sewing machine meant to her and I am sure that if she was right here with me, she would tell me that it was her lifeline. Back in 1947, women like my mom did not have the fair advantage to go to school. She was denied an education because she was the eldest child and had to stay home to help her mother with the house work.
It is my wish that we all live harmoniously and have compassion and kindness in our hearts towards ALL people, not simply those whom we know or are privileged to spend time with on a regular basis. As easy as this sounds, it is not always easy to practice kindness and compassion because we have grown to be quite a cautious society with judgements about others which can cause us to be indifferent, unkind or sometimes even hostile.
