The Worth of Silence (Extra-Blatt!)


According to the Germans, it is an Extrablatt (by a special newspaper edition)! Because tomorrow we are going to Berlin for a few days, mainly to realize my three-year-old appointments with US Embassy for my visa. Actually, as a German, it’s no problem getting the visa for us via ESTA (my wife already got it), but I was born in Iran, which makes a problem! Therefore, I must do a personal interview to prove if I am qualified for it.

Anyway, it is a long story (if someone might remember that) about my attempt to fly to the USA in early 2020 to visit my brother-in-law and his daughters after almost forty years. But as you can guess, it’s all cancelled plus many further appointments. Now it looks like it will take place.

So! But as it’s not the weekend (my brain is still raw!🥴) and human is a creature of habit, I’ll make it easier for myself and bring some lovely tweets from my Twitter stall. May the force be with you and your finger crossed (for me?😁 ) until we overwhelm all the problems. Take care. 🙏🥰💖🙏🤗

    I hope and pray all goes well. The problems of the world seem to big to imagine, so I’m trying to take care of my little corner. I know you’re doing the same. Blessings.

    • Thank you, dearest Elaine. I’ve already come back from Berlin and the result will be clear in about two weeks. In any case, we had a few nice days in there. Have a good care in your little corner, blessings 🙌 🙏
