On the 31th of October 2021, my mother, a long-time Estonian National Opera and Ballet Theater’s prima ballerina, Larissa Kaur, will be 80 years old. Prima ballerina Larissa Kaur has been dancing for more than 20 years on the stage of the Estonian theater. Her roles include the Black and White Swan in “Swan Lake”, the main part in “Sleeping Beauty”, and many other great roles. It was a happy time for the Estonian ballet. That also meant personal close acquaintances with the world-famous ballet artists to my mother, such as Rudolf Nuriev in St. Petersburg. For ten years, Larissa Kaur also danced in Astoria and in the Viru variety theatre.

Someone said that Reagan, Gorbachev and Mandela had the greatest influence on the events of the second half of the last century. They changed the world. Reagan has yet to receive a Nobel Prize. Socialistic Western Europe does not yet understand what this American titan is doing. Gorbachev received the Nobel Prize. He came to give the world a chance to be free.
Estonia and all of Eastern Europe did not miss this opportunity. When I was young, I still remember the times when Misha Gorbachev visited Tallinn. Our historic meeting took place near the Technical University. I was walking with my dog in the Mustamäe forest when a motorcade of large limousines flew through the pine forest towards the sixth building of the university. It was a strange situation. The roads were cleared of snow. Young pine forest Mustamäe, me with a spaniel, winter and snow, and the Kremlin dreamer is looking out of the window! In the eyes of Gorbachev, one could read a gloomy understanding that here, probably, they already live a different life than in the Soviet expanses…
2011 this great man celebrated his 80th anniversary, not in Moscow but in Albert Hall in London. Because he has long been a global man. And his guests were the whole free world.

I light the third Advent candle with the inhabitants of Muuga (Maardu), where many of my like-minded people live. I think that Muuga should receive more attention and care today. Happy Holidays!

Õnnetuseks läksid pärast seda asjad allamäge. Nõukogude Liidu invasioon Afganistani tegi lõpu USA presidendivalimiste aastal edukalt arenenud USA ja Nõukogude Liidu suhetele. USA alustas Moskva olümpiamängude ja Tallinna olümpia purjeregatti boikotti.
Kuid isegi siis ei arvanud keegi, et Carter kaotab Reaganile, kes tundus äärmusparempoolsena, kuid kes seda muidugi polnud. Reagan oli küll veendunud antikommunist, kuid Donald Trump on võrreldes temaga tõesti oma vaadete poolest tunduvalt värvikam.
Carter pidigi jääma pensionile. Ometi tõi saatus ta kätte Nobeli rahupreemia. Ja ehk tema oli tõesti see mees, kes seda vääris. Ta võitles desarmeerimise eest, rahu eest Lähis-idas, oli järeleandmatu süümevangide osas ning inimõiguste eest seismisel laiemalt. Ehk on Jumal talle pikki aastaid kinkinud just seepärast.
