The Good

In the chaos of this world we live in we tend to forget that we're surrounded by goodness and that good things happen all the time. For me, personally, today is a good day to recall this fact.
Nine years ago to the day, I landed in Australia for the first time as a visiting tourist. I did lots of driving, saw many things, and after several weeks I came back home to Israel. But it didn't feel right; I came back to the wrong place. Two weeks later I was already working in earnest on my Australian visa application.
And eight years ago to the day I met the person who would be my wife while working at the office.

In general, I'm not the person to associate some mystic qualities to a calendar date. In this case, though, I like to use the date as a reminder for some of the better things that happened to me in my life. At my age, my memory is not as good as it used to be; I take every reminder I can get.
