My prayers are with the people of Norway after the killings and bombing in Oslo and the lost of lives as well as the lost of the sense of security and openness that this country has always demonstrated.
I receive many daily readers from Norway and of course the lovely Anika lives in Oslo; thank god she and her family are fine as I just found out (I emailed her and she just emailed me back).
I just want to take this opportunity to send a message of support and condolences especially to those parents that have lost their children in the camp shooting.
And then the amazingly talented and so sadly portrait in the press, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment.
Every time I saw photos or videos of her behaving irrationally; I always felt so sorry for her because she had so much talent and incredible potential but couldn't control her addiction demons. I introduced her music to both of my girls and I tireless played her cd's for many years.
So I dedicated this post to those whom are still here on our beautiful earth; breathing, crying, laughing, dealing with the joys and the suffering of every day life.
