dear mother

well, it is not always easy to become older, is it? especially if  you need some assistance in daily life affairs. thanks to my youngest brother and his wife our ailing mother is still quite fine, still among family and still healthy enough to walk through the day, remember all of us children ... and smile from time to time :o)

and it is so easy to make you a pleasure today, dear mother. a short walk, a cup of coffee and a cake and you are happy. it used to be more difficult before :-). happiness is state of mind, isn't it? the whole your life could be easier and more cheerful if you would allow more joy and easiness to yourself and to us, i guess, dear mother.
i was so happy to spend few days in early may with you in bratislava. we walked a lot at the river danube banks (dunaj, donau), explored the whole mountain park (horsky park), spent a lot of time the in the museum of carpathian germans in the old zuckermandl district. it was interesting for me to learn, that not only our native zips (spis) region in the eastern slovakian mountains was settled by germans many hundred years ago. also in today's slovak capital bratislava were germans the majority even when the first czechoslovak state has arisen in 1918, ...
