I have "known" the message conveyed above for many years .. the epiphany, the gift I was just blessed with in Paris is knowledge of how to be in the moment. How to not let past negativity deform or influence present happiness. How to trust present action will lay a positive foundation for future happiness.
This bit of knowledge could have come at any time in any place, but for me it came while I was in my most cherished of all places .. Paris. Not Paris of the Eiffel Tower, nor Paris of the Seine, nor sidewalk cafe's, nor any other cliché's .. but the Paris which has forever swirled through my being via sounds and aromas and ethereal history like no other space I've ever experienced.
Dear Readers .. I wish you happiness now .. I wish you love and passion and wonder as we gently traverse this incredible experience we share ... this Life
you've kissed me
awakened my passion for life
No other can be you
cradled within my heart
protected by my overwhelming desire
I have loved you forever
since the first stone
of your first structure
Today my undying love
by your simple kiss
As long as my heart beats
we shall be connected
no matter where my body resides ...
from Kauai to Paris ... and all places between
