Mέτρον άριστον...

Mέτρον άριστον!!
Moderate is best!!
What a deep meaning and I didn't listen to these true words, ever!
For almost thirty years I was an athlete. I thought, that my bones are made of steel..
Now, having, since January, a bad injury, I cannot write for a few weeks.
And most of all, not follow you, my dear friends!!
But... The Bitch will be back... soon!!

And here is another poem (won't kill you, to read it)..

Then and Now.
In younger days I was happy in the morning,
wept in the evening;
now that I am older,
I begin my day in doubt,
but its end is holy to me and serene.

Friedrich Hoelderlin

  18. Liebe Monika,

    mit einem tiefen Seufzer gelesen und verstanden...

    deine Rachelako

  19. Rachelako,
    es faellt mir noch sehr schwer, aber ein "oller
    Knochen" heilt noch schneller, oder?

  20. My favorite quote is "the only constant is that everything changes"! If we are aware that everything changes we make adjustments in our lives to protect our bodies from excess and we accept the change that will happen!

    I hear your pain that comes from dealing with this change and wish you acceptance of what is now. Forgive yourself for changing, you did nothing wrong, then you were able to play (a lot!!) now you may have to learn to appreciate watching, there is nothing wrong!

  21. Tasos,
    true words "the only constant is that everything
    But I have to deal not only that I cannot play
    but in this very moment cannot walk..
    Thank you for your comment!

  22. Compliments for this nice picture,
    your blog is excellent.

    greetings and kisses, Joop
