Another year…


Countless nights of salsa dancing… To Sergio Mendez under the stars at Echo Park lake; At Sevilla in Long Beach, Mama Juana’s in Studio City, Wokano in Santa Monica, the backyard in Watts, Senor Fish, the Music and the Disney Center, in Downtown LA, …

Countless hours of and talking, laughing discussing politics, love, relationships, life, finances, family, philosophy, movies, art with friends and family…

Countless hours of cooking and eating stuffed shrimp, macaroni and cheese, stuffed chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, omelettes, cheesecakes, brownies, blondies, cookies, enchiladas, burritos, tacos, pancakes, french toast, sausages, pastas, soups, cakes, short ribs, sliders, potato salad, deviled eggs, veggies, salads, barbecues, sundaes, baked chicken, cocktails and more, with love for loved ones…

Countless hours of reading thousands of pages of spiritual, philosophical, humorous, historical, fictional, instructional, and theoretical writings…

Countless treasured moments of drinking in sunshine, and the glory of nature in the form of the heavens, fruits, the mountains, the oceans, fields, flowers, wildlife, starlight, and rain…

Countless hours of freedom, soaring voices singing, lost in the music, open to the sound…

Countless hours of writing thoughts, feelings, advice, letters, cards, proposals, emails, notes, and messages…

Countless events offering opportunity to gather in love, joy and peace at oceanside, church, pool, park, gallery, home, concert hall, and more…

Countless hours of appreciation of art, dance, music, food, thought, friends, family, nature, life, Him, love, energy…

Life is so beautiful when you can find joy in everything it brings to you, be it a challenge or test of your strength or a magnificent display of its treasures.

 

I’m so very thankful to have enjoyed another year of life on this precious earth!

Contentment is a wonderful thing.
