T W E N T Y - S I X - L E T T E R S
I am really, really grateful for a simple encounter at a little, local coffee shop back in 2008. And for a whack on the head that I got one year ago... today. With yellow tulips. Funny the turns that life takes. The surprises it has in store. If this lasts one more day or till I'm 95, ce n'est pas important. I am blessed and very, very lucky. Already. But most of all grateful. Marc Broussard has a song, and apparently yes, there is 'hope for me yet.' Scrap your script of life. Go with your gut. Let things happen. Feel the fear and, yes, do it anyway. Let go. Hang on. Listen. Follow. Ask for strength. Patience. Allow yourself to be guided. Keep your eyes open. Go for it. And be grateful for this moment, however it unfurls, this moment is your life. Make it a bon 'journey'. So, yes, jump. And if you break your leg? Well, don't jump like that again. But what if. One time. You jump. And you fly? What if.
'21'... To the one who lights up my life. Who took a chance on me. Who calms me down. Lifts me up. And makes me laugh. Really hard. You are amazing. I'm so glad you are in my life. I'm ylp and very lucky.
