0 days: Track Eleven: Dorothy's arrival
Where do we go from here? UP
11. Dorothy's arrival
The journey closes as a new one begins.
The most important lesson of all.
My life has opened in her smile.
The love of my life represents everything to me: Magic, love, life, existence, the universe.
Somewhere between starting to write and meeting her, the line between everything became blurred.
I mean the all encompassing EVERYTHING.
The big one.
She reminds me of who I am and why I am here. She reminds me of the man that I am and the man that I want to be. She reminds me of how weak I am and how strong.
In falling in love with her, I fell in love in love with life.
Writing "The Portrait Diaries" changed my life or maybe my life changed and "The Portrait Diaries" documented it.
The answer lies in fact that it is both.
Upon turning our attention to changing our life we do just that and we get what we ask for. We work with a masterful force and we carve our lives out before us one step at a time.
I will receive love. I will go to be a happy man who leads a full life. I smile back at the man that I once was and in turn to the small boy. I tell them "It is ok, I am here". They can see me waving from the future. I am dressed in white.
I smile at all of the memories that I have and all the people that I knew.
I have loved them all.
I am proud to walk into to my future knowing that I will never give up and I will always stand tall.
Nothing will beat me and I will do everything to be true to my real self in spite of the fear.
My real self is good and pure. I am the light that guides the way.
Richard you are and always will be okay. I love you.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It has been a pleasure
I present you
"The Portrait Diaries"
