I've lived in 8 countries and 9 cities. I used to be a SCUBA instructor in the Caribbean and French West Indies. I dream of a small house, tastefully appointed with fresh flowers in every room, with a big back yard full of flowers and a small loosely hanging wooden gate leading to a sandy path itself leading to a beach with miles and miles of white sand with the gently, warm, crystal blue waters of the ocean lapping the shores, and my dogs running in out of the water, and walking hand-in-hand with my soulmate.
Each to his/her own pace.
What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by

Symbolizing rebirth and new beginnings, the daffodil is virtually synonymous with spring. Though their botanic name is narcissus, daffodils are sometimes called jonquils, and in England, because of their long association with Lent, they’re known as the “Lent Lily.” Lore connecting the daffodil to not only a sign of winter’s end but a lucky emblem of future prosperity is found throughout the world. In Wales, it’s said if you spot the first daffodil of the season, your next 12 months will be filled with wealth, and Chinese legend has it that if a daffodil bulb is forced to bloom during the New Year, it will bring good luck. Happy birthday !
