I Love Lithuania Social Group Closing - March 13, 2018

Posted by Marina F. on February 21, 2018 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Announcement - This social networking group, I Love Lithuania will cease operations as of March 13, 2018.

A special note from founder Marina F.:

Labas my friends, after nearly nine years I've decided to close this social group. Just dealing with the cost, the work and a few invasive members has helped make my decision. I've contacted members to retrieve their uploaded photos before March 13, 2018.

It's been a honor and privilege to serve this Lithuanian-American community around the world, and I hope to create an interesting site about Lithuania sometime yet this year... it will have the same name but will not have the interactive features that this  social site did. 

iki pasimatymo (Until we meet again),

Marina

Vilnius, Lithuania

In Vilnius the events included ringing of bells, concerts, raising the flags of the three Baltic States, and an address by the Lithuanian President.

    It’s Father’s Day, and my father gave me a strange and wonderful heritage - the rich and somewhat mysterious traditions of Lithuania.  

    Because of him, I spent much of my life explaining that I’m not Lutheran.  I’m Lithuanian.  That my name isn’t Greek.  It’s Lithuanian.  That it rhymes with most inflammatory diseases (bursitis, hepatitis, arthritis and so on).  I also blame him, at least partially, for what I choose to write about.
     My father, like all fathers, wasn’t perfect.  He made his errors, some serious, and there was much he didn’t teach me that he should have.  But in one area he gave me a great gift: He loved the land, and taught me to do the same.  He worked to conserve the wild lands in our county, and he believed in educating us about the need to steward the land well. Because of him I read Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring.  Because of him I learned to pay attention to the creatures I shared the world with.  
     As a writer, that translated into understanding that The Muse doesn’t always appear in human form.  Therefore, years of unusual bird encounters nudged me to write the novel These Dreams, as well as the nonfiction book …
