Thanks to all the folks from Iceland that gave us more insight to what's actually happening, I really enjoy that about ATS, sharing information with
people in different countries then ours.....even it's sad news we have to share often times, it adds much more perspective to World events hearing
what's happening from the people involved....sad it sounds like things are still un-settled in your country....so dearly wish us all everything
I shared in an earlier post in this thread, lol, probably too much information, my experiences, and Thank-You so much to those that showed compassion
and fairness, because loosing your home is a very "tough pill to swallow", and commend Iceland for making a very positive step in the right
direction to try and correct fraudulent loans, it seems at least some "effort" is being made...
I definately often ponder, if things would have meerily went my way, would I even be here now posting on ATS? It really has reqiured a " complete"
series of life altering events to bring me to this point of understanding. lol, I guess it's that "worker bee" part of myself, I feel "compelled"
to spend my time these days "learning",such a big leap from the pressure and stress I felt when my daughter was little and so much depended on me
making a living. My daughter is grown ,21, although she just moved back home a month ago, lol...which is actually quite positive...
but life is
different, modest condo, exspences kept low, a way more frugal and practical lifestyle.
Anyways, I hope that doesn't sound too gloomy...I'm really enjoying this part of life in the sense that my "priorties" have "radically" shifted,
and I do believe I would NEVER go back to being as "shallow" as I once was.
It's been really wonderful having my daughter near, and she imparted some really interesting "insights" about how she views the Harry Potter books,
( to my shame she had a lovely 4 book set that I never read with her, with any true interest ) Basically, she said...Mom, don't you get it, the
magic school represents the "secret societies, and Harry and friends are the "mutts" trying to bring back harmony and good" in the face of evil
forces..it's all about balance"
She spent the next few hours really explaining the story through her eyes, and I was completly amazed, proud, and in awe of how interesting her
perceptions were/are and how much she really understood, lol, I took notes on the insights she shared, they were so deep...maybe with her help we can
create a thread that re-examine's Harry Potter's "message", and what it "implies" to kids.
No doubt other threads exist about this, and sorry to veer so far off course from original subject......
