Happy birthday Paulo

Happy Birthday Paulo
I took the picture of the Laaf in my brothers garden. In the efteling, a themepark in Holland there is a whole city with a school and a bakery etc full of these Laafs. Years ago you were able to adopt a laaf. My brother has now two laafs in his garden. Aren't they gorgeous.
You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle. Paulo Coelho Today I have a spare moment to say Happy birthday to Paulo Coelho. Yep we were born on the same day. I am from a different year though We are going out for lunch today and the sun is shining. It is spring here in a weeks time and there is already blossom everywhere. What a beautiful time of the year. Aroha Marja
