Old post reposted: “Originally posted on July 23, 2007” – Finally found one of the old posts that has been destroyed. This post was attacked when it was on Blogger Blogspot and now I was able to repost…
I sat and drank my famous cup of coffee, then I started thinking. Why did I come to Russia? The most obvious reason is that I have fallen in Love with the most beautiful Woman in the World, but at my age, is there more to life than just blind love? No! (There is Not!)
I had made up my mind many years ago to never fall in love again. I had been through enough. So I had a life that was comfortable and safe.
Then I met Svet, by pure luck and my life changed for ever. Svet was the catalyst to bring me to Russia. Now the question is, Will I stay in Russia? Yes!
For you see Russia is more than just a place, Russia has become my home. The saying, “Home is were the heart is.” is very true.
I look at the sky in Russia and it feels good. I buy vegetables from the local market and they taste good. I see strange homes and buildings, but they do not feel strange. They seem normal! I look at huge high rise flats and I enjoy looking out over the city at 20 stories up.
Then I look at my wife and my dog Boza! I call them my two Turkeys!! Posted on July 23, 2007 That’s when I realize that I would live anywhere in the world with them. All the other items are just icing on the cake as we say!
So, “Home is where the heart is!”
PS: Wish Boza was still here…
