is it bad that I've never heard of the armenian genocide😅
Ohhhh, *stonily stare* it's absolutely inex....kidding, haha ....it's .... excusable, lol
First time I've heard about it was last year....never heard of it before and believe me, I've never skipped a history class. :)
maybe I'll read it 😂 What's it about?
Haha, I doubt it...... it's about the Armenian genocide ( still a controversial topic in some parts of the world *rolls eyes*) How a group of people basically gave the Ottoman government thumbs down to the deportation order. Instead....they gathered together, fled to a mountain ( Musa Dagh) and defended themselves .....successfully, against the Turks.
It's really deep, the daily struggle of these 5000 Armenians, hunger, despair, fear, hope. It's remarkably well written and shows the difficulties of human coexistence in a limited space and .....under extreme circumstances ( 6 villages practically gave up their individuality and merged into one community).
The book was published in 1933, banned in Nazi Germany and Turkey, burned a few months later. I love banned books :) Happy reading ! Hahaha
How do you get people listen to you?
I lower my voice, that usually demands attention :)
Whoever loves you will cross the ocean swimming just to be with you, don't let words fool you, watch the actions

Yeah, forget those "aquatically challenged guys" haha, kidding.....nah....nope....not really, not kidding :)

Any conflict can be easily settled by playing rock-paper-scissors :)

Ohhhh wow, well done. It's soooo difficult to put thoughts into words and onto paper.....and read it aloud in front of an audience. You chose a "heavy" theme, so sad.....yet beautifully written and emotionally presented. Thanks for sharing.
Hmmmmm, I hope it's not autobiographical :)
Jag saknar dig så mycket ❤
I believe you are ready to take the TULE exam :)
no just anything 😅
Ok then...as you wish....this is an excerpt from a book I recently read....I find it pretty soul stirring and touching....makes me contemplate my own mortality and realize how small and insignificant I am....at the same time I find it hmmm...inspiring....I'm determined to leave something of myself behind, haha
The character talks about the Altamira caves.
....and there above us, clustered in juxtapositions the meanings of which are lost beyond the barricades of time, were the drawings of all those animals whose shapes have long since been altered and disappeared from the view of men.......he continues.....and out of the corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of something irresistible above my head, seen in the ebb and flow of the swinging light: the imprint of a human hand.
God only knew how long ago it had been put there. Maybe ten- maybe 20000 years before.
This is my mark; it said. My mark that I was here. All I can tell you of myself and of my time and of the world in which I lived is in this signature: this handprint; mine.
I saw these animals. I saw this grass. I saw these stars. We made these wars. And then the ice came. Now the stars have disappeared. The grass is gone; the animals are calling to us beyond this place-the frozen entrance to this cave .....
In days or hours we will have died. We cannot breathe. The lanthorn flickers. All the air is gone. I leave you this: my hand as a signature beside these images of what I knew. Look how my fingers spread to tell my name.
Some there are who never disappear. And I knew I was sitting at the heart of the human race-which is its will to say I am.
Not telling huh? For me this looks like as "I couldn't figure it out"! :p and it was way more than a week btw! :p
Haha, ok....if it makes you happy.......the 🐝 at the beginning confused me a bit.....
Expecting your "travelogue" ....soon :)
It seems I was finally able to download and save the tale 'The Lady, or the Tiger?'. As soon as I have a minute, I'll read it and let you know. Sorry for the delay, but this is quite a hectic time at the end of the Fall semester. Hope you're doing fineRoberto
Ciao Roberto, yes.....I'm okay, thank you for asking.
Please don't feel rushed, take your time...whenever you feel like......
Christmas is just a few days away, do you have any plans?
do u prefer a small house or large mansion ??
I prefer small and cozy, secluded....lots of privacy. A little cabin/cottage with large windows and sliding doors, sitting atop a little hill, surrounded by trees with an opening to a beautiful unobstructed view of a lake. A wooden deck with a rocking chair, fluffy throws to cocoon myself into and watch the fog rolling over the lake. Perfection.
Do you share your problems?
Depends on the nature of the problem, I tend to avoid bothering people with my problems. If things get really bad and I feel the urge to talk things through.....I discuss academic related problems with my parents, monetary problems I call my grandad :), irritating social annoyances, that require the attention of a Pro...well... nothing can make me feel better than a little vent session with my best friend. Emotional problems...the wall goes up... I handle myself.
did you miss not having a sibling?
Not really, there was a time when I was eager to know why almost every other child I knew had a sibling... I thought it would be cool having an older brother. But...I got used to it, I don't feel lonely. However, my extended family lives far away and my parents are already "a little older" , they won't be around forever and....well...I have this nagging fear that I might lose them too early...it would be comforting to have a brother or sister at my side. Other than that....I'm good.....we have dogs,lol
Wooooooo I get it! Substituting the "q" for a "k" in the "original word" will make a terrible meaning!... I have to say it's a well thought riddle though! 👍 Now... my tallies? :p
2:2- I guessed yours correctly :)
Anyway, we already discussed this, but I wanted to add.....unlike you, I'm not an expert when it comes to Germanic/Norse mythology,sagas,etc. blabla...and they all differ a little. However, I do know this particular one from literature ( not the Edda though )and from music...inspired by it. And.......hold your breath......these two people weren't really on "friendly" terms :p
Sorry to resend the question again. Do you think that a human being finally becomes a hypocrite after getting hurt by his other fellow humans constantly? Why does it happen in your opinion?
Well, let's see..you mean this person engages in hurtful behavior as a result of his own pain caused by people close to him?
I'm not a psychologist.....but yeah that's possible.....pain and sorrow makes us act irrational,makes us do strange things.
Are your friends mostly your age or different ages?
I have friends of different ages. Some are my age and some are significantly older than I am.
How good are you at forgiving?
I'm quick to forgive ....to a fault...I'm unable to hold grudges or harbor anger for long. I just can't stay grumpy....it's pointless. After my initial " I am sooo going to kill you" phase my anger
subsides....however, I won't be able or hmmm....I'm reluctant to trust " the offender" again.

This is an excerpt from a letter John Keats wrote to Fanny,she was 19 and he was 23. So beautiful .....how he poured out his heart on paper. ...aww tears creep into my eyes...I think he was passionately in love with her, I'm soooo jealous....
He wrote: I have been astonished that Men could die Martyrs for religion – I have shudder’d at it – I shudder no more – I could be martyr’d for my Religion – Love is my religion – I could die for that – I could die for you. My Creed is Love and you are its only tenet – You have ravish’d me away by a Power I cannot resist: and yet I could resist till I saw you; and even since I have seen you I have endeavoured often “to reason against the reasons of my Love.” I can do that no more – the pain would be too great – My Love is selfish – I cannot breathe without you.
He was just 25 when he died :(
