Happy Mother’s Day

Mum, you always say you don’t want anything. As a mother of five as well, I could say the same.
You always told me to be grateful. Sometimes I wasn’t, but now I am. Continue reading

Am I becoming like my mother

Am I becoming like my mother who doesn’t want to get a new stove when her old 60 year old one still works, despite the broken grill function? Or the air conditioner which probably uses a ton of electricity and makes a lot of noise, but still cools the air? Or the veranda roof, which Nathan wanted to replace when he was Down Under last year, but she said she will not replace anything that still works. Well it was actually leaking so I told, George, my youngest brother to tell her that it does not still work and needs to be replaced. Continue reading

Airport

Wednesday evening all the family came to see me off at the airport. Godwin brought me his noise cancelling earphones. The next 24 hours I changed planes once in Dubai, had another transit stop in Singapore, had a short stay in Thursday, to arrive in Melbourne summer time, ten hours ahead of Vienna winter time, on Friday morning, 19th January 2018. I collected some Aussie dollars at the ATM on the way out of customs and immigration. Continue reading

Himmel und Hoelle (Heaven and Hell)

We attended a seminar in Heiligenkreuz at the Catholic University, south of Vienna, Austria. It started off dark and depressing. I began wondering, “What am I doing here? Shouldn’t I be home finishing off editing the book on the spirit world?” We came together. Josef wanted to see Frau Dr Gerda Falkovic. She spoke in the afternoon. Continue reading
