03 December


It’s Aïda’s birthday today. The teller of snail jokes. The laugher of her own jokes. It’s a cold day where she is. The day started out with some level of unsurety … it definitely ended with something more concrete. A good birthday. To new chapters, new beginnings, new experiences!!!

Today had me involved in quite a few interesting and challenging conversations. I wasn’t planning on it. I didn’t think it was going to. But somewhere at the back of something I felt that it possibly might happen. Going with the river of grace … let if flow … let it go … let God.

I also heard about a concept … A Negativity Fast and a Positivity Feast. Concepts to be explored. Sounds like it should be signed, sealed and delivered. How different my outlook on life would be … hmmm … worth implementing for a certain time.

There’s a spot on my left hand that’s been itching for the better part of three weeks. I’ve never experienced something like this before. I’ve heard all the tales. It’s been three weeks. I wonder why it itches and I wonder how long it has to itch before I go to the doctor to find out if there’s actually something wrong. What do you think?

It’s my friend’s birthday. Our relationship started out in a choir. in 2003 I received a phone call from a person who asked me to audition and join the choir because there’s a girl my age who is not really mixing with anyone and she was sure that I would be able to help this girl get along with the other choir members. I thought auditioning was a great idea since I had just stopped playing in the wind band. And it would be fun to get back into a choir. I auditioned. I got in. I got placed right next to her. She irritated me for months thereafter but also kinda became my friend then … a friendship that deepened, developed, grew … through boyfriends, into marriage, parenting and relocating to a different country. The journey continues. Today was a good day to have a birthday for her. I know it’s a fantastic one!

Choirs and orchestras are life!
I miss the lion.
Positivity Feast and Negativity Fast to be implemented on 01 January 2021.
