On more personal note

So yes, I have been in love before. but I have never experienced it with such magnitude before. Never. It could be a long story to tell but seems like it ends here. The love of my life has left me and I feel I am so sad, emotionaly drained and empty... Like never before.
But as I was driving through Nairobi with beautiful sun outside, Nick Cave's Let love in played in the car, a Montechristo cigar in my hand... And I realized life is beautiful. Why? Exactly because I am sad and hurt. Because it is possible for me to experience such things. The very fact that they can appear...
And then I remembered what the Teachers always used to say: these just ripples on the surface, and ocean runs deep below.

"And a thought - perhaps I am not getting older but also wiser? "

I cannot believe it you say so - you are really getting older man, not wiser
don't even pretend to understand it :-)

but... we are all getting older (if it helps you)
