Maybe it was the bath… maybe the book, maybe the glass of wine….
On my last birthday some of my very dearest friends gave me a present that they knew I was going to enjoy: bath salt, a book, a secret box… you know what I mean, dudettes…. they knew a little secret.
This evening, while doing the perfect combination of bath, reading, smoking and a glass of wine, it hit me… it was like opening my eyes for the first time. And it feels so good, like I haven’t felt in a very long time.
You always know when a “goodbye” is the last and most meaningful one. The releasing one…
Billie Holiday – Pennies from heaven
“Oh every time it rains
It rains pennies from heaven
Don’t you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven
You’ll find your fortune
Fallin’ all over town
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down
Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers”
Just Billie and me and the stilness of heart, at last…
