What a lazy day I’m having… I woke late morning, treated myself to coffee and toast in bed – and a long, fabulous catch up chat with my eldest daughter. So good to reconnect after a busy week. A chance to mull over the events and share funny stories.
This afternoon I’m meeting my youngest daughter at the local cinema to see Michael Jackson’s This Is It… we had tickets to for one of his shows in July – so finally having time together to see the film will be a special for us. Have you noticed how we can bumble along in life, putting things off until tomorrow, things we’d really like to do or have… and then when someones life comes to an end suddenly, it does come as a shock and put ones own life into perspective doesn’t it? We realise just how precious our time here is… What have you been putting off that you’d really like to do?
After the film I’m meeting my eldest daughter – we’re off to Windsor to an art gallery where Fabian Perez, the Argentinian, now LA based artist, is unveiling his stunning new collection of paintings. As the proud owner of 2 pieces of his art work, I’m always excited to meet the artist – nothing to do with the fact he’s drop dead gorgeous ;) My daughter who is an art/film student will love this experience, as well as sipping on champagne – and preventing me from making another purchase! Going to these events always adds sparkle to my life… to see someone who from ‘some where’ and ‘some how’ has achieved outstanding success – from living in Buenos Aires – becoming a painter… and who is now internationally recognised and who has been chosen as one of the official artists of the London 2012 Olympics! Fantastic… Mmm… his story focuses me on my goals and Henry Ford’s famous quote springs to mind ‘if you think you can do a thing, or think you can’t your right’ which is it to be?
After our champagne, we’re off for dinner and to admire Windsor Castle by night… it always looks spectacular at night – lit to perfection, it seems to tower (literally) over you as you walk along the winding road that stretches around its solid walls…
This is a perfect day – a day of fun with my girls, a day of treats and remembering live is meant to be FUN! I’m so aware that they will be flying the nest over the next few years, it’s great to have days like this with them. What fun things will you do today? What could you do? Who would you choose to share your time with? Who could you call today for a catch up?
Happy Saturday everyone! Ps… here’s a link to Fabian Perez’s web site www.fabianperez.com
