Summer Holidays’ Musings

Like most holidays in the heat season my husband and I made what is slowly becoming a traditional compromise: we spent 5 days in the mountains and 5 days at the seaside, both in our home country. You have probably guessed: he likes the mountains, while I prefer the sea. Although I must say, over the years of our marital journey, I have grown close to the mountains and he started to like the sea. It is funny how one’s likes are not so set in stone, once one is willing to step out of the box of one’s standard views. It took a lot of adjusting though.

Spirituality in Schools

My Little Insanities

The list goes on and on. I have to clean this and that additionally. I have to protect my social network profiles. I have to reduce the spam in my e-mail accounts. I cannot include in a blog-post or, God forbid, in a book something, which would have a bad effect on the reader. I must be very precise in recycling the garbage. I remember parts of conversations with people and I go over and over them after the meeting to make sure I could not have done any damage by my words. The list goes on and on. What I am most afraid of is making a mistake. But mistakes are a part of life. That is how we learn. Yet,...
