Mr. Jones

There are people who should never be forgotten. Because their courage helped the truth to be seen.  I admire Mr. Gareth Jones' courage deeply! Without him perhaps the world wouldn't even know about the horrible holodomor.

I watched the movie Mr. Jones made by director Agnieszka Holland:


It is a good movie, but it is difficult to watch since the holodomor is one of the most horrible things that have ever happened.

Invitation for a cup of coffee :)


I am sharing with you pictures from the favourite part of my country. I took a day off work to go for a walk here. It was just picture perfect (despite the cold wind).

Additional advantage if you choose my country for your next holiday: You can have a cup of coffee or tea with me :)

The war in Europe

I love Lilly's latest post... her thoughts about the war in Ukraine are exactly the same as mine. I don't have anything to add, so I am just sharing her post:

The world's children


I am sharing a beautiful article with you. It is from approximately year 1950. 

I was deeply touched by the kindness of Mrs. Kleinstein's father. He was a kind man who was blessed with nine children and yet he taught his children that we should consider the world's children our own. 

That's how I feel about the children of Ukraine. 

I am still not sure how I will help, but I am determined to help.

I live in a tiny European country. From the our most eastern part of the country to the closest Ukraine town there are only 5 hours of driving by car! 

The war in Ukraine. How horrible. I worry.

I checked the statistics of my blog and it was visited 237 times by visitors from Ukraine in the last 12 months. 

I imagine who are they,  who were reading my blog. I wish you all the best, my dear readers from Ukraine. Stay safe.

Happy & Healthy New Year!


I hope this post finds you well. I wish you, my dear reader, a happy and healthy 2022! 

I recently discovered this beautiful song:


If the link doesn't work, do find it on youtube:

Je te souhaite une bonne année (Grégoire)

I love the song and lyrics a lot!  

I wish you all the good wishes from the song! 

The photo: was taken on the first day of the year, on a lovely walk with my husband. We did a short trekking in a beautiful valley Tamar in Julian alps. 

I recently celebrated 10 years of writing my blog. The writing has helped to heal my broken heart and soul. 

Here is the very first post:


Thank you for all of you who were there for me, supporting me with your kind comments / emails...
