to get old....older

no one like to think about it, nor to describe or write about, we would like to be young for ever.
But this is not possible in real life, only in virtual life. the medicine and beauty industry with
it big markets promiss, never to get old or older. what we should do or not to do, what we should
eat or not, what kind of sport we should make etc. if we can afford.
Why do we have problems to accept to get old or older in a worthy way, because nobody likes
to see, to respect , fear, no positive signs, because youth means everything.
no positive signs we see, that the years pass by, full of life, busy with job, children, family,
business. Getting older we do not want to have time, we are used always to dosomething,
not to waste time. to learn, to be busy with our interests , the changing world, the changing life
okay we should not be ashamed to get older, hopeful to get wiser, be more patient, to keep our
curiosity, our power. 
in africa the older persons always is important what they have to say, still in their integrated community and their power is immense, if they have heath problems or not.
nobody will keep the youth for ever. The faces are telling lifes with shadows of our souls
our years of dreams, of sorrows, our passions lying  under the surface, invissiable for
others. dreams and wishes disappearing in the dark nights.
take your time to get old or older, put away all the heavy luggage, slow down  be happy if your feel good.

the world of frequencies




remember the fine lavender my mother used,my father with the tabac in his pipe smoking, when he left his
room to visit our garden.or the special frequency of your little baby fresh and innocent.
or if you pay a visit to the rooms of your friends or other people
somtimes there was a smell of fresh prepared coffee or roast beef.
we rember situations and we will found some pictures, existing
or phantasy, or remeberence.
In our garden in summer many blossoms in many colours the green
apple or cherry trees and of course the smell of summer in the  air.
during the years of youth as a young girl the frequency of perfume,
the first love, the first party the first kiss, young men who would like to get your attention
with fine shaving water.
1000 ths of smells in this world. the salty breeze of the sea , the wind, the sun of sothern coasts,
other flowers, fascinating with strange smell. fish and fisherboats herbs, smell of freedom
the perfume boutique with labels of the foreign world and new creations of perfume to
attract your love, wondeful exotique names and flakon of glas for getting attractiv and stands
for success  and beauty. later you may have found some very special frequencies when travelling to forign countries, to wildplaces and searching for adventures. th sell of humid earth, the smell of fire
on chharcoal grill, coconut tress and al lot more you never will forget the breeze of the evening of a hot day or the smell of croweded cities or on the grassland with small houses and wild animals......
a lot more, but some special smell you always will keep in mind.

Captain " Sen"

one of our classmate " Sen" was not in the first row anyway later in life he have got a patent as capitan for the very big  freighter ships with different goods , loaded  with coal, mais, wheat, steel, rice etc. in this time he shipped over the ocean no containers on board, from russia to africa, from brazil to
cuba, canada norway ect. And it was the time somebody wrote postcards from many places on the
world, in these days an unknown world for me. So we kept our contact till now, we are oldies.
always he had a special character, a very disturbing guy. But he opened the door to the world for me.
so I kept some of his postcards to report from many  places ......

good african friends

friendly young people who are busy to learn to look for a job, to be able to earn money for their family. they are really good in learning, in communications and work honest without learning or astudy at the university, or special school. Practise and learning by doing. so never they have
the wish to live in another strange world in europe.

an african secret

tigernut or earth-almond


african women, especially the schamanwomen with their great wisdom of
medicine plants and their essences, to use for heath.
when I stayed in Senegal some of them are used to produce a very special
spice with really wonderful aroma. Never I found out which indegriences
they use for it. As i have brought some of it and kept always to remember
this smell. searching my utensils for smoking some of these I found some
nuts, they use tor this special " djuray" . As they do not look beautifull but
the smell is existent inside these nuts. these are almonds or tigernuts a kind of
cyprus grass and down at the roots you find these kind of lumps.
coiling in hot water later cut in very small pieces and mixing up with parfum oil
keep in closed glas bottle. 
On burning charcoal the smoke give all these essences free , for free breathing,
for many other deseases and against the moskito,  an exotic smell, mecine
aphroticum too.  Eucalyptus leaves and bark burning with charcoal a lot more
