From Lori on Her 44th Birthday

It's been over 8 months since I've written and I thought my birthday was a great day to start again.  Every birthday tends to be a time when I think about the changes I long to make.  This year especially so because some of these same wishes were here one year ago as well.  I had every intention to do this and that, but I didn't make them happen.  I let time slip through my fingers as if it was sand. 

One change I've had is that I now live at the beach in San Francisco.  When I was in desert, I really wanted to live at the beach.  I knew I wouldn't be able to have another studio any time soon, and I was yearning for peace.  I couldn't think of a more healing experience than living at the beach.  I have an ocean view.  I spend a lot of time at the beach taking pics of the gorgeous sunset and collecting seashells and sand dollars.  It's how I imagined it to be: healing and peaceful. 

Now, about those birthday wishes.  I've mentioned different wishes and dreams throughout these spinning teacups.  Some things change, some things stay the same.

Wishes come true...

I wished to be back in San Francisco and now I am.

I wished to live at the beach and now I do.

Unfulfilled dreams...

I wish for a Vespa.

I wish for a studio .
(when I feel it's time to leave the beach)  

I wish for a love to call my own (still).
