WP_000107β–Before we begin, a kind request: play the track below called “Ομορφοφτέρουγο”

 

. Thank you.

There are times when messages of truth & light come so unexpected in space and time that is almost scary how easily we can pass them by…

Personal story, from just a few days time ago : I am visiting my parents and around noon here comes Bill jr, my almost 7 years old nephew returning from school. After spending sometime with them, I’m getting ready to leave, gearing up for the motorcycle ride back home. Bill: “I know you have to go and probably there isn’t enough time for something I want to tell you. But it’s ok.”
