Hope



I made a slide show of the Villa I'm hoping we will get in Lapta, North Cyprus. It is an old villa on over one acre of land. The fruit trees are mature. We are allowed to pick the fresh lemons, oranges, and figs (Jessica loves figs) . The view of the sea looks amazing. There is a baker with in walking distance. We could have fresh bread every morning, and cake to go with our coffee every afternoon. This is the kind of place you could just hang out in. I want to relax and soak in the sunshine. I want to spend hours in the private pool. I want to experience the beauty of old Europe. I don't want to feel compelled to go go go! So I am hoping this is finally the house. There are plenty of things to see and do near this villa, but for me this would be the place I want to spend my vacation. Of course the down side would be coming home to a non villa! I guess a person does not need to eat the finest food everyday in order to enjoy it! Juergen and I ate a 5 star meal at a castle in Belgium 15 years ago. I still remember that as the very best meal I ever had. You don’t need to live your whole life in a villa by the Mediterranean sea…but it would be wonderful to have the experience once. It would be so wonderful to give this experience to my brother. It’s the kind of thing you carry around in your heart. The days you can recall when the sky’s are dark. It’s not just momentary sunshine…it’s a deposit that remains forever.
