Spread 162- “It’s My Party And I’ll Cry If I Want To…” February 16, 2012

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

In some places in the world it’s my birthday today. I am 53 years old. No one is going to take it away from me. I am standing tall and proud when realizing my tremendous beautiful and complex evolution. I come from a place where pain reigns and am in a place where pain teaches. I am so much lighter than before in-spite of my heavy walk. I know that nothing in me is certain nor constant besides two things: the love in me and my visual language. I know how to celebrate me, not needing to throw a tantrum demanding to be celebrated. I am well off.

Happy birthday Orly, it’s interesting to see how your page evolved (I was there when this page was born in Mexico) and now it has changed; in every change we observe on a page there was a deeper process that already happened, I am so grateful once again for the walk you took me through via visual journaling, it was gentle and transformative and I find myself, back to myself. I love you Orly!

Happy Birthday beautiful, wonderful, wise Orly my friend. We celebrate you and all you mean to so many. You inspire us to do rich things, to feel deeply, to love deeply, to create boldly, to challenge ourselves and be stronger. We lift you up in order to make that heavy walk lighter as you have lifted us so many, many times gently and boldly. Here is to many, many, many more years of laughter, tears and walks together in beautiful, wild places. Writing this brings tears to my eyes as I am so happy to call you my dear, dear friend. Love always.

Happy Birthday Orly, you and I are the same age (I am a few months older if that makes you feel any better : )
…and pain, yes, I have learned much from it as well. Cheers to you and your visual language, beautiful as ever.

This is a beautiful spread. Happy Birthday to you. You’re not getting older, you’re getting better.

23. Nicole - February 16, 2012

You can cry if you want to, but may I suggest a nice flourless cake instead? No tissues needed, and it won’t clog-up your sinuses. I love these pages, and this reminded me to go work on mine…(talk about crying…). Have a great year!

On your birthday, I was in a part of the world (St Maarten) where I heard only the sound of the waves and the birds, and not the news of your birthday. But each day is an opportunity to wish you another wonderful year of searching and knowing — so Happy Birthday, dear Orly!
