kate5kiwis: sunset soup

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

sunset soup

early evening found us gathered around the wooden table outside in the setting sun for the first time this summer. we dined on colourful Sunset Soup and more Boysenberry Cloud Cake and we made our Birthday Speeches to Sambo, and i found myself counting my blessings:
curly girlie,
artiste, soulmate.

affectionate poet,
songwriter, lyricist.

musician, comedian,
everybody's friend.

darling tickly boy,
still with baby teeth.

mister and missus cheese,
hopeless romantics.

and i found myself longing for the bestest big brother in the whole of the world. cos for all my ravings that i'm so happy that he's found his groove and such a beautiful life,
i really, really miss his everyday presence
and intelligence
and earthedness
and quirkyness and singer-songwritingness
and playfulness
and charmingness
to the bright blue sky and back.


and it occured to me again just how thankful i am for this beautiful bubble i'm in: for shared sunsets, for silly conversations, for beach romps and movie lines and songs and general hilarity, for smiles and sweetness and squabbles and general aliveness, for all these amazing peeps who grace my life. it's so good.
