Cosmic earthquake?

Something must have happened recently up there - a real negativ stellar constellation or something like a cosmic earthquake (would you call this moonquake or starquake?).

Fun aside, there have been so many negative news that happened during the past weeks, that I am kind of afraid of what might come next. Two of my blogland friends and one of my real life friends have lost a family member this week. During the love parade that took place in Duisburg (the city where I studied, about 50 km from here) last weekend 21 people died and about 500 got injured. Two other friends lost some loved pet family members. One of my friends is really sick. I would like to say sorry again for all of you that have lost someone precious. I think of you every day, and hope that you are not too sad.

Compared to that, the issues I am currently dealing with are minor, at least for now. Although they could turn into a major desaster, which really scares me.

So I am kind of in between, worried about the next desaster to happen, or waiting for the next cosmic earthquake that will fix everything again. Today there might have been a small sign of recovery. I had a horse when I was a kid. His name is Manolito. He is a black german pony. And today I found out that he is still alive. He must be about 36 years old right now which is really old for a horse. It makes me really happy.

I hope that this does not sound too silly, but it gives me hope that some nicer things are coming along our way.

    Not silly at all - we have to take happiness where we find it. Will you be able to visit Manolito do you think? That would be lovely for you I'm sure. I'm so sorry you're having a hard time of it at the moment - sometimes it really does seem like everything comes at once - the first half of this year was absolutely the very worst for my partner and I, both minor and major disasters aplenty! (And sometimes those minors can feel worse than the majors!) But we turned a corner a month or so ago and things are on the up. I hope the same happens for you and those around you SOON. Sending you more blogland hugs!

    Nicki, I thought of you when I heard recently of the awful stampede in Duisburg....such a tragedy, and hitting so close to home.
    That IS such a beautiful, positive sign that your childhood horse is alive and well.... Manolito must be a wise, and well-loved horse. That is just incredible to hear this good news after probably many years apart.

    Ach Nicki, das tut mir alles so Leid, aber das mit dem Pferdchen ist doch wirklich ein gutes Omen!

    I'm sorry to hear of your negative news lately. A gentleman that I work with passed away from cancer last week after being diagnosed only 2 months ago. When you hear about things like that, it makes you realize that although your problems may seem overwhelming, they aren't that bad in the big scheme of things - afterall, you're alive! I think the news about your horse is the universe's way of letting you know things are going to get better. It might not be easy now, but you have lots of support here in blogland to help you through it!
