Friends…I am amazed by your warmth and caring …It’s the energy that not only feeds your soul but also carries you away into the happiness born out of the feeling of connection, friendship and gratitude. Yes…it’s again this time of the year, when one more candle makes its way atop the birthday cake… My cake is quite full of candles and I am truly hoping I will see even more candles in the coming years…. After all, we need to celebrate our lives and the time given to experience all this wonderful world… Unfolding days are waiting to be filled with friends and family, hours are measured by laughter or a serious talk …letting us experience simple but meaningful truth, seconds move constantly, reminding us of brief moments in time, inviting the infinite number of life possibilities. As I look at the burning candles, I remember the tapestry of stories brought out of the yesterdays shadows of my memories , reminding me of the lessons learned , battles fought ,winnings and failings…bringing me to where I stand today. The way I see it …it’s the “perfect” place for not so “perfect” me… travelling the road full of stumbling, missing the important signs but also , being blessed with more luck than I could ask for and lots of love… I am very grateful for. I can only trust, that this big adventure full of mystery, uncertainty, unforeseen turns and circumstances has-been always waiting for me… I am not going to ask …where it will lead me …because I learned that is not the most important question…nor I will ask to whom it will lead me to…because I know the answer…. It will lead me back to me… where it all started…but very different me…changed by the life lived ….The journey was always within...Never the less it had to be taken. Our intricate paths are crossing, intervined in the dance of life…vibrating faster and faster with the powerful vortex …sweeping away illusions and presumptions… We are the One …only slightly different…. As I am reminded of another milestone…wiser this time to welcome its presence ...I celebrate it by reflection in your eyes, thoughts and wishes…For each one of them want to share more there is, to feel, believe, trust, hope and love. Happy Birthday to all of us…celebrating it one day at the time ….
