There are eleven days to go until I turn 65. It feels like I have been traveling for some time to reach this point in the journey. Sixty four years to be exact!
And, much has changed since I was a child:
Growing up in Africa there are so many tales to tell. All I know is when I met Patrick from Zimbabwe at the World Forum on Early Care and Education last week, I felt as close to my childhood as ever. He wrote a greeting in the book I created in the Lakeshore room:
From the heart of Zimbabwe, a country and a place which is home to you in many ways ...
In Israel I became a mother and a teacher.
And, in America I became an adult.
A colleague, from a different country, almost the same age as me, also wrote in my World Forum memory book last week:
Dear Friend! What joy!! Abundance of spirit! Strength of heart! Love L
And I thought to myself, "Yes. This is exactly how I want to greet age 65 ... the day I officially become a Senior - with joy, abundance of spirit, and strength of heart."
