Thank you for your birthday greetings yesterday

23rd of May 2020

Good morning my friends

I want to begin this morning by saying THANK YOU for the wonderful birthday wishes you sent me yesterday.

In isolation and having a great birthday is complicated but you all made it something I will remember forever.

The love and caring from you all made my day.

Now a new beginning starts and your thoughts will follow me.

Thank you all from my heart.

Now a new chapter starts.

What does it have in store for me?

Will my life be different this year or what?

Having friends all around the world is amazing.  I am lucky be be embraced by you all when needed and I thank you.

I got one message yesterday that described the situation perfectly. On these days of social distance the hugs are the words!  So true and the picture shows a couple hugging, one is human and the other one is words, shaped like a person.

I tried to reply to all the messages I got and I think I managed well. Sitting there and thinking about the friend I was replying to made me feel embraced with love.

The moment is now! I’m trying to figure it out!

The excitement is I have no idea about to morrow and I even don´t know about the next hour! What will I be doing the next hour is the future, the only thing I know that now I am writing this to you and listening to music.

Have a wonderful day wherever you are my friend!

I am Icelandic but live in Portugal. When I was young I had a dream. I wanted to travel around the world. I wanted to experience different cultures. My dream came true and I went to London. When going through the Chinese display in the British Museum I began to cry. I cried and experienced this longing and sadness. At that moment I knew I had to go to China. Arriving there for the first time I felt finally at home, a feeling I never had in Iceland. In Iceland I was an outsider. My mother passed away and I decided to move. My destination was China. I lived there for a while but had to sell my house and move because permanent residence was not granted to me. I moved to Portugal and that was 6 and a half years ago. In China I taught English and dance. In Portugal I am a retired resident. Now I am 72 years old. I love to write and want to share with you some of my experience in those 2 countries and also just my simple thoughts. Portugal is my final destination on this earth. Even though I have many years behind me, my mind is clear. I enjoy the life and make the most of every day. I love to sing, to study and most of all I love to be alive. I hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts that I share with you.
