Thank you life and God for opening ones eyes and setting the heart free, free, free it is when we ask you for freedom and forgiveness. Thank you that we can ask for healing and that others can forgive us just the same. Freedom of speech and music

A Horrid Day

Posted: 24th January 2014 by admin in Uncategorized

Manchmal kommen Tage die so Sinnlos sind ganz besonders die wo man sich von allem verschließt weil man nur genervt ist. Heute war so ein Tag. BWL Vorlesung und leider auf einer so einfachen niveau das es echt lächerlich war nur das Problem ist das ich meine Gefühl für mich hätte halten sollen und es […]

A greatful day

What makes a day fullfilled, I asked my self this today.We had a short input about this today and I wonder, is it different for each person and only a subjective view? I asked my self what is a fullfilled day for me? Is it a day where I have done so much and was […]

Home for the Holidays

Posted: 17th December 2013 by admin in Uncategorized

I was listening to the song, “Oh there’s no place like home for the holidays.” My parents live about 10,000 miles away, my brother about 3,000 miles from me and I am somewhere in the middle.  Home for the Holidays is technology, skype & gchat.  Home is virtual and watsapp.  Its figuring out how to […]

New Eyes

Posted: 8th December 2013 by admin in Uncategorized

I woke up with new eyes for the world.  It was a long night, tear drenched pillows, cold winter wind biting at my soul but I woke up.  It was a long walk and a longer journey.  The cataracts developed with age, I moved around a lot but stayed in the same place.  It made […]

This morning I woke to a strange sound. My ears prodded my faintly conscious mind awake to this rare phenomenon and it took a few groggy tries to pull myself out of sleep before I recognized what this sound actually was: rain! It hardly ever rains in Los Angeles and this is the second treat […]

Aussie Tradies

Posted: 19th November 2013 by admin in Uncategorized

There are a lot of things I’m learning about Perth, Western Australia and every day there is something new. I generally give something a chance and time to develop, to give me different experiences so that I don’t end up generalizing and stereotyping. As a person from several “unliked” cultures, trust me, I know all […]

Highland Gathering

Posted: 16th November 2013 by admin in Uncategorized

Today, we went to the Highland Gathering in the suburb of Kelmscott, in the city of Armadale. As the name implies, it is a celebration of all things Scottish! We didn’t know what to expect but figured it would be a fun day out. We arranged to go there with 2 families from my son’s […]

Is Halloween Celebrated in Perth?

Posted: 1st November 2013 by admin in Uncategorized

We were told that Aussies didn’t really celebrate Halloween, so my son’s school organized a “trunk or treat” which entailed parents volunteering the trunks of their cars, decorating them with Halloween paraphernalia, parking them all nicely in a row, so the kids could go “trick or treating” at each car like they would have in […]
