Where do I begin?
The roses and the lavender greet me in the morning.
My friends and family call and write.
I am healthy.
I live on a hill in Italy.
My guests keep coming.
I have my own art studio.
I can walk, talk, create.
I have a home of my own.
I have a great love who loves me back.
I have a big kitchen and can prepare anything I want.
I have an extended blog world which gives me great pleasure.
I have hope. I have dreams.
And, today, it's my birthday, my 51st. My gifts? Read above.
I am the luckiest girl in the world.
