PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.

Due to family circumstances I won't be available to answer any questions in the comments or on Facebook as often as I have done, at least for the coming weeks. I will look in every now and then but after the loss of my 85 year old mother (whom I cared for for the last 9 years) I have to adapt to a new phase in my life. A lot of teadious paperwork and things to change. It's like a complete re-boot of my life. When it is all done I hope to take a little holiday, preferably to Berlin (hopefully I can meet some of you there when the time comes).

If you have issues with one of the projects that need to be solved then please post on the Facebook group for this website where there are some awesome people around willing to help you out.

  1. I've lost my mother a couple years ago and it leaves a large hole in one's chest contrasted with overwelming waves of unresolved stuff; its a deep feeling of loneliness and even an unexpected feeling of helplesness as the death of the previous generation is the death of a world we once inhabited; you will be bombarded by cherished moments, odd memories, funny sayings, arguments that were not solved but that also stop hurting, sometimes you're going on your everyday stuff and you can almost hear her comment or advise; sometimes people who you did not expect will look at you trying to share a moment or a memory or to find her in you; at times you will have the need of sharing something that she would not be able to see (or you will be happy that she did not got anguish from a dificulty in your life).
    In many ways you will meet her from time to time and at some point her memory will become a source of comfort again
    I hope you can find consolation and resignation soon

    1. Thank you very much for those kind words my friend. Luckily we were always a pretty tight nit family and I was actually there when she expired. I had a very good relationship with her and her passing is something I had been prepared for. Naturally it is still a shock when it actually happens but I take comfort in the fact she never had to go to a care home. She only spent the last 14 days of her life away from her beloved house. I have an older brother who is very good with all the technical and financial things that have to be settled. I wouldn't know what to do without him. So I'll get over this once my life is on the rails again in a few months. I am able to take my mind of things by flying my drones. It takes me out of the house and into nature which is always good. I look forward to getting away for a bit though. I need a change of scenery to clear the mind. But that will come.

  2. Hallo Eddy,
    ich wollte Dir mein Beileid aussprechen!
    Meine Mutter ist im März 90 Jahre alt geworden und hat seit den letzten 3 Jahren stark abgebaut und hat mittlerweile eine leichte Demenz, meine Geschwister und ich kümmern uns abwechselnt um Sie. Ich fürchte den Tag wo Sie hinüber gehen wird.

    Ich habe mir weil ich mich etwas mit dem Tod beschäftigt habe sehr sehr viele Nahtoderfahrung en auf Youtube angesehen, oder Kinder die von ihren früheren Berichten. Ich habe auch Wissenschaftliche Bücher gelesen unter anderen "Pin van Lommel" (Niederländer). All das lässt mich glauben das es weiter geht und das geliebte Menschen sich wiedersehen werden!

    Deine Mutter ist sicherlich stolz und dankbar auf Ihren Sohn. Wünsche Dir viel Kraft, um diesen Verlust zu verarbeiten und zu überwinden.

    1. Vielen Dank für diese netten Worte, Maik. Ich hoffe, du hast recht und meine Mutter ist wieder bei meinem Vater. Das ist ein sehr tröstlicher Gedanke. Ich bin froh, dass ich sie zu Hause behalten konnte und sie nie in ein Heim musste. Und ich bin froh, dass alles schnell gegangen ist.

    2. Ich hoffe, dass du deine Mutter noch eine Weile bei dir behalten kannst. Machen Sie viele Videoaufnahmen von ihr. Das ist schön zu haben.
