“Don’t ask what will happen tomorrow. Whatever the sum of days given to you, think of it as a treasure, and when you are young, never say no to dancing and sweet desire”
Horace, Odes I.9
I hope to keep this in mind, and always consider myself young at heart, even as another year passes.
My best wishes to everyone for 2011, I hope it brings each of you happiness and serenity. I will spend New Year’s Eve at Ain Guba (Cleopatra Spring) as I did last year. It has been a big year for me, sad in many ways but happy in others.
The move to Egypt, with all the packing and getting rid of things and decisions about what I need in my life, made me realise more than ever that it is not our possessions but the people in our lives that matter.
