i’ve had a good night. a friend took me to dinner at a local bistro with maybe 12 small tables. it was warm and fun on an otherwise damp tropical night. an elderly and fascinating couple sat next to me speaking French… i worked hard today and i am making a conscious effort to be positive and focused and do what has to be done in the midst of dreaming of what i’d like to embrace. i have had an eventful and powerful experience of life and as my birthday again draws near on January 30, i am thankful for all of the chapters that have unfolded. so much of life is suffering. let us grab the small moments of peace and close our eyes and savor the moment. no matter how small. peace.
