One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

Why, hello old blog! I'm just sneaking over here to indulge my own piteous self-pity. Guess what? The entire town is covered in a blizzard! Every school in town is shut down, and many businesses, too. The university is closed, as well. Guess where my husband is? Yes, he is at his office at the university, having plowed through the snow in his trusty whatever-the-Mercury-version-of-a-Ford-Taurus-is. Tenure rocks. And, by the way, a few comments on my last post clued me in to the fact that some of you may not realize that I haven't actually dropped off the face of the internet. I'm just mainly updating the other blog, and keeping this one for sentimental purposes. And also for posting stuff that will be deleted upon full realization of how very pathetic this is.

I was so surprised to see a new post here that I panicked and shut the browser tab!

Nice to see you back here once in a while!

Hope the kidlets are enjoying the snow more than the adults!

well, maybe we should not be complaining about 12 degree Celcius and rain in Berlin --- sounds snow isn't always fun, either :(.
I'm glad you are still keeping this blog - I just love everything about it; its design, its title, its history...

Bless you this New Year from the city of Jerusalem, the city of Jesus Christ, although I am a Muslim youth, but this did not prevent the celebration of the new year and the birth of Jesus Christ-peace be upon him, I wish prosperity and happiness of all the inhabitants of the land and freedom for people in the occupied Palestinian territories.
