413. 2016 is coming in with all your dreams and the beautiful things that you desire for yourself and others.
This year I celebrated Christmas twice…!
First in my beloved Florence, surrounded by my children and grandchildren… what a joy to admire the expressions of happiness, wonder and joy on the faces of my grandchildren! For a day I became a child again myself!
Christmas takes us back in time… we return to our childhoods… we rediscover the pleasure of being together with our loved ones… for a moment even the passage of time slows down and seems to stand still.
The best gifts I have received? The drawings of my grandchildren… real artists… I was touched… they, like me, love colours… children have a unique mastery in approaching the world of colours… they are artists who have learned their craft by observing the world around them, nature in all its glory… they don’t have fixed patterns in their heads, they draw freehand, think with free spirits and express their full emotions through their art!
I keep all their masterpieces… maybe I should print them on fabric and make a junior collection…!
My second Christmas was White. I was surrounded by snow at Cavalli Island… here a Winter Wonderland has already taken over. Everything sparkles in the sunlight creating a fairy-tale scenario… The pace of life has slowed down and a calm, surreal peace has embraced the entire island. I love this quiet. It allows me to reorganize my thoughts and my mind, giving me feelings and memories otherwise overwhelmed by the bustle of everyday life.
In a few hours time we shall greet the new year. It seems almost impossible that another year has already passed by… what happened to 2015… how did it fly away so quickly…? It was a great year full of important events and 2016 will be even more so!
2016 is coming in with all your dreams, your hopes and aspirations… all the things you desire… never stop dreaming because dreaming really helps your dreams come true! “When you wish upon a star…”
My wish for you is to spend the New Year with your loved ones in peace and serenity…
Un grande abbraccio!
I LOVE YOU
