"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light." -Albert Schweitzer
"Ten thousand flowers in the Spring The moon in Autumn A cool breeze in the Summer Snow in the Winter If your mind is not clouded by unnecessary things This is the best Season of your life."-Chinese Poem
"What I really want is to have parallel lives. To not have to make a choice, to experience everything."-Pauline Kenny*
Often I dream of a parallel life. One that allows me to be in several places at the same time. Sometimes in that dream I'd like to be in Coogee Beach, Australia, where my youngest daughter Athena lives.
I dream of seeing Mat and Athena smiling like this:
Other days I dream of a life in Italy. I am walking down a street perhaps in Florence, the city where my other daughter Aria lives.
In that parallel life I see Aria standing in the sunshine with Daniele and they look like this: If I can't have a parallel life then I am greatful for the times when I am together with both my girlies in our own backyard.
Loving the times when both my girls come home.
(Athena and Mat will be home for the Thanksgiving holidays and Aria and Daniele will come home for Christmas. )YAY!!!
I believe in love and kindness, family first, deep meaningful friendships, counting one's blessings and giving to others what you yourself need. I strive to see life as a glass half full. I am very grateful for the life I have and all the wonderful people that make this grand adventure so worthwhile.
