Starting with the bang! :)



Yes, it's past midnight here and I stumbled over yet another milestone in my life. Ok, being 40 (no matter what calculation one might be using) is some sort of a turning point, because - if I take a look at average and expected life span - I have entered the second half of my life. But that about covers it when it comes to big words and big emotions. If you know me a bit, and I think that some you do already, you know that my only goal, my only mission in life is to enjoy it. As much as I can. And as often as I can. Because, the way I see it, I won't be getting any second chances. And I've got so many good things going on right now I should and could only be looking forward to the years ahead of me. No matter how fast they fly. Anyway, yes, life should be about fun and in my book fun can only be enjoyed with other people.

People. The core of my existence. And people are also the reason for this post which would probably happen in a slightly different form who knows how many days later. If at all. But you all just made it happen. I am still smiling when I think of all the text messages and cards and little notifications on certain sites and emails and... whoknowswhatelse hit my heart in the last few days. And then sweetest little things like "hey, get on Skype, I want to be with you when you turn 40" or "no, I am not going to bed, I will wait with you in ispq till midnight" and all the sweetness that gathered in my heart in Padova. Must be this age thing or - as in Past Forgetting - this darned sand in my eyes, but I do feel a little teary now.

It feels so good to be appreciated and loved. It really does. And I thank you all for that. I just hope I am able to give some of that back.

I don't believe that you're 40.
But I don't believe that I am either. Ha.

Wow, you might get on skype??? that would be awesome! I know you must have a looonnnnggg list of people who would love to skype with you, but perhaps someday I could be among them.
