Ik kreeg een gratis weblog bij mijn website ruimte.
Als oudere jongere een weblog beginnen, da's wel een uitdaging. Maar er is genoeg om over te schrijven, want de wereld staat nooit stil (en ik ook niet trouwens...) en daarnaast hoop ik dat er ergens in die wereld iemand is mijn verhalen dusdanig interessant vindt dat ik het niet helemaal voor niks doe. Want ik mag het wel leuk vinden om hier wat te schrijven zo nu en dan, een beetje interactie is zeer welkom, en helpt mij weer vooruit, want ook bloggen kun je volgens mij leren....misschien wordt het ooit nog eens wat. En die interactie kan via de commentaren in dit blog, via mijn website, email en via twitter. Leuk om nog eens van je te horen !

With my webspace came a free webblog.
Starting a blog as an elderly youngster, that's quite a challenge. But there's plenty to write about, because the world never stands still (and neither do I ....) so I hope that somewhere in that world, there is someone that thinks my stories are worth reading, so I'm not doing this for nothing.
I do like to write here occasionally, but some interaction is very welcome, and helps me to move forward, I think blogging is something you actually can learn.... someday it might even be worthwile reading for more than just my friends and family.
You can interact via the comments in this blog, through my website, email or via twitter. Nice to hear from you again!


Christmas time

MarcellinhoPosted by Marcellinho Thu, December 22, 2016 01:33:09
It's that more or less festive time of preparing for Christmas right now....
I hear my radio in the background:
'Snow is falling, all around me, children playing, having fun, it's the season, love and understanding, merry Christmas everyone'.
5 minutes ago, I saw these horrible scenes of the war in Syria. A terrible report showed death and massacre on TV on prime time.... what does people lead to the actions that are beyond any human beings' understanding? At roughly 4 hours flight time, hundreds of thousands of people are dying, while we're singing Christmas carols, while we gather around a table filled with loads of food and drinks, a Christmas tree is standing in the corner of the livingroom and candles lite the cozy decorated livingroom.... It makes me wonder: 'Do they know it's Christmas time at all?'

Two weeks ago, I was lying on a white, tropical beach in Jamaica, enjoying a bright sunshine, all these palm trees, blue sea and a great cocktail........ Yes, I was fully aware of the fact, that it was a bargain we hopped on this time. Jamaica with it's reggae music and tropical fruit cocktails.....what a contrast with the images of the devastating destruction, the loss of human lives and the hatred that is cried out at certain moments.....
It brings an odd feeling, a feeling of being aware that so many people are suffering, where we're taking a holiday as an in between break from the busy daytime.....
Let's worry about next year only from next year.......Is that too easy? Or is it too complex to worry about the situation of all these people, who are caught in the war, despite the fact that they are also just civillians like me, who were in the right place at the wrong time?
So far, is the only thing to do, try to keep an eye on the situation, think about the people involved and give them a prayer some itme?
We were so much enjoying the (above- and underwater) scenery of this beautiful Caribbean Island, it has brought us a number of great memory to cherish. It might probably be the best, not to think about the situation of destruction too often, where we can also have these pics taken.
Let's enjoy the Christmas festivities with an open mind for all that is happening around us, be aware about what we can do in our little world, the world might be a better place when starting to improve it by yourself........

Merry christmas and all the best for the Newyear !
