Close your eyes and imagine we are together sitting at “Café de la Grande Plage” in Biarritz, France having a coffee/tea/drink (your choice) – I’m having a Campari & grapefruit juice and we start talking.
You ask and I answer:
I am: a woman in not my best days, but I haven’t passed my best before date yet …
I know: that life isn’t fair, but I also know that we are able to change a lot for many …
I want: to stop all evil; like wars, abuse, hunger, thirst, illness, homelessness, violence and slavery – and I want more sex! *smile
I think: very little – and act too quick too often
I have: a second chance on life …. plus a generous heart and soul
I dislike: liars and dishonesty plus snakes … yeast and pastry
I miss: my old life, before the cancer and its aftermaths – without a bladder that leaks, bleeding, support tights and numb feet
I fear: for heights where I can survive and become handicapped and my cancer, mostly the package it comes in
I feel: very happy and content …
I hear: constant buzzing ( Tinnitus), but my music is louder
I smell: newly brewed coffee
I crave: chocolate, chocolate …. Ice cream and ice cream
I search: for more understanding
I wonder: if my lottery numbers will come up tongiht
I regret: that I never wrote that letter … to that special man when I was 22.
I love: my mum, my friends … life … dance, Biarrtiz, food, cute animals, music, flowers, shoes, Chicago, handbags, travel … fresh air, the ocean and my camera
I care: too much – if we are able to do that
I am always: waking up happy
I worry: about my pension
I remember: Chicago
I sing: a lot, but I shouldn’t
I argue: with my mum every time I visit her
I write: faster than my brain works.
I lose: patience and keys far too often
I wish: that life could be more gentle to everybody and that I had that sea-view apartment in Biarritz
I listen: when I want to and to music 16 hours per day
I must: live where the ocean docks and laugh
I believe: in people that passionate helps those that needs help
I can usually be found: dreaming away and being absent
I am scared: for the day my mum will leave me, 91 this year
I need: more time and money to make my dreams come true
I forget: all the bad stuff … very quickly
I am happy: for that I’m still here, for everything I have and all that I are able to give
A big thank to you – Anyes– that made me stop and think.
Care to join me? Copy and paste if you’d like and let me know about it – I’d love to come read yours!
