The Alchemist


i re-read my favorite book the other day, "the alchemist" by paolo cohelo. for those of you who haven't read it, it is a simple fable, translated from spanish, and will probably take you a day or two at most to finish it. it is a story about a shepherd boy who is in search of his destiny. you will become that boy as you read it, and will find that all of the characters will also become either friends or acquaintances that you have met so far in your own life. one of the most prevalent themes is that everything in the universe conspires to help us achieve our own destiny, but it is our responsibility to read the omens and act accordingly. it is so simple. the more i vigilantly keep my eyes open and look around, the more i'm convinced that this premise is true. i have fulfilled my dream of becoming a pilot, an artist, and a musician... now the most recent quest is to find love and happiness again- and i can feel the world reaching out in so many unexpected ways. if anything, 'the alchemist' has continued to and will continue to renew my spirit, and my confidence that things will work out if i just pay attention.

Things willl work out for you, babe. Don't be in a hurry . . . sit back and look around you. Time is a wonderful thing if used wisely. You will find love and happiness again, and so will I. Just when I'm about ready to give up, someone enters my life and changes it in some small way, including you. All of this helps me go through life with my head held high. Hang in there and keep a positive attitude.
