So I spent a little more time contemplating. A flood of other memories poured in...standing at the foot of Multnomah Falls , the night market in Bangkok, an evening on the beach at Xpu Ha Palace, my sister's incredible outdoor wedding under the tall trees of Oregon, and Ireland of course...ok, these were all things I looked forward to which really blew me away once the day arrived.
This little piece of art is a reminder to allow for the possibility that the things we look forward to might just be even better than expected. Like my next birthday. Not a milestone, but maybe magical anyway. I wonder if Inigo Montoya will be there?
