My island,
between sea and sky,
there is an island waiting for me,
where the waves flow and die
on its golden seaside,
to the roots of a palm tree.
I leave my soul hover above this land;
like a sea-gull in search of his destiny,
like a glimpse in my dream, to the end
of the dreadful days I’ve left behind me

Happy Mother’s Day!

There is nothing in the world better

than the Love of a Mother!

She will always be here for you, when you need her the most,

when you feel you are lost!

And when she talks about Love, she knows what she is talking about

as she  only talks with her heart!

The Blessing of a Mother’s Love will Last Forever!

And the reason we are here today is to celebrate : Mother’s Day!

Unfair Religion

This morning I was listening to a segment on a network about a pastor (married with 2 kids)  in Iran facing death sentence or life in jail because he is a Christian and refuse to abandon his religion to become a Muslim !!!!

Let stop here and think about this one second……WHAT IF……it was the contrary??????? The WHOLE WORLD would be yelling and screaming…in the street!!!

So why  all Christian are not in the street marching??? “the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom is expressing deep concern” (from a CNN article)..!!!  THAT’S IT ???

I am sure that there is plenty of those cases  in the world, with other religions and we don’t know about it!!!! but here is my problem with it……Now we know about that guy!!!!

I want to put the record straight, I don’t believe in Religion, I just respect everybody’s faith.

James Redfield (The Celestine Prophecy) wrote….”Religions become corrupted when leaders are assigned to explain God’s will to the people instead of showing them how to find this direction within themselves.” 

This blog is not about religion , but a cry out,  from the bottom of my heart, about unfairness, lake of respect and about a men standing out for his faith without hurting anybody and being executed for it…Waou…we are still at the “barbarian” times where people are killed for their beliefs…!!!

I hope that this blog will go far………and perhaps will help…somehow…somewhat…to save this Pastor’s life and bring him back to his family!!!


What I’ve learn so far about Life!

Life is not fair! That is what we tell ourselves every day, or if not… often enough!

But life doesn’t need to be fair; it is just what we make of it.

We take the decisions, good or bad, but it is our decisions, our free will and at the end, if we make a mistake, we can only blame ourselves. The only good thing is that we will learn from our mistakes  so we won’t repeat them again and again (hopefully…lol!!!).

Some..11 years ago, I took the decision to come in the US, so my son could be growing up with his father that was already living there. I left behind everything that really count for me, my mother, my brother, all my family, I was trying to recreate my own family, but it didn’t work that way!

My son grew up in an American society, I built my own little life too…that is when his father, that could not adapt himself to the American way, went back in France…but me and my son, we were at a point of no return…

My son was already in high school, lost his French writing and couldn’t go back to the French way! So I had no other choice than staying in the US where I built up a new life anyway!

I miss my family, I cannot return as often as I would like to.

It was my choice, was it a mistake? Future will let me know; I still think that my son has a better chance of a better life, here, in America as Europe is full of economic problems and a lot of people out of work.

But whatever is the outcome, I take full responsibility!

And that is the way it has to be for everything in life.

About relationship with others

It is not about you! Remember those 5 little words…it is not about you!

It is very difficult to live with others;

Relationship are not easy! When you are with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you have to know that every day is not going to be an easy day! There is going to be some wonderful moments and there is going to be some difficult moments.

Everybody has demons running around their minds, skeletons in their closets too…and when they come out, it creates some waves of sadness…fears….incertitude… and those waves creates fights, words that we don’t means etc…

So when you have a fight with your partner, try to remember, it is not about you but more likely, about his or her own demons running around too much in his or her mind!

Walk away, don’t answer, wait until the storm pass….after the storm the sun will shine again!!!

Then if you still have doubt, put in the balance: what are the good things that this relationship is bringing to me and what are the bad things.

The answer will come clearly if you have more good things than bad thing or vice e versa! No brainer!

In Conclusion

Life is unfair,  just you can make it fair, you make the choices, but remember, life is beautiful, there is nothing like a sunrise or a sunset, there is nothing like a smile, there is nothing like LIFE in general! It brings you a lot of blessings that you have to recognize along your path, even in your darkest days you can find a light…if you want to…Yes…if you decide to change the course of your life in case you don’t like where it is going.

But never ever blame anybody or let anybody take credit for what you did to YOUR life! And one more thing….Be humble and always remember where you come from!

I’m Normal, so what!

It sounds ridiculous … CRAZY … to make a blog about being normal, but sometimes I feel, and I am sure I am not the only one,  that we are living in an “abnormally NUTZ” society.

What is the definition of NORMAL:

As per Merriam Webster On line dictionary

“not deviating from a norm, rule or principle, conforming to a type, standard or regular pattern; free from mental disorder…Sane

Synonym is Regular.”  I am just regular ….

Let me give you an example, I came in the States with my son, 10 years ago, at the time  he was only 9 years old.

I recently became a Citizen,  I was able to file for my son, so he can become a Permanent Resident ;  After all, he grew up here, went to school and got his High School Diploma in the USA. I thought it would just be a “formality”

I filled out the information, they register him as a resident and it’s done!!! THAT WOULD BE A NORMAL PROCEDURE IN A NORMAL WORLD!.

WRONG! This is not happening!

There  was an interview that took more than 6 months to get …  I had to bring all kinds of documents and justifications. Unfortunately I was missing 1 document, guess what…My son’s residency was denied! Now I have to re-apply, with a lawyer this time, so I can make sure (at least I hope) that my son will get his residency. It cost me Time, a lot of money and so much stress!!!  AND ME THE MOM IS A CITIZEN!!!!

I am normal! R U

I am in line at a supermarket … my credit card in my hand, ready to put my stuff on the counter, pay and get out of here, (don’t know about you) but, I have better things in my life to do than to spend my time in a supermarket … LOL … But, in front of me … the people DO NOT have their money or card ready, they’ve got all kinds of things, all kinds of questions … Hello … it is just FOOD!!!  and … all kinds of stories to tell to the cashier. THEIR NEW BEST FRIEND …. ..   It’s even CRAZIER when you are in the 12 items line and THEY have a full cart just in front of you but the cashier takes them anyway….

The world is insane … what is up is down and what is out is in …

I am Normal … I am NOBLE … I CARE

ARE U ???? DO U ???


Bring me your CRAZY … NUTTY stories …

IS INSANITY now the rule ???

Has the normal, respectful world been reduced to REGULAR???? ARE WE INVISIBLE ??? DO WE EXIST ??? DO WE COUNT ??? Does anyone care ???
