In memory of all our loved ones who are no longer with us here.
Dear friends, I am aware that not only in moments of big tragedies, but every single day and everywhere in the world, people will, sooner or later, be confronted with the loss of a loved one and I believe this to be one of the hardest probes in someones life... Having to let go someone you love more than anything hurts... That's why I decided, after a period of mourning for the victims of the tragic bus accident in Switserland, to keep this poem on my page. I want to support those amongst you who happen to have lost someone recently or in the past who was/is very dear to them, whether it's a husband, wife, parent, child, friend, pet... having to let go of someone you love more than anything is always very hard... in time the wounds will get healed, the pain will diminish but it never goes away ... but realise that this experience makes you stronger and more aware of what is really important in life: LOVE, PEACE, PEOPLE, ALL LIFE, EARTH! CARE, BE COMPASSIONATE, BE THERE FOR ONE ANOTHER, that is MY SINCERE WISH for YOU
Gratitude is heaven itself.

Me experiencing a magical moment with the adorable Shenanah & Dino in Zoomarine Portugal, September 2011 :)
The one who practices loving-kindness sleeps and
wakes in comfort and has no bad dreams;
he is dear to both humans and creatures;
no danger harms him. His mind can be quickly
concentrated, his expression is happy and serene.
He dies without any confusion of mind.
loving-kindness protects him.
I'm learning moment by moment and step by step to be
who I really am, to express my inner self and to realise my
greatest dreams in our ever changing universe.
But surely I'll need many more lifes to succeed ;-)
I hope one day I will really fly :)
Thank you my sweet friend Naimy for
sending this picture to me: I'm very proud ;-)
