So, considering myself to be a philosopher and a spiritual writer and poet, I would need to demonstrate these capabilities - if not gifts. Also, I just love to play with words - and I have half a dozen languages in which I can juggle with. <br /> <br /> For example, the word &quot;<em>Gift</em>&quot; in German means <u>poison</u>! Thus &quot;<em>mein Gift</em>&quot;, <u>my poison</u>, would become <strong>my ego</strong> - which is my poison! On the other hand, poison as such, lies always in the dose, i.e., the quantity. And letting you just have an homeoepathical dose of my ego, may be quite beneficial for you - as it definitively is for me {:-)}.<br /> <br /> Here, I'll avoid writing a lot. However, as all (!?) my stories are either autobiographical or about my way of seeing the world (and yonder), you'll easily find out what kind of a person I am and what happend to me in this more or less adventurous life.<br /> <br /> Nowadays, I consider it to always have been a blessing!<br /> <br /> Peace and Blessings to you and your family,<br /> <br /> Yours<br /> <br /> <em>Gedalyah</em><br /> <br /> -----------------------------------------------<br /> <br /> Hungarian, Yiddish, and Suisse-French<br /> Doesn't really make much sense<br /> To a nine and sixty years young Mensch.<br /> English, German, some Ivrit<br /> Keeps a man on his toes a bit -<br /> And even that is not quite it!<br /> <br /> Druggist, farmer, medical military,<br /> Hazardous cargo, movement therapy,<br /> Performing arts and serving grocery<br /> Paved the way to writing poetry.<br /> <br /> However, of all the experiences yet, <br /> There is one thing I'd like to get:<br /> The one path leading to serenity.<br /> Thank you, O! Master of Eternity!<br /> <br /> And all these Blessings you have granted me,<br /> On my Path to Serenity,<br /> Thank you again, my Master of Eternity!</p>
