Going for Gold – The Ecstasy of Alchemy

I recently celebrated my 40th birthday. The run up to 40 was like a ticking time bomb that I pretty much wanted to avoid . Hence the timebomb invitation…. One  month before my birthday I shelved all plans for a small low key soiree and  decided to bite the bullet (the golden bullet) go all out and celebrate as if I was doing a birthday party for a dream client  (who just happened to be me). It’s incredible how things fall magically into place when you celebrate life, friendship and golden opportunities. I had the weekend of my dreams with friends, poetry, singing, dancing & much laughter. I think the ferret racing was one of my life’s funniest moments. There was even a lunar eclipse. Perfect Golden Moment. ♥♥♥♥
