I am very grateful these days. Because I have people who are listening to me, who find that my stories are worth telling, they share my thoughts and feelings, share my daily life. Although they may be far away from me, I know they are there.
What would I be without the net, the internet? I don't know...
Winter goes on, the cold has everything in its grip.
But there is so much beauty all around.
When I was a child, eating was a real horror for me. Being something like a natural vegetarian (I never ate meat), landed in a family of meat-worshippers (two Berlins who have hungered in their early childhoods), every lunch was a nightmare for me.
Cooking was so different, when I was a child: mashed potatoes and over-cooked vegetables and meat meat meat. The only spices were salt, pepper, dill and parsley.
So glad this has changed now. Discovering what food can be nowadays is a real bliss. I read, that no other nation than the Germans are willing to cook so many dishes from other countries. I read that e.g. the Japanese most of the time eat food their grandparents ate too. But we are eating totally different things now. The "Sauerkraut"-days are gone. Thank Goddess!
I have founded a new Flickr group "Aware of life", it's about living life on purpose, celebrating the seasons, eating slow food, raising kids, listen to nature, greeting life's ups and downs, being aware of who you are, seeing the beauty in small things.
Maybe you like to browse or better (if you are on Flickr) join in.
