SWEET DIAMONDS: NEW TO OLD

Friends

Friends

Friends are like stars in our Universe. They are like rainbows in our skies. They bring colours into our lives. They are the expression of peace. They are the expression of affection. They share a precious gift. They share part of our lives.
Beauty of Nature

Beauty of Nature

Could Humanity imagine a world without light? Without colours. Without sounds. Could Humanity imagine a world without air? Without smells. Without tastes. Nature gives us so much. Yet, we mostly take it for granted. Nature gives us so much. Yet, she asks only little.
Seeing clearly

Seeing clearly

One morning I woke up. Somewhere I had never been before. The Sun was shining brightly inviting me to have a walk in the forest all around me. The air was fresh and energizing. The smells of plants soothing. The sounds of animals like music. I felt so good and full of happiness. It looked like a new world.
Mother and father

Mother and father

Mother and father are like a sun in our lives. Without them we would not have been here. From the very start we can feel their love and affection. During our entire life we can always turn to them.
Our teacher

Our teacher

Growing up is a long process. We have to learn very much. We rely on our parents to teach us. We also learn from many other people. Very often not directly known to us. We gradually form our personalities. We come to have an idea about what is right and what is wrong and about what is really important.
First step

First step

We all need air to breathe. We all need air to live. What we also need is love. Love that we give and love that we get. The air that we breathe needs to be pure and fresh. Yet, it is often polluted because the lust for money produces so many contaminants.
Like a father

Like a father

I would want to be like a father. A father to everybody. I would listen to what worries them. I would listen to what troubles them. I would share their happiness. I would comfort them in their sadness. Many people feel unhappy. Many people feel confused. They do not know what to expect of life.
False and true heroes

False and true heroes

How can anyone be called a hero when he killed and maimed innocent people? How can anyone be called a hero when he killed and maimed defenceless children? How can anyone be called a hero when his weapon is terror and destruction? It is easy to be a false hero. But it takes part of your very self to be a true and lasting hero.
Trapped in a system

Trapped in a system

I am here in a country at war. In a war I do not want. I do not want to die. My enemy does not want to die either. Why are we enemies? Is it our choice? Or was it the choice made by others? Why do we feel hate? I do not like to feel hate. My enemy probably does not like it either.
You're OK

You’re OK

Sometimes it is hard to feel OK. People often feel sad or dissatisfied. Dissatisfied with themselves. Dissatisfied with the way their life is going. Many people blame themselves for not having the life they wanted. For not seeming to correspond with what others or society expect of them. But do the latter expect the right things? What are their expectations based on?
Promised Land

Promised Land

Many people are hoping to find the mythical Promised Land. We had been looking too. We had travelled the world and found there was none. At least not physically. Until we found it in our minds. Peace and human values can take Humanity to the Promised Land. If we do not change, the Land will always be a myth.
Sweet and tender

Sweet and tender

This evening I was waiting at the traffic lights. The sunset was extremely colourful and nice. A car stopped next to me to wait too. In the backseat of the car there was a child, about 2 years old with blond curly hair. I smiled at the child and he smiled back. Spontaneously a broad happy smile appeared. I smiled again and he started to wave his hand. He smiled and waved his hand. Spontaneously and quite long. I waved my hand too and the child… He put his hand to his mouth and blew me a kiss.
