pacific time 2

where ever i go in the world, i meet wise old women. in the golden gate park's japanese tea garden i met a vivid old lady who told me her amazing life story. she emigrated from germany to america after the war about 60 years ago. she married a hawaiian tennis player and lived with him 20 years in Hawaii. since her husbands early died while playing tennis she lives near the golden gate park in san francisco and has a son who is a tennis teacher. she never visited germany again but was overjoyed to be able to talk german with me. we became friends and decided to meet again in the golden gate park.
yesterday there was a party in the house where i am staying this month. my landlady has a fantastic family who joined us towards the evening. i specially got the honor to get to know her mother who is a remarkable woman. she is well over 70 but keeps on traveling to china where she feels at home. we were talking about the manyfold roots which human beings can have; roots which reach far beyond our present lives. this woman has followed her heart and intuition and is radiating peace, warmth and understanding. i was touched by her.
