“Life is not a destination but a serious of events that shape our journey”
~ Etta D. Richards
March 28th, 1969 I opened my eyes and fell in love with the world.
March 28th, 1979 I discovered that there was life beyond the Horizon. The world was my Oyster, waiting to be devoured.
March 28th, 1989 I discovered that the world can be a cruel place, my life was no longer my own as two became one bound together by laws of man and God. Thus began the downward spiral as I was thrust into the world of the collective drones. Oh, how I hated the world!
March 28th 1999 I give life for the second time and she’s beautiful. I would teach her about the world, not the one she was born into, but the one that only exists in fairy tales. I don’t want her to grow up, she will always be my baby girl, companion to her older sister.
March 28th, 2004 I planned my escape. I broke the laws of God and Man. I regain my life, two now become one! I fleed without contempt, I give no demands, leaving only with the lives I brought into this world, and I fall in love with the world again.
April 5th, 2010 Love found me again, with every fibre of my being I resisted. But in the end my soul betrayed me, once again, one became two. This time not bound by any laws, but bound by respect, wisdom, and the understanding that love is precious, love is fragile. And though it’s sometimes callously shared…….It is painful. So we decided to live each day at a time because, in the midst of despair, there’s always humour………And we will laugh in the face of adversity and dance to the tunes of life.
To be continued………..
