My expectations from Taviani Brothers “Wondrous Boccaccio” (2015) movie were somehow different. True that the modern world is facing numerous plagues, specifically spiritual and economic, so the idea of a new “Decameron” is meant ‘to connect with the idea of escaping the ailments of contemporary society through the power of storytelling and love.’ However the parallel between the 14th century and today seemed somehow distant to me. Brilliant acting.
Elif Şafak’s “Sakız Sardunya” – a fairy tale for 7+ years olds but as a fan of hers, I loved going into this fun world. A book about a smart young girl named after a flower who dislikes her name. And her incredible journey. “Some of her friends were alone, others – unhappy. Some wanted to become doctors, others – architects…”
Sakız knows:”In books there is place for all.”
Easter dates differ because of the different calendars – Gregorian (Catholic) or Julian (Orthodox) used. But that’s not the point of this post, as culture and customs are often family or location specific. The point is about the message in this superb performance of Patriarch Neophyte of Bulgaria.
‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’ – Dr. Seuss.
Quality learning has never been easier and so accessible, as with edX. Founded by Harvard University and MIT in 2012 – edX is an online learning destination with the mission to increase access to high-quality education for everyone, everywhere. I love learning new things and with edX, I would say: the more that you learn, the more you enjoy!

The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns – a book worth not only reading but acting upon by people from all steps of life. And those who can read shall grasp.
The hole in the world – there is a hole and a whole. Some questions when faced with the heart both from the perspective of the here-and-now and eternity ( ∞ ) might indeed change the world or hearts at least. The broken ones…at both ends.
