Blog Hop - I am grateful for ...

Daphne Steinberg is the host for this week's prompt for The Thursday Writer's Post blog hop.

I came across this poem that sums up what I am grateful for very nicely 

For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am also grateful for my wonderful family - for the love and support they give me.

Warm Regards

Blog Hop - Christmas Blessings

Corinne (Everyday Gyaan) is the host of this week's prompt for the The Writer's Post blog hop.

What does Christmas mean to me?

In a nutshell, it is the time when I am thankful for the blessings I have received and a time when I can pass on those blessings to others. 

The giving of gifts is my way of expressing my thanks to my near and dear ones. The ability to give and the joy on their faces are both His blessings for which I am immensely thankful.

Each year my Christmas is spent with my family at home and each year we invite a friend over - someone who has no one to spend Christmas with - a way of sharing our joy with others.

Each year I buy a Christmas ornament for our tree - one each for my children - this is my Christmas tradition. It reminds me of each wonderful year I have spent with them.

And each year there are 2 ornaments that must be hung on the tree - my children's Christmas tradition. 

This year's ornaments:

And these that must be on the tree:

Have a Blessed Christmas. Peace, Joy and Love to all of you.

Warm Regards

Blogfest - Destiny

I have the privilege of hosting this week's prompt "Destiny" for The Writer's Post blog hop

Destiny is a topic that fascinates me. 

But is destiny real or is it just a case of mind over matter?

There are moments in my life when I've done things that I never thought I was capable of doing and then there are times when I've failed to do something relatively simple.

Even when I felt some trepidation or where the task seemed impossible, my mind willed me forward to achieve. Mind over matter prevailed.

But if mind does prevail over matter, then how does one explain those events where seemingly simple things just don't seem to fly, plans fall apart, nothing fits together. The mind just cannot find a way to succeed.

Is destiny the quiet ally or saboteur?

I believe that when it is meant to be, destiny the ally drives the circumstances for the mind to prevail over matter and when it's not meant to be, destiny the saboteur steers you away from success.

So is destiny carved in stone or can we change our destiny - or in other words do we have free will?

I believe that in the journey of our life we have a major destiny and a multitude of  minor ones that lead us to our major destiny.

Our major and minor destinies are pre-determined and will eventually be reached but there are many pathways to each destiny point.

The choices we make during the journey will determine the road we take to those points. Or in other words, we have free will to choose the path to that destiny point.

Our gut feel or intuition signals unease if we are veering off the path and will plant the deep desire to turn towards our pre-determined destination. Often we will heed this very reliable indicator and change paths ourselves.

But the Universe also lends us a helping hand and gently points us back in the direction of our destiny when we veer off the path significantly.

Free will was given to us so we could learn, experience and grow.  If everything was pre-determined, I don't think there would be any purpose in life. The choices we make and the journey itself  makes our life interesting, exciting, worthwhile and fulfilling.

We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny. But what we put into it is ours. 
~ Dag Hammarskjold

This is a combination of some posts I had written a long time ago. This blog hop gives me the opportunity to present them again. Is this destiny?

Please join in this blog hop and share your thoughts on Destiny or take the prompt and use it any way you want. I look forward to reading your posts.

Hope you have an interesting day and I also hope that today Destiny is your ally.

Warm Regards

Blog Hop - Invisible People

Invisible People

Jo Heroux - My Wandering Mind is this week's host for The Writer's Post blog hop.

I just had a scene play continuously in my head and when you get that, you have to go with it so here it is ...

I'm walking down Lambton Quay, the main street in Wellington, with people milling all around me at lunchtime and yet I am oblivious to them. If someone smiled at me or waved at me, I would never know.  I am so conscious of the shops, the street signs, the buses and cars, but people - they just seem to disappear from view. Invisible people!

And that scene suddenly reminded me of this song ... The Girl from Ipanema by Frank Sinatra

And then I thought about all the people out there who are perhaps trying to catch my eye.  So from now on I will try to look at all the lovely people and hopefully when they smile, I will catch that and smile back!

Have a happy day.

Blog Hop #55 - Half Empty or Half Full

Angela Tjong of Journey of Life is the host for this week for The Writer's Post blog hop

Do you see the glass half empty or half full?

I had to think about this for a while as my first reaction to this was "Of course I see it as half full" after all we need to keep a positive view of life.

But in thinking about this some more, I concluded, for myself, that to maintain a continuous positive outlook on life would not only be impossible but it would make me quite weary as well.

I believe that all things in life must balance and hence sometimes it is necessary to see the glass as half empty.

At work as a project manager I need to view my project in the half empty mode. This helps me plan for worst case scenarios, anticipate issues that could derail my project and take necessary steps to give my project the best chance of success. Taking a half full view would not be advantageous.

Sometime we face circumstances in our life where taking a half full view is simply not possible. There is nothing on earth that will make me view the last hours of my father's life with a half full view. His death for me is a hard loss to bear. I miss him everyday. I have an acceptance of his death but for me there is no positive outcome from his passing. For that the glass will always be half empty for me as he has left a void in my life that is hard to fill.

Living by and large with a positive outlook on life of course makes life infinitely easier to journey through.
But in all honesty, I really don't analyse - when it's necessary to take the half empty view I do that and then move on.

Wishing you all a peaceful life

Old post resurrection - Who do you need to forgive?

Thanks Sandra Tyler for giving us an opportunity to resurrect an old post.

This post was part of my Question of the Day series.

So who do I need to forgive?

I thought about this a lot as there are so many instances where people have seemingly committed injustices (small or big) towards me (or so I think) or where an action towards someone else has affected me.

But reality is that what I deem to be an injustice, the other may deem to be a necessity.

So how then does forgiveness work?

I have to take a spiritual perspective on this.

Mother Teresa summed it up well; "In the end it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway".

If we take the wisdom from Mother Teresa then the only person I need to forgive is myself.

This however raises several questions ....

Does this mean that by default I also take responsibility for the actions of others? That seems completely unfair and illogical.

Or does this mean that I only forgive myself for my actions and take no responsibility for others? That unfortunately leaves me with the inability to move on as I am now stuck with an action I cannot forgive.

In the end, my only recourse to forgiving myself for my own misdeeds and for the misdeeds of others was to understand that forgiving does not mean that I overlook or dismiss the action (whether it be mine or someone else's).

To forgive myself for an act I have committed also means that I take responsibility to not repeat that act again.

To forgive myself for an act someone else has committed towards me or for one that was committed towards another but affected me in some way, does not mean I take responsibility for the act, only the responsibility that it affected me in some way. In other words, I forgive myself for being affected. And having forgiven myself, I now have the ability to detach from that incident.

In both instances (my acts and acts of others where I am affected directly or indirectly), I take responsibility to understand that there may be a lesson in it for me and learn the lesson when I identify it. I also take responsibility to understand the reason for the action. I may not agree with the reason, but having understood the reason, I can then let it go.

Have a peaceful day

Warm Regards

Blog Hop #54 - Picture Prompt

This week's picture prompt is hosted by Jenn at Wine-n-Chat for The Writer's Post blog hop

I guess as this is a photo prompt, I can interpret this any way I want. 

And the first thing that came to mind was ...

"If music be the food of love, play on" by William Shakespeare in his book "The Twelfth Night". These words are ingrained in my brain - we had to study this book in school.

And from that the word "quotes" kept flashing in my mind so here they are ....

Keys to life 
Life is like a piano, what you get out of it depends on how you play it.  ~ Tom Lehrer

              That is so true. Life is what we make it. The choices we make are the paths we carve.
              On a personal note with the piano ...
              I tried to learn it when I was about 6 but never took to it - I played it really badly.                       
              Reading notes was like trying to decipher Latin and Greek blindfolded. Besides which I
              wanted to play all the nifty pop songs my brother played on his guitar, not the classical 
              stuff! But I regret giving it up and wish I had persevered. Trying to learn the keyboard
              now on my own, but I think I might have to join a class.

Sometimes we drop the keys ...
It still brings me up short to walk by somebody who appears to be talking to themselves 
~ Rob Newhart          

              I can so relate to this. 
              Sometimes I hear a hello right behind me or next to me and then I feel pretty
              foolish for saying hello back. At least if they had the phone in their hands you'd know
              they were conversing with someone.

A different key is needed each day. Today I thought of this one from an incident at work.
Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart ~ Anthony J. D'Angelo

               This is something I have learned first hand particularly in difficult situations. 
               A smile definitely diffuses tension. And conversely prevents tension too.

Somebody said once or wrote once: We are all of us children in a vast kindergarten trying to spell God's name with the wrong alphabet blocks! ~ Tennessee Williams, Suddenly Last Summer

                But eventually I hope someone will hand us the right blocks!
                Or in the context of this post ... the right keys.

Sending you all a virtual smile. Enjoy life.

Warm Regards

Blogfest - Favourite Halloween Memory

Kathy Combs is the host for this prompt for Blogfest 2012

Halloween is not celebrated widely in New Zealand and never heard of it when I was back in India. 

But some years ago the mall close to where I live (in NZ) hosted a Halloween party for kids - the idea was to keep kids supervised in a safe environment, off the streets and out of the cold and wet (the weather here is so unpredictable).

This was my son's first Halloween. He dressed up as Batman and his "loot catcher" was an ordinary plastic bag with a picture of a pumpkin that my daughter pasted on.

He was so cute. As we walked from shop to shop he whispered trick or treat - so quietly you could barely hear him. The sales people in the shops just loved him. He came home with a lot of loot.

Unfortunately that was the only year the mall did a Halloween party. So that was really the only one we ever participated in.

Blogfest - Creeping Obesity

Stuart is the host of this prompt for Blogfest 2012

I was a chubby kid, a chubby teenager, and now I am a chubby adult. The bmi indicator says I'm obese. - utter rubbish! How can a uk size 14 (us size 12) be obese?

There have been times in my life when I've looked at my weight as a problem but now over the years I have learned to live with it.

I exercise to keep fit, I eat healthy and within limits, I get a good night's sleep, I don't smoke nor do I drink alcohol, and I meditate to find the peace within. 

There was a time during my late teens and early twenties when I lost a lot of weight - and standing on the scale I was perfect for my height. I was skin and bone, I looked dreadful and malnutritioned, I looked half dead.  But my height-weight-bmi was perfect.

I got out of that madness as fast as I could - chubby looked and felt good. 

So my chubbiness no longer bothers me. 

Being healthy and fit is my aim - having the perfect height-weight-bmi score is not.  

Enjoy life.  Wishing you all good health and happiness.

Warm Regards

Blogfest - Monster Mash

Daphne Steinberg is the host of this prompt for Blogfest 2012

At first I really wasn't sure of how to tackle this prompt or what it really meant.  And I think everyone came up with a different take on it. So in typical Libra fashion I came up with different interpretations, pondered, procrastinated, argued about each in my head and then decided to take the literal view of "Monster" - foods that are for me complete monsters. 

And so here it is my take on the prompt.

For food to be delicious one has to engage all the senses - the aroma, the look, the taste, and the feel of it - they all have to mesh together beautifully like a symphony.

So on that basis I thought of the foods that totally put me off - I simply cannot eat these.

Here they are:

Fish dishes with eyes staring and open mouths - this puts me off completely. Lobster and crab dishes - they are just too creepy to eat. You can probably tell I'm not a seafood person.

When I was at school, we had the facility of hot lunches catered by the Bombay Gymkhana. The rice and pickle day was the worst day of the week for me. Right in the middle of my rice, they would put a blob of the most awful looking and tasting sweet pickle - put me off sweet pickle for the rest of my life.

Durian and Jackfruit - there is something extremely peculiar about the taste and smell of these. Definitely an acquired taste - one I haven't acquired yet. A story about the durian. Many years ago when I was little we were visiting my grandparents in Singapore and my brother and I got these coupons for free ice creams. How awesome ... NOT. The two of us gleefully walked to the ice cream stand to find that the only flavour we could get for free was durian! Talk about disappointment - this was it, and durian ice cream - just cruel.

Happy eating

Blogfest - Vacation Happiness or Headache?

 Toni Lynn Ferro-Cloutier is the host of this prompt for Blogfest 2012

I love travelling and have been blessed to visit so many beautiful places in the world. I have travelled across the US, UK, Europe, a lot of Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

For me travel vacations are definitely happiness with a capital H. But living down under in New Zealand means that other than getting to Australia and some Pacific Islands, I have to travel long distances and that is definitely a headache. But always worth it in the end.

Over the years my idea of vacations has changed. Previously it was about the place, the thrill of seeing something new. Now it's all about the people. I vacation to visit my near and dear ones.

My favourite vacations now are in my beloved hometown Mumbai. I absolutely love it there. Amid the chaos, confusion, noise, pollution, dirt, smell ... I find my soul and it rejoices.

Here are some pics of my beloved Mumbai taken on my various visits there.

 Taj Mahal Hotel and Gateway of India
 Air India Building and Oberoi Hotel (don't know what it's called now, I know it as the Oberoi)

 Mantralaya - Administrative headquarters of the state of Maharashtra

 Marine Drive

Palm trees at the Otters Club

 Rajabai Tower

Happy Vacations whenever and wherever you go.

Blogfest - The Best Day In My Life

Jo Heroux is the host of this prompt for Blogfest 2012

The best day in my life
The day there is no strife

When there is a moment of love
And Blessings flow from above

When laughter rings true
And I start on adventures new

When joy fills my heart
When I meet those who are currently apart

When there is peace all around
When all that is lost is found

When I have all that I wish for
When I need no more

When I connect with Spirit in bliss
When I know and feel that all and I are His

May each day be the best day in your life.

Blogfest - Dear Past Me / Future Me

I am so behind in my writing but will catch up slowly as the thoughts unfold.

Jessie Williams is the host of this prompt for Blogfest 2012

Dear Past Me

Everything I am today is the sum total of all the experiences, thoughts and actions that you have taken.

Some of these have been forced upon you, some you have created and initiated yourself.

Some experiences have been awesome, some not so good. But as you know they were necessary.

Some difficulties were actually blessings in disguise and some moments that haven't made any sense were still needed as they are links to the future.

I am a happy person today. I look back at you and thank you for making me what I am today.

Dear Future Me

Enjoy the great moments to come.

Know that every problem has a solution.

Understand that every past experience has a lesson that you can use in the future.

Enjoy the journey of life - in the end it all balances out.

Have the most awesome day.

Warm Regards

Blogfest - Dedication

I have the privilege of hosting the Blogfest 2012 prompt for October 18 which also happens to be my birthday.

I chose the prompt "Dedication" as I wanted to offer or dedicate something to love.

Love is the emotion that takes us closer to God. By loving someone, we find the way to Him.

Somewhere in this Universe, is the other half of my soul. If I am lucky, I will have the good fortune to meet him in this life.

Here's a poem I wrote some years ago that I dedicate to the love of my life, the one who completes my soul, the one I connect to unconsciously and feel the bliss.

I hope you enjoy it.

You are the journey of my life
You are the windows of my soul

You are the end and start
You are the beat of and smile in my heart

You are the breath that I take
You are the ocean, sea, and lake

You are the earth and sky
You are the wings on which I fly

You are the stars, the moon, and the sun
You are the essence of peace, ecstasy and passion

You are the lyrics of a song
You are the melody that plays along

You are the rhythm and the dance
You are love sublime and tender romance.

Join in and write your own dedication and please link back to this post. Also link up via the Blogfest page on facebook.

Wishing you all love and peace.

Warm Regards

Blogfest - Shadows

Leigh Isles is the host of the prompt "Shadows" for Blogfest 2012

This was a difficult prompt - nothing came to mind, but a song kept nagging.

Perhaps it's the blissful mood I have been in for the last few days. Songs are so soothing for the soul.

And as I haven't done a music post for a while, this was the perfect prompt for one.

Here is "The Shadow Of Your Smile" by Engelbert Humperdink. A beautiful, calming song with a haunting melody.

Even though I hear the sadness in it, I also hear eternal love.  And as I am the eternal romantic, the song definitely soothes my soul. It also strikes a chord with me and takes me back in time.

Not sure if my post fits what Leigh intended the prompt to be, but when something tugs at your heart, then that's the path one must follow. It was definitely a song this time!

Wishing you all love and joy

Warm Regards

Blogfest - The Boy

Daphne Palmer Romero is the host of this prompt for Blogfest 2012

The prompt is to write about this picture:

The boy gazes far
His destiny expansive
Like the vast ocean

His feet planted firm
Yet ready to take that step
When destiny calls

He hopes destiny
Is calm, gentle like the sea
Yet solid like earth.

Blogfest - If I ruled the world

Jo Heroux is the host of this prompt "If I ruled the world" for Blogfest

This is not an easy topic to write about as a lot of responsibility and care goes into being the ruler of the world. But it is a very thought provoking prompt.

I'm going to base my thoughts that revolve around responsibility and care, my spiritual beliefs and my values in life.

If I ruled the world ...

I would provide the ability for all who exist to live a harmonious and decent life. 

I don't think I would have the right to take away an individual's right to live a certain way but I think it would be my duty to ensure that I provided the ability for all to live well, should they want it.

I'm almost anticipating that most who read this would be saying, why wouldn't they. But who knows what each individual soul is here to experience. Spiritual studies infer that lives lived in hardship usually provide greater progress at the soul level.

I would promote the brother(sister)hood of mankind 

I truly believe that all of creation is inter-connected. All the souls who have arrived on earth are here for a greater purpose than just our individual lives, God's great plan, a plan that we cannot comprehend in the context of the cosmos.

I truly believe that peace is the way and that can be achieved only when we learn to live together, accepting each others differences and thoughts, when we can understand each others pain and show compassion for the less fortunate, and when we truly learn to appreciate the splendour of all God's creations.

So I would try to bring about an understanding of that.

I would provide justice for all - the law of Truth shall prevail

While I truly believe peace is the way and that the act of war cannot bring about peace, my spiritual  quest has led me eventually back to my roots in India to the great epic legends of India.

The Ramayana and the Mahabharata upon which the foundations of the Hindu religion lie, depict great wars (to the scale of the predicted Armageddon) that have been commanded and led by Lord Vishnu (who the Hindu's believe is the preserver and sustainer of life) in His human incarnations (Lord Ram and Lord Krishna), to bring about peace and goodwill to humanity and to remove evil.

Everything in the world and even the cosmos is balanced - the ebb and flow of tides, day and night, water and fire, earth and air, male and female, good and evil, harmony and destruction, powerful and powerless, life and death, all nicely summed up in the yin and yang.

And as all things balance in life, when the cosmos becomes imbalanced, and where sense and sensibility cannot rectify that imbalance then to provide justice for the greater good, eradication of evil enough to bring back the balance of nature becomes a necessity.

The Hindu scriptures predict that Lord Vishnu will come again in human form to restore peace and harmony to the world again.  This avatar of the Lord will however be merciless in eradicating evil and extremely benevolent to those who hold the essence of truth and goodness. He will end the age of destruction and begin the age of Truth.

I think it would my duty as the ruler of the world to uphold the truth and to punish evil thus bringing about justice for all.

Whether we look at eradication via wars or via penalties (like sanctions) in the end the act is the same. Innocent lives suffer in either circumstance. Our inter-connectedness also therefore means that those who eradicate also suffer. I have no answer on how to prevent that except to pray to the Lord to provide his shelter and grace to the innocent and to forgive the necessary act which leads to the destruction of life that He has created.

Peace and Blessings to all.

Warm Regards

Blogfest - Living my dream

The prompt "Are you living your dream?" is hosted by Corinne from Everyday Gyaan

When I was very little, I had this belief that each of us had an angel looking after us. No one actually ever told me this, it's  just something that I just knew - don't  know how! And I believed that our life was the angel's dream. Everything the angel dreamt would be occurring in our lives. And if we have that close a connection with the angel, then from that perspective I'm definitely living a dream.

Then many years later when I started seeking some spiritual answers, my belief changed to one where I now believe that we are born to live this life.  We are born to experience many things that are growth and realisation for our soul. We do make choices but ultimately we are led to our pre-determined destiny. This is the life we have agreed to live. And hence on that basis, again I believe that I am living my dream.

This place is a dream. Only a sleeper considers it real. Then death comes like dawn, and you wake up laughing at what you thought was your grief.

~ Rumi

Are you living your dream? Please share your thoughts.

Wish you all dreams come true.

Warm Regards

Blog Tag .. You're It - Sometimes I Wish

This post has been published as part of Blog Tag - You're It
28 awesome bloggers from all over the world are participating in this and presenting their wishes under the banner "Sometimes I Wish..."

But before I get onto that, thanks Susan for introducing me and my blog via your post Meanderings and Reflections - Sometimes I Wish. That was a lovely introduction.

And now the baton has been passed to me or was it a quiet tap on my shoulder? In any case it's my turn to dream.

I'm also participating in Blogfest 2012 via The Writer's post and my post lines up really nicely with the prompt of "Make a Wish - what talent would you wish for". 
This prompt is hosted by Shannon at

So here they are, some of the wishes of my heart, a little different from most of the posts I've read so far (obviously my head's in a different world).

Sometimes I wish ...

I had the art of teleporting. I moved to New Zealand 24 years ago and love my new adopted country but I miss my hometown (Mumbai, India), a place etched into my heart and one I love so dearly. I miss my family, relatives and friends. I miss the sights and sounds of Mumbai. I miss the food, I miss the excitement there during festivals, family occasions, friend get-togethers etc and particularly at times like that I wish I could be there. Teleporting would be just perfect. That's a talent I wish for not just sometimes, but a lot of times.

Sometimes I wish ...

I could go back in time to a day when young hearts were beating. A moment when puppy love was sweet and shy. My first senior school dance with the cutest guy in the whole world. I wish I could relive that moment again in reality instead of in my head and I wish that someday we will meet again. Most times I try to live in the moment - not the past - not the future, but the beautiful memories of the past help me through sad times and keep me sane.

Sometimes I wish ...

I could spend a day with my dad again. To see his smiling face, laugh with him (my dad had a great sense of humour), watch him do his sudoku puzzles, share a cup of tea with him (we often sat together and shared a cuppa), watch a game of cricket together (my dad was a cricketer so cricket was not just a game but a way of life for us and cricket without him is no fun at all) and to just know that he is at peace and happy wherever he is. I

Sometimes I wish ...

I have the privilege of watching the actual Krishna Ras Leela. The Ras is such a beautiful dance. I always think of it as the dance of love. Done well, it is quite seductive. So watching Lord Krishna dance with his beloved Radha would be surreal.

The Ramayana is one of the great epics of India and the reign of Lord Ram (known as Ram Rajya) was one of great harmony, peace, respect, truth, justice, joy, splendour, love and dharma (right action and duty). Sometimes I wish I could be back there and be part of the great epic. It would be awesome to be in the presence of Divinity.  Sometimes I wish Ram Rajya would once again descend on earth.

When I was young my grandmother would tell me stories of Lord Ram and Lord Krishna and ever since I could comprehend language these have been my favourite stories and Lord Ram my favourite epic hero. I often wonder how it must've been like to walk with the Gods here on earth.

Sometimes I wish ...

I could take a peek into the era of the legendary or mythical Atlantis. So many questions go round in my head. Was it real? What was it like? What happened? Was Lord Krishna's Dwarka the famed Atlantis? It is believed that when Lord Krishna left the earth, the current age of Kaliyug (age of destruction) descended on earth, the oceans rose and submerged His kingdom of Dwarka. If you haven't guessed by now, Anthropology and ancient civilisations are some of my pet interests.

Sometimes I wish ...

That life would just be a little easier. Life has not been easy for me and the last 5 years have been extremely hard. There's been one life changing event after another. Those curved balls just come at me fast and furious and relentlessly. I've faced them all with courage and strength and with faith that there is some Divine reason for them. And I've smiled through adversity even though my heart was breaking and the fear and anxiety was gripping it. I'm so good at hitting them now. But I am also quite weary and sometimes I wish God would just send me nice slow easy-to-hit ones. On the other hand compared to millions around the world, my life would be considered pretty easy so I also feel very blessed.

Sometimes I wish ...

I could get a sneak preview of my soulmate. I know all things happen in Divine timing so when it's meant to happen he will appear in my life but the suspense is killing me so a sneak preview would be so nice. And sometimes I wish he would just hurry up and sometimes I'm glad he's taking his time. That reminded me of the Mock Turtle's song in Alice in Wonderland: "will you won't you, will you won't you, won't you join the dance". And as I'm Libra, being contradictory is as normal as the sunrise.

Passing the baton

And now it's my turn to pass the baton onto Blogwati G, an interesting and a very versatile writer. She is, among many things, philosophical, humourous, poetic and great with the camera. Check out and enjoy her blog Blogwati G and I look forward to her post on "Sometimes I Wish ..."

Wishing you all a "wish come true" day.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfilment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.

~ from Walt Disney's Pinocchio
