FB: divergence

Three years ago, upon my arrival in Berlin, one of the things I chose to do to mark the beginning a new phase in my life was to join Facebook, after many years of lagging behind my entire social circle and dragging my feet about signing up. I figured it would be a viable platform

Finally accepting the woman in the mirror

The prequel to this blog entry is this one… and if you haven´t read it yet, I strongly encourage you to backtrack and read that first before continuing here.

We struggled through the absence of routine, no longer being part of a morning commuters’ rat race, or being on a tight schedule to cram in work, school, sports, socialising and household chores all into 16 hours.

One For The Dogs

Translation: Rhetorical question: IF I go ahead and transfer the contents of the open tin of cat food into a tupperware and place it it in the fridge, and IF I forget to label it, and IF my husband makes himself a sandwich with it because he believed it to be pate… and IF he

For those of you into astrology, numerology and the esoteric, 11/11 is a significant day of great spiritual convergence. For those practicing Wicca, the powers are especially strong today, reaching their peak at 11:11.
