Well I just noticed that I last posted in February, so it's about time I guess. Spring is here and this past winter was uneventful, we didn't get that much snow in fact it was quite a dry one.
I have started giving meditation classes at a local yoga studio on Saturday mornings since the opening class when I had 20 attendee's, it has been a bit hit and miss, but I now seem to have 4 regular students and 2 more on the fringes. Hopefully the class will grow after all it's only been a few sessions over 2 months and people are now asking about it.
In March a friend and I from Sarajevo joined 2 other friends in running the Half Marathon in Nish, Serbia, with a time of 2:39 it was my slowest Half Marathon , outside of ultra's to date. However it was my first as a 60 year old so a personal record for that age group :) .
At the end of March, actually on March 30, 2 of us joined the Oneness Home Peace run in Trebinje. The small international team made it to Sarajevo on April 1, where we had meetings with one of the Presidents Zeljko Komsic at his party's headquarters and also the High Representative at his offices.
So far things are moving forward from winter to Spring.

Another catch up

So as usual I spent Christmas and New Year in the UK with my sister and other family. The weather was quite mild, but there was quite a lot of rain. My brother in-law had an accident a few weeks before I went over there. He tore the quadricep muscle on his right leg so he was home the whole time which is quite often not the case at that time of the year. It's always nice to be with family at Christmas.
I had a flight  on January 7 back to Sarajevo via Vienna. However that flight was late arriving and I missed my connection along with 3 other people on the flight from London. We were booked on the evening flight which left on time. But when we arrived in Sarajevo we could not land because of fog and returned to Vienna. I spent the night in the same hotel I stayed in on September 10 2001 before catching a flight to New York on September 11. The next day I caught a now full plane and arrived in Sarajevo.
