40 gestures, 40 days, 40 years

The 40th entry. This is part of what I've learned.

A birthday is a day like any other day.
40 is not a big amount.
40 is enough.
40 is arbitrary.
Priorities are important.
Even being flexible does not always guarantee peace.
You are responsible for your own emotions.
Just because you feel something does not mean you need to say or act upon it.
Unraveling is complicated.
There is power in limits.
Life is better with people in it.
Remaining open to serendipity is a gift.
This is not the end.

The postings from this blog will soon be available as a collection, in book form self-published through lulu. To be notified when it is complete or to be added to my mailing list for future projects, please contact me at flora_form(at)hotmail(dot)com, or come back to this site for a final posting by December 31, 2007. In the meantime, tune in at my regular blog for periodic art posts.

Well .....my mind is reeling with all the deep thought/feeling that you invested during your 40 days....it is inspiring to see it all now that you have "completed" the time allotted, but, of course, you've only really started.

Thanks for sharing with your "viewing public."
