Lost Friends

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bertie Williams Nov 29, 2009. 6 Replies

Two and a half years ago I lost my best friend in the world. She was more than a friend, she was a pal. Colleen was like another part of me. Someone, the only one, that actually knew me, listened to…Continue

There are many ways of presenting oneself I do it through my writings *smile*

So much around us and inside us is sad so ”We cannot always Shine” that is OK. Admitting our sorrow and grief is the first step to healing and peace. And remember ”Grief is not a disease ”We can also find ourselves through ”Sagas, Dreams and Myths” within witch so much human wisdom is hidden.
We can close our eyes and just remember through all the music our heart and soul has saved, and we can share it with others in ”Unforgettable Music”
We can travel to get inspiration and understanding for our different cultures. Why not go to ”Sweden starting in Lapland” You will find my roots there involved in the midnight sun and the northern light *smile*

But you do not have to travel so far to find what counts the most in life ; ”small close things” which surround us all but to which we do not pay enough attention

Hope seeing you somewhere *smile*/Gunilla

I hear that Montana just gave a license to some one to grow Hemp. That is a start.

Hi Bertie;
Of course I've heard of Bayonne. I can't say I've ever been there though. I didn't get to northern NJ much. Only went through there a few times on my way to NYC or back to my folks place in Palmyra.

SOrry to hear you've been ill. I hope it passes soon. I deal with chronic illnesses and can relate. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I'm not currently married but am engaged to a man in Morocco. I've been trying to get together the money for my ticket there for the past two years. Being unable to work and fighting SSA for Disability has made getting money impossible. I live on a very small amount from the state which leaves me out of money before I even get it. I was married twice before and have two kids from other relationships that I raised mostly by myself. They're grown up and in their own lives now. James is 24 and April is 21. I have a 4 yr old granddaughter from my son too although he's not with her mother.

Your travels sound beautiful. I've lived in the mountains of Western PA myself, other than NJ and NYC. I absolutely LOVED it there! I was dragged back to NJ after my life fell apart due to substance abuse. Thank God for my family. They got me through it and clean for over 15 years now. Once the gangs and drugs moved into my home town though I had to get out of there and remove my kids from what was bound to become a dangerous situation. Not only for them but for me too. Being in that kind of atmosphere would not have been intelligent for me to remain in so I moved them to here.

Morocco is absolutely beautiful and has history back to the 600s and earlier. The one city we hope to live in was founded in the 700s. It was called Mogador then but is called Essaouira now. It's on the ocean (I MISS the ocean!!) and a small fishing village. I can't wait to get there and change pace from what I'm used to there to the laid back attitudes and pace of life there. I also look forward to the mosques and hearing the Azan (call to prayer) 5 times a day. Being around other Muslims is something I want SO MUCH. It's not a faith that's to be practiced alone. Here I'm a target, there I'd blend in. I like that.

Ya know, I've never been further west than Chicago? Wow. I've missed seeing a lot of our beautiful country. Maybe after I get settled in Morocco (whenever that will be) and get healthier we can come visit here so that Mbarek (my fiance) can see America and I can see it through his eyes. He doesn't want to live here. Our life is there. He has his family and property there but would like to see where I've been and seen in my life and meet what family will still talk to me. LOL

Nice to meet you and God bless

Profile Information

When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I feel the pain in the world
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Our Planet
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
It seems to me that religion divides mankind instead of uniting. It is a curious thing that a philosophy that professes love in the name of one god or another can kill with the same hands that preach their so called "truths."
In many lands if you are the wrong religion you are as good as dead.
Can we change the world?
More about me
I am a mother and grandmother. I have been married for 33 years to the same man. We recently were gifted with our first grandchild. Family means more to me than any other single thing. That is why peace is the primary thing on my mind. My heirs will take this planet on. I must leave it better than I found it.
Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?

How sad

Posted on November 5, 2009 at 11:34pm 0 Comments

that United States Military men and women are not safe on their own army bases any longer. There are so many mad men in the world. So many horrible minded beings that do not see life as anything worthy. They see themselves as nothing so everyone else is less than they. There is a limit to what the human heart can stand. There is a limit to the sadness and despair that a heart can feel. America has had it's share of troubles inside and out, that no one can deny. But, we have come through these… Continue

No Child

Posted on November 1, 2009 at 6:03pm 0 Comments

No child of mine will fight in war

No issue of my blood

no death will come from guns or bombs

no death from that horrible flood

For I will fight for peace each day

and take this holy vow

to soften my heart and open my mind

for peace is needed now

No child at all shall die in war

no mother shall shed any tears

when mankind stands in the vale of love

and quiets each mother's fears

no child will starve for all will have food

all will… Continue

The Closer We Get

Posted on October 27, 2009 at 1:21pm 0 Comments

The closer we get to peace within the harder the road becomes. Our experiences show us that this may be the hardest road of all to pass along. Some may find rocks and stubble, others may be hampered by boulders and mountains. It is not an easy road. When boulders stand in your way examine your heart. You may find the blockage is not external at all by any means but comes from within. Peace is attained from the inside out.

The Plain of Jars

Posted on September 24, 2009 at 9:53pm 0 Comments

Recently, on the Travel Channel TV, on Anthony Bourdain's travel show I saw a brief spot on the Plain of Jars in Laos. This ancient site is littered with jars, some as large as five men holding hands in a circle. No one knows how these jars were made or who made them. Some remains have been found inside a few of the jars, but overall the jars were all empty. Ancient legends say that the jars were vessels which held wine for the local giants. Other theories state that the jars were placed on a… Continue
