I watched  as shadows appeared and dissapeared across the wall. As water reflected against the dark grey, spirit and soul moving as footsteps disturbed the water surface. As light refracted and broke into a thousand colours and spread it's wings outward.
I watched  as my child started a new year of school, confident and glad to be amongst his friends
I read  such lovely messages wishing me a happy birthday, that my day was filled with friends from all over the world.
I ate  exceedingly good Torte di Ricotta.
I was covered  in small kisses from my children, hugs, and sing song chants of happy birthday mummy we love you I love you so much when can we have the cake...
I had  a wonderful peaceful quiet birthday. I am now older. And while I feel it physically, I don't feel anywhere near my age mentally. For one day I put aside all the worries of the world.
And just enjoyed being me.
