The Contract

Island Notes-One Hundred

I must start by saying how important friends are to me.  They are not family.  They are people who you encounter during this thing we call life, incidental contact with other humans who resonate with your soul.  One such person that I had the serendipity to meet way back in the the 70s was Tunbi Adeogba.  She hails from the British Virgin Islands, and after multiple decades abroad, Tunbi returned to her sweet little island of Virgin Gorda, specifically to the Caribbean village known as The Valley.

Her island spirit has never diminished, even during her many years in the high and dry  New Mexico desert.  And perhaps that was our attraction to each other.  We were both island people living hundreds of miles away from where our hearts said we should be.  But we both landed well.  Here is Tunbi’s New Year’s greeting to me and others who are, for reasons significant or less so, important in her life.  I feel privilege to be included.  It is a down island declaration of true friendship…

After serious and cautious consideration… your contract of friendship has been renewed for the New Year 2012!
My Wish for You in 2012….
May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had, forget your home address! In simple words …………
May 2012 be the best year of your life!!
One love,
Tunbi
