Monica in Amsterdam

Last week after all this time I had Monica (my little princess) visit me from Palermo. Usually, I travel to see her so it was really nice to show her my world even if briefly.

Well, the first thing she wanted was for me to hire a bike, oh yes & it had to be Pink! So off we went just by Centraal station MAC bike and it was really easy/cheap so if I have other visitors I now know the routine.

She loved it immediately it was great as Amsterdam has the separate bike paths which makes it safe & fun.

Then we did the Zoo (Artists) - before that I didn't even know it had one - Of course Madam had a set agenda of the animals we had to see - Tigers, Elephants oh yes & the Bear (which she likes most as it's just like Daddy!).

Monica looking very unsure of the Flamingo's!

On the last day we did the Nemo it's a science museum for kids and it was fantastic - we both really enjoyed it....pulling knobs and buttons, doing experiments, etc.

Yeah we had a really cool time!!!

And yeah I had a big, fat, huge, enormous smile on my face;-)

Of course Moni didn't come alone & brought Mummy with her so my most humble thanks to Giules.

Thinking of 2010

I sat under wintery northern skies no sun, the clouds were various colours of grey,
pondering on an unknown world full of different cultures, traditions & beliefs which if I wanted to see it for a while I had to leave behind everything familiar & comforting.

Saw skies so clearly blue gazed, sister moon & amillion brother stars, felt the warmth of the mighty Aten Father sun.
Wonderful enchanting sights and memories that fill me with laughter passed by things old & ancient, of beauty and mystical there was magic and it held something for me.

A faint murmur whispered “The path to personal transformation usually isn’t the simplest one, to truly step along the road of transformation, See everything on that journey that happens to you along the way as a clue & accept all the people that you meet along the journey as a teacher”.

I bow before the majestic splendour that is the Universe, sister moon rises, father sun sets.
Life is full of amillion adventures not yet begun.
