There is many ways to tell the Christmas story. Here’s one of my favorite videos from the eighties.

Joy For Christmas, Progress For The New Year!

Croatia, the War, and the Future

Wishing you all a joyous Christmas and progress in the New 2019 Year. I am blessed with all of your support and grateful for the opportunity to share life with you.

When it comes to Croatia and her path to democracy and well-being I remember the 1995 Christmas wish from Franjo Tudjman, Croatia’s first President. This was the time when Croatia, after winning the terrible war of Serb aggression, was to accelerate efforts into building a real and functional democracy; it was to lustrate the country’s institutions and leadership of communist heritage that suffocate democracy and true freedom. But regretfully this did not happen, not anywhere near the needed levels that cement sovereignty.

For this Christmas I choose to publish Franjo Tudjman’s 1995 Christmas and New 1996 Year’s message because it contains all the elements for thanksgiving that are as relevant today as they were in 1995.

Tea time treats…

Sunshiny SA Site

Entranced by the tranquillity of a garden restaurant, tea time treats turned into lunch time meals at 23 on Carbis in Scottsville.

A misty road trip to meet my intrepid travelling friend Heather resulted in pleasurable hours spent indulging in a catch up over lemonade and rooibos tea.

The meal arrived later than we expected, but that was immediately forgiven as we had strolled in later than our reservation time, our time had been consumed by a warm reception with Heather’s parents. My son, typical young adult immediately opted for the burger and fries. Heather and Hubby chose the thai fishcakes (a combination of hake and prawns) and myself, hake and chips. Fat slices of deep fried potatoes were ideal for the dull weather although the salad that come with the daughter’s spaghetti bolognese looked tantalising, the variety of ingredients topped with cubes of feta.

The Seed…

Try to get it!

You should be sure that you are talented…

You should be sure that you are unique…

You were not created to resemble millions of people….

But you came to life for a holy mission to discover your own jewel and value it…

Every body should know that behind his /her ordinary appearance lies a seed….the seed of genius…

You should search for that seed and try to find it…

After that….every thing will be possible…

Half Life

Life in a Muslim Household

Life isn’t always pleasant for everyone. While growing up i never felt an absence of a Fatherly figure maybe because during that time I didn’t knew exactly what a fatherly love was. The reason is not because my father was dead or sick, its just because he NEVER talked with us. I am one of five siblings and being on a second last place I’ve always felt neglected. I am not someone who would scream and shout to get things done, i am the kind that would even sleep hungry if not invited to the dinner table. I am on the deep end of the SHY meter.

The reason of my return today is rather a sad one. When i am not able to talk I write, or in this case, type things down. I was just scolded for baking a cake by my father. Just as simple as that…
