Mister Greenhat – II Chapter

Good evening, my lovely friend,

Today I will share the second chapter of my small story. If you have not read the first you can do it here.

Anyway, it is not so big and I would like to hear your opinion, my dear friend.

Chapter II

“ Where are we going?” – the boy had tried to pry out following the man. They already were walking some hours in the city. Greenhat had the map in the hands, but every time, turning to one side, got lost. While stopped near one brown building and looked to the showcases, where were hanging expensive clothes.

“ Why did we come here?” – Isaac was curious. The man only smiled and opened the door. The bell rang reporting about incoming customers, because of that a seller came very fast and began to jump around Greenhat.

“ Welcome to my shop. I am a Master Knijo. How could I help You? Did you come to order a new coat, Mister? Or for a new trousers?” – he could not shut up and all time was talking. Isaac was standing behind Greenhat and only heard this seller’s name showed himself.

“ Knijo? What the strange name,” – he commented too loud paying attention to himself. The Master got frozen and after angry squinted looked to another customer.

“ Who is talking? It seems to me, or to my shop came a huge dirt ball?” – and dramatically grabbed his hair from the face again turned to older customer. “ So, what would You like, Mister?”

“ This young master needs new clothes” – the man said cheerfully. With one hand fixing his hat another put on the boy’s shoulder.

“ I am sorry, but I am not sure, if I can find in my shop something for… this” – stated the Master Knijo frowning. Greenhat thinking touched his beard and evaluating look around the shop.

“ Yes. I think, You are absolutely right. We will find another place,” – and taking the boy’s hand turned to go out, but before behind the back he had heard an overwhelmed voice: “ To my mind, I would find something for the boy. Give me a minute.” The man satisfitied sat down on the wooden chair near the mirror. Isaac stayed to stand exploring the shop. From outside it was almost destroyed, but from inside here was very clearly and esthetic. Every stuff, as the clock with cats, was so simple, but this place looked abnormally. The child already tried to touch the vase painted in hieroglyphs, but heard the angry voice: “ Do not touch. I do not want you to make it dirty.”

A little bit upset the boy pulled his hand away and looked to the mirror. Too large the coat of Greenhat covered all holes of the boy’s clothes, but being barefoot, dirty cheeks and long disorderly hair did not look beautiful.

“ Here, take this,” – said the Master Knijo giving to Isaac black trousers. Blue sweater, shoes and grey coat. At first the child looked at the Master, after asking turned to Greenhat. Saw the agreement in the man eyes he took the clothes and went to the dressing cabin., where showed the Master Knijo.Playing with his new image in front of the mirror Isaac was very happy. It was the first time he dressed the clothes like these, but his mood changed fast. The boy looked upset, because of what Greenhat asked him: “ What happened, my young wayfarer?”

“ These clothes… Are You sure I can have them?” – in the palm of his hand was pinched the edge of the coat as he would be ready to say goodbye to him at any moment. The man put his hand on the boy’s hair and said gently: “ Sure. Why are you saying so?”

“ Because I am dirty and these clothes are new,” – whispered the child lowering his head. The man again fixed his green hat and takind Isaac’s hand said.” Let’s go. We already have to do something with your hair.”

“ What is about money?” – asked The Master Knijo. Greenhat turned to him.

“ Money? I think, we already have payed,” – said. The Masted understanding nothing only blinked his eyes.

“ You did not apologize,” – explained the man showing to the standing boy.

“ For what?” – still could not understand the Master Knijo. Greenhat dressed his coat, which had given to the boy, and putting his hands in the pockets answered: “ For disrespect for your customer. Or may do You want, that everyone would know, how you behave with your guests?”

“ But he is only the boy…”

“ He is the same human as we are,” – Greenhat interrupted. The Master only looked to Isaac with anger, who covered himself behind the Greenhat’s back, and said: ” I am sorry, Mister Customer.”

The boy smiled and turned leaving this place. Greenhat only put the money on the table and without any word also left the shop.

” Thank you,” – said Isaac taking a warm Greenhat’s hand.

Everyone deserves to be happy. I hope, my friend, You liked it. And I will be waiting for Your comments. And do not hesitate to show me my English language mistakes.

With love,

My confession. Or a new book?

Hello, my dear friend,

I am not sure if I have said it, but… I just wrote a book. And I hope to publish it one day… It was really hard work and what I can say, if you do not like to write, do not get a pleasure from this, it will be very hard for you. Anyway, you can try. And I will be waiting for your works.

But now I just wanted to share with some thoughts. After this book I began to write my way to the faith and… Of course it is written in my mother tongue, but I have translated a little. So, sorry for my English… Here is my beginning…

Hi, my dear friend,

The clock shows 1:57 a.m. And if you are here, you can see, I am not asleep yet. But now I want to talk about another thing. My lovely friend, take a coffee, sit down and listen. I will tell you my story. Call it my confession. But be silent. No one has to know it.

It happened inadvertently. Or is it exactly what is called destiny? The occasions affecting the future have been planned? Or may is it society’s manipulation? Alexander Dumas had said: When randomness is related to genius activity – this is called destiny. Did you notice this passive manifestation of genius? I do not too. Because I do not believe in destiny. A destiny is a planned thing you cannot change. Control maniac would not like it at all. But I tend to believe that there are no coincidences, as a destiny. There are statistics, probability theory and combinations. In my case, the story-line evolved into one of the possibilities what that led me to a certain way in a certain place. Or may it had to be so? May Plato’s idealism is too abstract? An abstract rationalism? Nowadays I would call Platonism’s limits so. Or may in the current world an absurd rationalism is sought to be returned? But basta questions.

My random acquaintance with one girl has yet been started at school. We both had a deeper course of history. A half year we were learning without knowing about each other ‘s existence. But one day she came, sat down in front of me and after a few minutes turned to me asking if I have taken a book. Finally, we were analyzing mercantilism, imperialism and coming capitalism. Is it not fun? You are reading about Great Depression and Cold War, but with next you sitting neighbor you start to discuss about Christianity. I have to confess, at that time I had no perception about religion. You know, it would be as if you have had a recipe, that would be like an idea, a cake as followers, but you have never thought who was a creator. Because people have enough narrow-minded. If here is a flower, they do not see the roots. Only beauty and colors. And you know, the baker may differ from the recipe creator. A Creator is a founder, and a baker is just a loyal messenger…

Of course, here is not a lot. It is not easy to translate, but I wanted to share with my idea. I wanted to show how narrow-minded I was. How I came to my current mind. And may one day I would translate more, but now it is enough. I am tired.

My dear friend, stay positive. And think more. Read more, learn more… Because you have so many opportunities.

With love,

Yours Rya

One chinchilla and two dogs

Hi, my dear friend,

How are you doing? I am fine. Two days ago I became an owner of one small chinchilla. Can you believe? Because I still can not.

How did it happen? I will tell you. Listen.

Six days ago here was my birthday. But I decided to celebrate on Saturday with my friends. And… Four days ago one my friend has written to me maybe I know someone who would take a chinchilla. Because she did not have an opportunity to take her. Yes… It is a girl. And her name is Smalsutė. But you can call her Smalcy.

When I got her message, I was on the way to Vilnius city, four hours with a bus. I had problems with my studies and I was a little depressed. And I was not thinking too much. That second I wrote I will take her… And I do not regret. She is an amazing creature.

Two days ago they brought her as for my birthday. And my dogs were so scared.

They could not understand what it is. They saw only one small ball which sometimes was moving. But today they have more courage to be near Smalcy.

I am not sure about what I am doing. But now I have my own fantastic four. Yeh, I will be a fourth member.

Or I could be Will from Witch series. She was my favorite character.

My lovely friend, maybe sometimes it is better to do not think too much and just do it? If you can help to someone, take care of someone, why do not do it?

I am happy that I did so. From childhood I had a dream to have a squirrel. I do not know why. And now it happened.

God knows my dreams. I believe. I hope so. And I say Thank You for this amazing creature.

Take a look to my new family’s member and be happy, my dear friend.

With love,

Yours Rya

Stop and listen

Hi again, my dear friend,

How are you? How is your job, family, friends?.. When the last time you have asked how is your mother or father feeling? Or how you could help to your friend? Or why your sister or brother is so upset?

When the last time you have asked yourself, are you happy?

When the last time you have cried?

When the last time you have been angry?

When, my lovely friend, the last time you have said to yourself, you are amazing?

Can you remember? No?

Then I will say it to you. Just listen.

Maybe now you are thinking you can not do it. You are depressed or upset. You have problems and do not have a time for the rest.

But close your eyes for five minutes. Imagine yourself. Imagine your smile. Imagine people around you… Who do you see?

Think about happiness. Do not think about problems. Every problem is solved. It is only materialism. After some months you will not remember it.

Think about your goals. What do you want to do today? Tomorrow? Another week? Another month? Are you working for it? Are you trying to change something? Or you only try to solve your problems? Remember. After one problem comes another one… It is life…

But think. Are you still thinking? About what? About people around you? Are you afraid to disappoint them? Do not be… They will support you.

Think. Do you want to change something? Just do it. Now. Today. You do not know, how? Call to your best friend, sister, brother, father or someone else and talk. Talk about your dreams…

Good people will be near. Toxic people throw away from your life.

My dear friend, have you spent that five minutes in silence? Think, how much time you spend for yourself every day? Only you and your mind? How much?

I will share with you with my own story.

It is not long.

I know, some people are afraid to talk about their life experience. I know, how hard it can be. But, it happened.

Maybe you have a good family… Me too… Now…

I will not explain everything from my life. I just will say, that from childhood my step father every day has said to me, everything what I can achieve is to become a stripper. No one has heard it. No one has believed to me. He was talking so only when I was alone. And many years I was growing with this thought… I need to admit, it was painful. I was growing in hatred… But I have too much love… Love for people, nature and all this world… I know, I should hate people, but I can not…

My dear friend, people are amazing. Just not every one can solve his problems… Just not every one is strong… Just not every one can admit his weakness… But you can… Because when you admit it, you become stronger. And you will be… You will achieve everything, what you want.

Just listen… Listen you heart. And be happy.

With love,

Yours Rya

Church and some dialogues. Or maybe is it the beginning of my faith?

Hi, my dear friend,

I have one story for you. Today was a unique day. Today I have been in the church, today I met person I have not seen for a long time.

First of all, how did I decide to come there? Because only two days ago I have written I do not like churches. But I will say one thing – I came not to the church, I came to people. You will ask what is a different? I will answer – I was not there as a person from church society, I was as a friend, who could talk and share with his/ her thoughts with good friends after the pastor’s words.

I came 30 minutes before. I took my tea, my note book and sat down near the window in the hall. I had some ideas for writing. Have I said to you I am writing a book? Cha, would you buy it? Do not worry, I am joking…

Yes, and them to me came one person, which I could not call as a friend, but also as an unknown. He was one leader from Christian youth group. We have never talked as today. And he allowed me to understand one simple thing – I have to work for my goals. Yes, sometimes we are thinking it should be easier, why is it so difficult? But do not cry, do not complain. Work. And basta.

That guy gave me many examples and motivation and I was thankful for that dialogue, because now my goals have a hard time…

But it is not all. I want to share with some pastor’s thoughts:

Happy people are not realistic. God too. And also Jesus.

We do not have to find bad things. Look at the good for being happy. Throw away toxic thoughts. Analyze, separate and do not let them to come back.

Have for yourself at least 5 minutes in silence. Without music, people and toxic thoughts. And if they come to your mind, do not be angry. It is normal. We are just humans.

Realize why you have that toxic thoughts. Maybe because of your ” friend” who says to you, you can not do it, do not try, you are not enough smart… Or because of your own self-doubt. If it is so, maybe you did one mistake – you made it on the things you do the best. Imagine, you are very good in a graphic design and all your self-confidence was created on it. And one day you decide to change something. You start a new job or find a new hobby, and in the beginning you are not so good anymore as you were in a graphic design. You do mistakes and your self-confidence is going down.

The pastor has said, if you want to create a self-confidence, create by God. God will support you…

I know, sound weird. Even from myself… 2 years I am trying to do it… And I am still on the way… Just maybe I need to take more time then other?..

But after I have had an amazing dialogue with my old friend… We met in the church and went to one coffee… We were sitting there 6 hours and just talking about music. Can you imagine, I know him a few years, but we have never talked about music and today I understood we are so similar. I want to share with some words from our dialogue:

A Christianity does not limit you. You can listen music what you want. For God it does not important. It is important only for our church society what is not important for you. ( We both are a hard metal and rock lovers, so, sometimes this music opposes to Christianity.)

If you do not like drama, let’s come back to the classic. Did you watch The Watchmen?

If you want to read people, look how they behave with their friends.

I took this book again. I hate marketing. It manipulate me.

So, for today that is all, my dear friend. I hope, I gave you some good ideas or thoughts. Have a good night.

With love,

Yours Rya

Story of Bon Bon

Hello, my dear friend,

First of all, let me say, I am so happy, that you are here. And I do not want to moralize you. I only want to show, how much we, people, can do.

And I do not talk about saving our Earth from Global warming, pollution, tuberculosis, corruption or coming ( or not) Third World War. No, I am not talking about so global things. Enough to look around yourself. Not only we need to get help. Not only we want to be saved.

My dear friend, look around the streets, animal shelters, your neighbors houses. While you cry for your shoes, your hair, your clothes, here are many pets, that do not have food, toys and normal family.

I agree, here are many children too who had not happy childhood and good parents. But let’s be realistic – to adopt a pet is easier than a child. And at least you will make someone happy. Someone, who will love you forever.

But like I have said, I was not ready to moralize you. Here is my story, how I first time met Bon Bon.

In 2017 summer I decided, I do not want to work, I want to do volunteering. Before I have never tried it, because my family was against that, but finally I did it and finding one of animal shelters in my city, I called to them with question, maybe I could help with something. And I was so satisfied running to one organization next day.

As I remember, all my life I love animals. I always wanted to have a dog or a cat. That day was memorable to me. Because I met my small westie dog ( The West Highland White Terrier). When I asked about him, the leader of this organization has said, he is sitting here already two years and no one put him. Pure westie was sitting there two years and, my dear friend, do you know, why?

It is not because he is angry, he does not love people or is not smart, because it is absolutely on the contrary.

My dear friend, it is only because we, people, are used to have new things. Pityingly I can say that animals for us are just things. And when we are tiered of them, we throw them away. As it was with Bon Bon. So cute name for so long story. Did you know a bonbon is a sweet or small confection, especially a small bun coated in chocolate?

But… Returning to our story about Bon Bon. Amazing dog, amazing mind, amazing creature, which had terrible past.

At first this puppy squad was made for business. People, knowing that animals are helpless, used them for their own purposes. Bon Bon was one of them.

But someone called to the organization of saving animals and all dogs were taken away to animal shelters.

Two years Bon Bon was waiting for someone who would take him at home. His only dream was to have a family. And when the first time I saw him, I fell in love. After another three days Bon Bon already was at our home. He did not know, how to play, how to walk and where to sleep. He was afraid, we will take away his food and will leave him on the street after first walking outside. But now he is happy. He is a part of our family.

My dear friend, I am not waiting for good comments or respect. I just wanted to say, do not care only about yourself. You can do more, than you can imagine.

And as has said Antoine de Saint-Exupery: ” You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”

With love,

Yours Rya
