My dear friend would have been 102 today

11 th of July 2020
Good morning
Góðan daginn

It is night here in Penela but a beautiful and fresh one
I woke up at 5 o’clock and looked out
Sometimes I watch the sky from my balcony and dream big
I dream about flying around the world and the clouds are my plains
Now it’s dark but the moon is big and I go to a special place which I love dearly. I travel there often.
Today is a special day. My dear friend who passed away decades ago would have been celebrating his day today.
This friend shaped in many ways my life. I was a teenager and he listened to me and showed me respect and fatherly love. I remember the last time we spoke like it was yesterday. It was decades ago but nothing had changed. The love and support and appreciation was like when I was a teen girl and sat in front of him and told my stories.
I think about him every day. I talk to him and he gives me advice and support. If feeling low I dream about him supporting me and telling me to get through and be strong.
I miss him and I look forward to see him one day in the future when I walk into the wonderland where he is now.
My dearest friend. Happy birthday to you and receive my love with hugs and kisses on this wonderful birthday of yours. Thank you for your love. Thank you for shaping my life. Thank you for never forgetting me and thank you for just being a wonderful part of my life.
My friends who read this morning greeting!
Today is a day I will celebrate my friends birthday.
I hope you all have a special friend which you remember every day.
With love and light I bid you good morning.

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.
