Its been almost a week since I arrived...I was going through some of my entries in my personal diary and I shake my head in disbelief at how much things have changed mashalla...its been quite a trip...2007 has by far been one of my most enlightening journeys.. Its one thing to experience life outside of your own fishbowl and quite another to live it in that glass..the best part is that like a spectrum of extremes Ive been from one end to another and today I find myself in a zen like state of mind...Ive reached my balance..Life couldn't get any better than it is right now. My thoughts have materialized into a definite plan...Ive already chosen my new years resolutions carefully and am embracing what's to come...I know the new year will bring so many unexpected surprises and that's what Ive loved about life...you honestly never know what state of mind you will wake up to tomorrow...just when I thought the end of this year was drawing to a close, the winter breeze blew in some stunningly beautiful magic in so many forms into the past month that changed absolutely everything..restoring my faith in life and in my recent decisions as well as grounding me to reflect on the multitude of blessings and chances that I find in my way every single day...Nyxx put it well..everyday you wake up is another chance to pray. I believe its also another chance to love...to embrace...to take whats with you..shed your skin and morph into another more fantabulous you =)
I leave you with a woman who has morphed over the span of her twenty year career and who began to shed her skin while dealing with the difficult death of Micheal Hutchence lead singer for INXS who was her lover and mentor...shes faced adversity in the public eye which I think is one of the hardest things to cope with..managed to bounce back every time and is one of the sweetest scandal free women in the industry..Ive been a fan of her music since her first release in 1988 and this is a tribute to her new album "X" that was released last week in london and is already creating a storm especially in my car lol. This is her first album after her imminent struggle with breast cancer and her much publicized break up after a 4 year relationship with french beau Oliver Martinez. In the debut song "2hearts" she morphs into the role of reprising Marilyn Monroe and she looks fantabulous!
I love peaceful nights..I love the world when its asleep and Im submerged in the privacy of my thoughts...set them free and revel in the calmness that envelopes...late nights and parisian music...parisian anything...Ive always loved how a whole nation can live their lives in the pursuit of pleasure and lifes little luxuries...not a care in the world they throw away their inhibitions and live life to the fullest experiencing and savoring every single delicious moment...what a life to lead...what memories to look back on when you sit years ahead.. once more enjoying another soothing night..
Here are my memoirs..
