This and that

Ok, so.. where was I.. in terms of what's going on these days..
Right, well, a busy couple of weeks considering I had to deal with 1. my birthday (and I say deal because I had the usual suspects planning another surprise party which I finally managed to prevent.. but still celebrated ;-)) 2. work, as things have been drastically changing/evolving 3. planning my upcoming trip abroad 4. working on my new blog (that I will announce once it's ready)..

oh well let's just say that I didn't get bored :)

More to come, much more.. stay tuned

I've always said that as long as we have dreams to follow, we are healthy and alive.
It's never too late to pursue any dream of ours whatsoever regardless our age or any other obstacle that may arise. The sky's the limit and as a wise friend of mine once said, the only reason obstacles exist is because they are to be surpassed. And I strongly believe that the future is only what we make of it. Here's one of my favorite poems by none other than the world renowned Greek poet Constantine P. Cavafy

Body, Remember . . .

Body remember, not only how much you were loved,
not only the beds on which you lay,
but also those desires for you
that glowed plainly in the eyes,
and trembled in the voice - and some
chance obstacle made futile.
Now that all of them belong to the past,
it almost seems as if you had yielded
to those desires - how they glowed,
remember, in the eyes gazing at you;
how they trembled in the voice, for you, remember, body.

C.P. Cavafy

Friday the 12th

Everyone talks about the ominous Friday the 13th but has anyone spoken of Friday the 12th?
Call me superstitious if you’d like but here’s a recap of my day so far:

1. Spilled my morning coffee 5 minutes before I leave the house for work
2. Miss my bus
3. Wait for the next one only to realize that I don’t have my tickets with me (and nowhere around to buy any)
4. Get’s in a taxi with a new driver which was driving under the speed limits
5. Late for work
6. Three phone calls on hold while computer is locked for maintenance by the IT dpt.
7. Third phone call was about a marble plate that (with the help of the cleaning lady of the upper floor of my house) chipped off the balcony and fell right in the center of my parked car’s back window shattering it to pieces!
8. Trying to find a garage that’s is open after working hours so that I would have the time to go after work, or even tomorrow.. but NO, “Sir, we are really sorry but tomorrow is Saturday”.. what did I expect?
9. Fighting with the taxi driver upon my return drive home as he insists to take a longer path and trying to convince me that my proposed route is much longer. Result: stuck on traffic..
10. Back home and first raindrops start to threaten my now open hood car! (which I got to cover right on time before the first rainfall since last winter!!)

Luckily.. yes I did say “luckily”, somewhere among those 10 points, I got a rather nice surprise today, which more or less made up and erased anything negative..
Big thank you to that nice surprise for making me smile!
