Towards the Rising Sun
In March 2017, my husband Florian and I embarked upon a two-week journey through the one of the most exciting and mysterious corners of the world (in our humble opinion) – Japan. Visiting this incredible country has always been a treasured dream of mine. This book is an account of our journey, of the places and wonders, small and big, we encountered and experienced. With its hospitality and friendliness of its people, Japan has trully won our hearts.
FundraisingFacebook page to support a fundraising campaign for Tamari & Tebrole, the Siamese twins from Georgia. The original campaign with the total target of EUR 80.000 was launched by the German foundation “Heart for Children”. The funds for a separation surgery of the Siamese twins, born on March 12/2015 in Kutaisi, Georgia, were collected among general population and the German foundations. The girls were connected in abdominal area and shared a liver. In attempt to help raise awareness towards this cause and keep the donors up-to-date on the campaign’s progress I set up a Facebook page in July 2015. The FB page achieved 142 active followers and had a maximum post outreach of 1,000 FB users. The target of fundraising was met by the end of August 2015. While a huge bulk of fundraising activity was carried out by the twins’ godmother Tamuna, FB page was aimed at helping her to spread the word. We are happy to announce that thanks to the tremendous efforts by Tamuna and a circle of her friends the little T & T received their happy ending: a successful surgery was carried out at a hospital in Cologne, Germany, in September 2015. Since then, the twins have recovered completely and are now enjoying the blessing of free movement and happy & healthy life.
This is a compendium of good memories, of vivid pictures
burned into our minds
by rays of gentle California sun.
It is a story of our past which yet remains so present
It is a novel and a screenplay where
WE are the sole writers, heroes, actors and critics.
Let every pixel of it remain fresh and untouched by time
In the treasury of our shared moments.
