I tip-toed away and had a quiet little birthday this week.
Not a momentous one, nothing ending in a “0” or marking another decade.
Just one of those that glide by with the swiftness of a bird’s wing, a gentle whoosh,silent and steady.
I celebrated with old friends & my sweet husband. I’m not one to make a big deal of birthdays anyway, though I do find joy in sharing mine with many lovely, creative Virgo friends born so close together-an added blessing to be sure.
Of course birthdays are a good time to reflect, access,
consider what the past year has gifted us and what the future holds.
So there was some of that.
I also realised that it’s been 4 years since I began penning this blog.
I might be old, but I can’t give up my “Dude”
I still haven’t written a book, or accomplished a thousand other things on “The LIST”
But that’s OK. There’s still time.
and I kept up the blog!
I was also lucky enough to travel to some wonderful destinations this year, many of which I shared with you here.
Blogging has turned out to be, amongst other things, the most wonderful form of memory bank.
And remember my promise of a “Talitha Getty” pose when I finally reached Marrakech?

Stop making me laugh
In retrospect, I think we should have started that last night ‘shoot’ a little earlier in the evening.
Say, before the cocktail hour commenced.
Oh well, there’ll be other rooftops and gorgeous sunsets
You know me,
I’m always looking for the beautiful light…

And just in case you missed it last year (after all, not too much has changed!)
