She raised me and she was born in 1897. Taught me to walk and read. A great person who had to take over the great sister duties when hers died when she was 9 yo. She never was allowed to wed so she considered Mum and me as her babies.🥰

Mary!🤗💐

Thanks for this moving story!🙏🏻

On a lighter note, when I got my driving license and we went shopping, my wife used to tell me not to try to park too close from the mall entrance as it’s always occupied. I jokingly told her how Aunt Aymée would have a nice parking place freed just for us… and there always was. One day, Anne went shopping alone and all the parking was occupied. She prayed Aunt Aymée and immediately saw the best spot being freed as she was driving by.

Since then she also invokes her for serious matters.🙏🏻🔥

I grew up poor, I once, as a student, survived a month on a 12-then-bucks budget. There’s no way I will burn whatever money I earn.🥺💐

I am just finished cooking: a plum pie for Anne, some keto buns to test my fresh cilantro pesto with a hint of pink garlic and curcuma.😋

I hate to have the oven burning electricity for only one thing.

Joe Stack’s suicide, I saw a teevee interview of a fellow Kuron about this: the late Michael David Crawford, a troubled genius. He said the IRS didn’t think his piano fitted as a work appliance. If they were developers, they would think otherwise of whatever can help redirecting one’s mind.

I am all for replacing the IRS with a sale tax which makes much more sense.

You should check Hemerocallis.

It’s a magical edible flower from Japan. : they say it’s why there are so many centenarians in Okinawa.

It’s always nice and interesting to read from you, my favorite part is when you get so deep into describing your garden activities.🤓💐

Every time I see JoK wearing these glasses it puts a grin to my face.🤭

We shall reach 50F this afternoon, so this was just a burst of polar wind through the rain clouds… I pray your garden exceeds your expectations.🙏🏻💐

Mary!🤗💐

There was snow on the Berner roofs when I got up today. It’s currently melting but I somehow enjoyed this white veil over my town.🤓

Looks like she saw pre agrarian subequatorial Africa. I hope she described the past, not the future.

Soros a few days ago, now Schwab? That would really be odd to get rid of them when the Queen and some Rothschilds also went so recently. Can we get Bill Gates next?

Just mark this a 💩post, Fren. No Antichrist shall prevail upon us, siblings in Christ and children of God.🙏🏻

Especially none with such appalling aerodynamics, btw🤭

As I told you before, I will keep having prayers for both of you long after this is just an old story.🙏🏻💐

Why not inspiring Christina to exploit this time out, maybe there are skills she could definitely work upon, either a language, a trade, history and or philosophy?

Let her know she’s not supposed to just survive during her time, she needs to find ways to elevate herself, lest she’d give up.

My father learned to carve wood in the gulag, he also kept writing… on cigarette paper (which my older sister used to smuggle out in her socks).🙏🏻💐

Have you heard about Asma Lamrabet?

She’s a Muslim theologian from Morocco who recently decided to review the women role in Islam with a modern and fairer flair:

👉🏻 http://www.asma-lamrabet.com/articles/muslim-women-s-veil-or-hijab-between-a-colonial-ideology-and-a-traditionalist-islamic-ideology-a-decolonial-vision/

…This is about claiming the right to interpretative diversity and its democratization. We can no longer tolerate that issues of meaning, life choices and spirituality be monopolized by an institution or a group of individuals, usually men - who speak in the name of a divine authority!!

She chose not to wear the hijab in 2019 as it never was found to be used this way in any religious text.
