Hate is often an obverse form of love.

You hate someone whom you really wish to love

but whom you cannot love.

Hate is a disguised form of love.

You can only hate someone that you have the capacity to love

because if you are really indifferent,

you cannot even get up enough energy to hate him
No remedy for black hate?

Who says?
Just love
And love more,
That’s all.





love has flown
and time
days alone

long days waiting
for love to land
once more
at my door
time has not been kind
no friend of mine
each passing day
another line
skin once tight
now slack
body once firm
now fat
all the potions’ claims are lies
whatever they say
time flies

and love
it’s not just for the young
kid not myself
I have no delusions
it is no illusion
desirability does fade

… with age

but inside

that passion for loving

never dies

Bite lip
Bite tongue
Things on mind
What can be done
When chaos reigns
Fight the tears
Unwilling to share
Unable to burden
The despair
Loath to unload though
Fit to burst
Head explodes
Everyone has lives
Troubles of his own so
Keep it within
A whirling cyclone
Pray goes away
On its own
Dissipates, bursts
No more pain
No more hurt

I came home to this little treat…. aaaaaaaah!

And this one too… double aaaaaaah!

hope they work if you click on them… I’m sorry I don’t know how to embed them directly onto my blog… you should know me by now; blogdom’s biggest computer incompetent!

I know I haven’t been around much… I’m really sorry. I hope to visit everyone over the weekend, but when I said some time ago I may not have much time until August, I wasn’t actually joking. I won’t go into what’s being taking up my time, just think:

family (young and old) = responsibility

I will try to do better. And I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting the other blogs too. A new mrsbg is in the works, but my mind has gone a blank poetrywise and sorry, no 55 this week either.

My two ab fab favs… I am so so missing them and am thinking of flying out there for a long weekend before the wedding which is only in 8 weeks time. I haven’t told my son my idea yet… hmmm

Update: just told him I’m thinking of making a quickie trip. “Okay mum, that’ll be cool and we have a shopping list.” I put the phone down and thought… yeah, let’s do it. I got the last seat on the Thursday afternoon flight in two weeks time (13 days) and will come back on the Monday evening. I called him back with the news a minute later… boom boom… no flies on Ann.

Erm… I haven’t told the others yet… I think I’ll tell them over dinner tonight.

Ooooooh, I’ll be biting lumps out of those gorgeous chunky thighs. I’m sure the first thing Boaz will say to me is, Eifo Luthy? … Where’s Lucy?

I am a naughty girl, a very very naughty girl. Last week I had houseguests staying and guests dining… it was almost like Pesach all over again. I lost the weight I gained over Pesach and then promptly put it back on again. I lurv my cheesecake. I’ve gotta go for a dress fitting next week. I am not proud of myself ::hanging head in shame::

I’ve tried this one too… believe me, it doesn’t work. If I lost a pound for every single tear I’ve shed I’d probably be invisible. Also sitting in the sun believing the fat should melt in the heat does not work either. Doh!

You would think that since I am so obsessed with my weight, or rather my overweightness, I would do something about it it? You would think!

That theory behind this may have worked in the old days before the advent of the Kenwood mixer and the food processor… doh! I love baking. I love my cakes. I love licking the bowl and the spoon and melting that little bit too much chocolate.

And guess what, I have a full house for dinner tonight again… more food, but then it wouldn’t be Shabbat. Think I shall have to come to terms with the fact that I’m a typical Jewish mama and Audrey Hepburn, my ab fab fav chic lady I shall never be… think more like Roseanne Barr… hmmm!

Have a lovely weekend and Shabbat Shalom

Oh my goodness I almost forgot to add some eye candy for my V-Vixens…

the loves of my life

at the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet ~~~ plato

thank you…

... to everyone whose pictures and videos I have borrowed; if anyone would like theirs to be removed, please tell me and I shall be happy to do so

all words here are mine ~ I’ll tell you when they’re not!

from long ago

in case I forget what day of the week it is
