Alison Bezzina

She taught us how to smile

She never taught a class, she never raised her voice, (except perhaps to hit the perfect note in a song), and she never wrote anything on a blackboard, and yet, she taught so many people invaluable lessons – lessons we could never find in a book,...

If I were a prophet….

I’ve said this before and, I honestly thought that I wouldn’t say it again (at least not before the inquiry about the Mallia shooting incident is concluded), but here I am, saying it again - this is going to turn out to be one big silly mistake, a...

Nanna’s buggie

When my grandmother was still alive, God bless her soul, I used to look forward to watching the budget speech being read out on TV. Since I was very young and not really interested in what was being spewed out, all I wanted was to sit next to my...

Do you care who Konrad sleeps with?

I truly and honestly don’t give a hoot about which politician is sleeping with whom because, except for a few that I can count on one hand, I have such a bad impression of politicians in general, that an extra-marital affair won’t dent their...

Hunting down my principles

According to dictionary definitions, a ‘PRINCIPLE’ is a fixed rule, a method or practice, an accepted or professed rule of action or conduct, general law or truth from which others are derived. An ‘OPINION’ on the other hand is a sentiment; a view...

Happy Birthday to the love of my life

Around this time of year I’m always tempted to write about the one person whose existence has significantly shaped my life and essentially my entire world. It was on this day, 33 years ago, that my brother David was born. At birth he was suffering...

Listen to the Bishops

This week I found myself in agreement with something that the Bishops of Malta and Gozo suggested. The Bishop of Gozo  proposed that every parish in Gozo adopts a Christian family from countries where Christians are being persecuted. Auxiliary...
