The envelope please...

El hombre de Barcelona gave me an envelope when I was in NYC, I was told to wait until I was on the plane to open it. I waited until I was over the Atlantic because with all the excitement it wasn't the first thing on my mind. Within the envelope made of handmade paper, were two sheets of handmade paper; one very rough and the other with leaves embedded in it. The third piece of paper is a picture of a rainbow, a tree and a road seemingly to no leading to no where (or maybe somewhere). On that paper included the following text....

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more the once and it's harder each time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you have never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.
Dont be afraid that your life will end,
be afraid it will never begin.

Send this to all of your friends in the next 5 minutes and a miracle will happen.

I send it to all of you... but in a little longer than a minute.. but miracles are already happening.

PS... the interview was interesting, nice guy, seemingly nice business, we will talk again.

so that was what was in the envelope...and it was very wise...I was wondering when you would tell us.

Yes, life is amazing, both the good and the bad.

Rejoice and embrace it all, and learn. Miss you! xxp
