Be kind to others

Be kind to others. Sé amable con los demás. Intentions a l ‘autri. Vær snill mot andre. Vertu góður við aðra. Vær venlig mod andre. Fie un fel altora. Budi dobar prema drugima. Jkun it-tip lill-oħrajn.

다른 사람에게 친절. ຈະປະເພດກັບຄົນອື່ນ. ਹੋਰ ਕਿਸਮ ਰਹੋ. Dadi apik kanggo wong. Ia agalelei atu i isi. Hãy tử tế với người khác. Berbuat baik kepada orang lain. மற்றவர்கள் அன்பாக இருங்கள்.

Yiba nomusa kwabanye. Yiba nobubele kwabanye. Ba mosa ho batho ba bang. Aoka ianao ho tsara fanahy amin’ny hafa. Pagmabination ngadto sa uban. Ka kasance irin ga wasu.

Fè kalite bay lòt moun.

Love and peace to all

I am finding it increasingly  difficult to think of things to write about so I thought I would have some fun with it. This is the first in a series of posts that I intend to write to spread a little peace and joy, and have a little fun at the same time.

The theme of my post is in the title, and I am going to add a number of translations. Please forgive me should I make a mistake along the way, there is no disrespect intended.

Love and peace to all. Liebe und Frieden für alle. Amor y paz a todos. Dashuri dhe paqe për të gjithë. Liefde en vrede voor alle. Любовь и мир всем. Љубов и мир за сите.

Love iyo nabad oo dhan. Liefde en vrede vir almal. Uthando nokuthula kubo bonke. Lerato le khotso ho bohle.

бүх хайр, амар амгалан. ຄວາມຮັກແລະສັນຕິພາບທັງຫມົດ. Cinta dan perdamaian untuk semua. すべてに愛と平和. प्यार और सभी के लिए शांति.

Renmen ak kè poze nan tout. Love, a me ka maluhia i na mea a pau.

Guess whose coming to dinner…….

Have you ever thought about who you would ask to dinner if you could ask anyone, living or dead? I have given this much thought and I can bring it down to four I think.

The first of my dinner guests would be David Attenborough, what a truly amazing life he has lead. Imagine the stories he would have to tell about the places he has been, the amazing wildlife he has been privileged to film, the risks he must have taken. This man is a font of knowledge and I will never cease to enjoy his documentaries.

Second on my list would be His Holiness The Dalai Lama. The knowledge he could impart, his insights into all the famous people he has met, the history of those Dalai Lama who came before him, his previous incarnations if you like, and the experiences he has had. The story of his trek from Tibet when it was invaded by Communist China. A truly fascinating yet humble man, the very essence of human kindness.

Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother is third on my list, the last Empress of India, mother of our current Queen. The Queen Mother was born right at the end of the Victorian era, her life spanned the 20th century, she would have met almost all of the reigning monarchs of the world, and a good deal of those who had been deposed, not to mention presidents and other famous heads of state. A truly fascinating and privileged life.

I am a bit torn about who would round out the four, my first thought was the late actress Elizabeth Taylor, just think of the dirt she could dish out on Hollywood, on those truly great movie stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Then there is Pope Francis, another truly enlightened man, or Princess Diana just because she was Princess Diana.

In my heart of hearts I know who number four would be, my late Uncle Max, just because I miss him.
