Time Flies At 55, Happy Birthday Masala!

55 years ago, I made my grand entrance into this world. It was Mardi Gras in Grenada, Carnival Tuesday, so this little island girl was supposed to be jolly and full of verve. Instead, I turned out to be a very serious person, quite introspective, with a gentle soul. Both a blessing and a curse.

Where has the time gone? I remember sitting with my cousin outside her house, talking about what we wanted to do when we grew up. I can tell you that my two dearest wishes have not materialized yet. A good husband and a beautiful house were just not in the cards for me this time around.

Dwelling on the things that I don’t have instead of being thankful for what I do have is an easy thing to do – it’s the lazy thing to do. I will focus instead on my two lovely daughters, my loyal puppy and the supportive family that God gave me. Oh, and on the opportunity and wisdom of taking pictures of the food that I am fortunate enough to get to eat.
