Today is October 13, 2018, Daphne’s 29th Birthday. I’m sending a Happy Birthday out to Daphne over the airwaves. Wherever you are, I hope you are well and enjoying your day.
This is my first post (ever). As I’m writing this, I have not sent Daphne a link to this yet and am still undecided and divided as to whether I will. In keeping in-line with the Framework discussed in the Preface, I am making an entry as it is the one year anniversary of something of significance between Daphne and I.
One year ago, in 2017, I strangely felt compelled to send Daphne a text and wish her a Happy Birthday. I hadn’t seen or communicated with Daphne in about two years. She had disappeared. I knew she probably wouldn’t get it, but I just wanted to get it out in space to honor her day and spread cosmic good vibes. I don’t know why I felt like I should send it, as I really didn’t think of her during the prior two years. But I did remember how she treated me the last time I saw her and how I vowed to never speak to her again. Time forgives I guess. I later found out that she changed her phone number, so no, she did not receive my well wishes. Little did I know that the universe was speaking to me and what was forthcoming.
In retrospect, I wish I had bought those sunglasses for her birthday all those years ago. Maybe I would have been the one she disappeared with, who captivated her, who excited her, who drew her in so tightly that she could not shake it. Maybe I would have been her first adult-like relationship where the concept/idea of such a relationship was (in my opinion) more powerful than the person she was with. Needless to say, I did not buy those sunglasses.
I wish our separation never happened and I had the chance to be with her today. She has come a long way in her life and it would have been nice to celebrate those achievements with her. In the midst of those 142 days, I had already started thinking what I would do for her today and had many ideas of what I would gift her. That is now past. Nonetheless, Daphne – I hope you see the same moon I do, when I’m thinking of you.
Like I said, I have no ill-will toward her and I do ultimately wish her the best. Have fun today Daphne! May you continue to grow exponentially over the next 29 years like you have the past several years. Here is a song I’m sending out to the world from me – some cheesy 80’s, but there is flame for your cake and my very simple sentiment.
