To The Future, To Love, And To Paradise

24 Dec

I met up with a new but really good friend today. He was leaving town for good and even though he had a million things to do, he wanted us to meet up. We met up, walked around – which involved lots of meandering through throngs of tourists and avoiding been run over by cyclists who would knock down an old lady in a minute without remorse since they are really the ones “saving the world” and “creating green energy”. At the end of the evening, he hugged me and said he was proud of what I had managed to achieve in the past 18 months. I brushed it off but when I got home, I realised that I am constantly looking forward, constantly thinking about how to advance my goals that I never stop to celebrate the things I have managed to do. So today I opened a bottle of bubbly, a gift that I received at Christmas and drank it down alone, while listening to Seal, who happens to be one of my favourite artists and whose song supplies the title to this post. While I’m the first to list the disadvantages of drinking alone, today is a ME day. And I’m not going to be apologetic about it.

While it may be a normal/boring/crazy/terrible day for you, have a drink today for me, to the future.

    Oh God, are we cyclists that bad?

    Try telling cyclists they fart a lot. All that methane is a potent greenhouse gas. They should use buses.

      I’ve seen cyclists do some really bad things, including one calling an elderly woman the c-word as she tried to cross the road. But not all cyclists are bad 🙂

      Not sure if cyclists fart a lot more than the average population and I really think people should cycle more but leave the rage at home!

    Good for you, D.C! Everyone deserves a special treat every now and then! Cheers! It’s strange, but many of us fail to see the good difference that we make in the lives of those around us. Congratulations, my friend, for taking your time to celebrate YOU! 🙂

    Much love, a year’s worth of naked hugs and all my best for 2015 and beyond, buddy! 😉
