Off he goes…

As I write this, Michael is waiting at the airport for his flight to Italy. Wow, can’t believe it. I’m hoping that he has one fantastic trip, and am looking forward to seeing him next Wednesday, and hearing all his travel tales.

He just phoned me from the airport. They are boarding in an hour’s time. He sounds pretty excited.

I was pondering the other day whether there is such a thing as a soul-mate. Personally, I agree that there is. One soul out there who perfectly matches your own. However, I do concede that with approximately four billion people on Earth, that there may be a few souls that match the criteria. But when I asked Michael if he believes in soulmates, he just looked at me and said, “Duh.” ‘Nuff said. Michael and I are soulmates, whether the concept exists or not.

A common argument against ‘soulmates’ is, “Well, that’s sure a coincidence that they were both born in the same (hick) town.” But really, with soulmates being such a huge idea, stars being aligned and all that, is it really such a leap of faith to assume that two souls destined for each other could be arranged to be born not too far apart? It’s a lovely concept, though, isn’t it?. One that I am more than willing to buy into, having found my own soulMate.

PS Being each other’s soulmates doesn’t mean you never fight. Oh boy, can you fight. But somehow, even the fights seem right, written in the stars, lol.

We went to Jo’ies on Monday, to fetch M’s Italian visa. The route there was harrowing, and we had a near death experience in the traffic. Phew! A car swerved out from behind a truck right in front of us. Luckily, M had his wits about him and managed to swerve just enough to miss him, but not enough to swerve into the car driving alongside us.

Anyway, apart from that, it was really beautiful. Summer has arrived faster this year than any other I can remember. Literally overnight. So all the plain looking shrubs/ trees on the side of the roads had just exploded in blossoms. I just found it so lovely, these plain almost stark trees, still winter bare, but with clumps of candyfloss like blooms stuck to their branches.

After the visa fetching stop, we went to my favourite restaurant, Kauia, where I had my usual: hummer wholewheat bun, smoothie, tot of wheatgrass juice, and Kauia’s to-die-for muffin. Michael took a photo of me ordering. He said afterwards it was a pic of the Maggie-bird in its natural habitat.image239.jpg

That’s me in the stripy top.

He likes taking photo’s of me when I’m not aware of it, and totally absorbed in something else. Then I end up looking like a dork, like here (I was reading something):

Actually can’t believe I just posted such an unflattering photo!

It was a nice day, though. We listened to our Johnny cash CD. I just love his song, “A boy named Sue”. A classic! We were driving down the M1 highway and just laughing our asses off. I love a song that tells a story. Then we had a moment with Ghost riders in the sky, which has some terrific guitar riffs. So haunting, and the song paints such clear images in the listener’s mind.

Also, how cool is Sean Kingston’s song, Beautiful Girl ?

And how heartbreaking is I know a love that will never grow old? Performed by Emmy Lou Harris for the movie Brokeback mountain, for which she garnered a Grammy award.

Good stuff, I tell you.

  1. Soul mate eh? It is tough to know … and you may never know the difference either. “Love the one you are with” seems to ring true.

  2. I always believed in soulmates when I was a teenager … but now I am not so sure. Maybe or maybe not.

    All the best for M on his trip to Italy … hope he has a blast. Don’t miss him too much cos he’ll be home sooner then you think. Sorry to hear about your “near death” experience.

    Have a great weekend!
