Great Minds are Young

Belonging is one of the most important human needs, for it defines the identity of people,ย and makes them feel connected, accepted, recognized, and secure.

One of the best and most genuine connections and relationships one can make is with Nature! The openness, purity, transparency and generosity of this relation makes one lose the concept of time and space, and feels protected, secure and well taken care of.

Olive picking is one of those activities in nature that deepen your sense of belonging and make your pride soar high, especially if you were picking your own olives!!ย The number of olive trees or the area of the olive garden cannot matter less. It’s the age, the identity and the history behind that tree that make a whole difference.

What do you think?


Last night I dreamed of my late grandmother! She was living at my aunt’s house wearing a coat that made her invisible for the people that knew she was dead. Only my aunt knew she was always there and could talk to her and hug her and enjoy her company. When I knew she was there I was overwhelmed and hurried to see her. She opened the door for me but she didn’t look like herself. She looked young and her face was very different, but I felt it was her. I hugged her and kissed her real hard. It was a great feeling that filled me with peace and serenity. I then realized how much I missed her and missed her tenderness, support and wisdom!
I asked my aunt how come she was still there while she was supposed to be in heaven. She answered with a smile, “it is God’s will, why should I interfere or question? God knows when to keep her up, and when to send her as my angel to help me and watch over me. I love the fact that she’s still with me; I never feel alone or unprotected.”
I woke up later with a smile on my face and started praying. It was the first time I dream of a dead person or a ghost and don’t panic or freak out, but instead feel positive, protected and peaceful.
I wish my dream comes true and my beloved grandma would be my very special guardian angel that is always around watching over me. I wish that and I know and feel that her beautiful soul is always around watching over us all. I learned a lot from her and still learn every time I remember a word or an act of hers.
I love you sweetest grandma and I miss you tremendously! It’s been seven years since you left us, but you’ve always been in our hearts and minds an extremely vivid image that helped us move on, surmount a lot of difficulties and avoid a lot of mistakes. We all are better people because of you!
I love you and I truly miss you! Keep watching over me and my family ๐Ÿ™‚
