Onwards and upwards
The funeral was really nice, believe it or not - and appropriate, since the person who died was old, sick and ready to fly high, unlike Whitney Houston and so many others who have passed away recently. Death is good and proper and even kind of encouraging, when it happens at the end of a long life. The experience was life affirming. Wow.
Speaking of life affirming, my birthday celebrations are ongoing already, though I won't be 59 officially until tomorrow. Last night dear friends hosted a beautiful dinner and a tribute via poetry so beautiful and loving, it brought tears to my eyes. Tomorrow I will receive massage on my own table here in the chateau because a therapist I know is willing to come over here. Yes! After that, I'll work on one of my very favorite clients of all time, bake a cake, then have drinks and dinner upstairs. It's going to be an all-chateau birthday. Oh yeah!
What is not to love about this fantastic birthday? Life is good and I am grateful. L'chaim and Shalom!!
