Vale ~ Mille...

Mille's beloved Surf Beach

VALE ~ This morning I received the very sad news that our neighbour ~Mille~ had passed away. Mille had been coming to this area for 35 years in the house next door to ours. My Heart and Prayers go to his Widow Ivka and their Family...they were here every second weekend...and sometimes in between. I couldn't leave this day without remembering Mille ~


You would know the Secret of Death,

But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the Heart of Life?

The Owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto

the Day cannot unveil the Mystery of Light.

If you would indeed behold the Spirit of Death,

Open your Heart wide unto the Body of Life.

For Life and Death are One,

Even as River and Sea are One.


Kahlil Gibran ~1833-1931

Lebanese Poet, Artist and Mystic


And in Mille's Words ~Take it easy my good people~

You must be missing something in your daily life without Vale Mille. I received sad news today too. My very good friend MIL passed away last night. She had also lost her Uncle a few weeks ago as well. Sad news all around - Nat

Very sad news Dzintra. I had some wise words from my freind Bernice recently, of her darling daughter, she said "Anyone who was loved, is not lost". Maybe while you think about how he touched your life, you might create some little art work in honour of Mille. Kath x

Thank you for coming to my blog and giving me the hope that this is a good idea! I have to wait for this weekend to post, since I am a teacher and I am back from a nice long spring break! I will continue to give my friends the opportunity to write from their hearts! Blessings and my condolences. Anita
