    WOW, Gert. You know so many languages. So sweet of you to put in my native language as well. And your message is so true. I'm going to put this in my favs:) Hugs, Emilia PS: The correct translation is 'Cioburile vietii nu pot fi cimentate. '('pisoi' means 'kittens', I don't know what you thought that word meant). Thank you again for writing a translation in Romanian. It was a really nice surprise to see this!:)

    Pieces of our live do seem to remain compartmentalized. Perhaps that is why so many of us have identity crises. We never seem "whole." Very interesting, Gert, and I am awed by all of your translations. I took a bit of French in high school, but the Spanish is easier to translate -- probably thanks to the education you are providing. Your "cream cheese cake" sounds yummy! Enjoy your company today, my friend. Love, Carolyn
