                             To all my dear friends in here :)

             Up North: I wish you all a Beautiful 
                    & Joyful  Spring Season!

          ... and Down Under: I wish you all a very
                     Colorful & Blessed Autumn!

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

All We Need Is Love Myspace Comment 

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.

 Anguttara Nikaya

I'm learning moment by moment  and step by step to


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 :)

I can fly

  Thank you my sweet friend Naimy for
  sending this picture to me: I'm very proud ;-)
