STAYING IN LOVE IS VERY SPECIAL

Sylvia Marina - Sunday, December 29, 2013

STAYING IN LOVE IS VERY SPECIAL written by Sylvia Marina

Time it seemed stood still.  Adoringly I gazed at her grandeur and then my eyes filled with warm mist as I recalled the note paper on which I had written so long ago….to see the Matterhorn.

Our decision that day to take the early train up the mountain was a wise decision. Another hour and we would have missed the moment – the fluffy white clouds shrouding her. Satisfied, my heart was filled with pleasure as we sat in silence, awed by the visible, enthralled by known, and fascinated by the vast unknown secrets of the mountains, glaciers and lakes.

My mind went to a personal experience of sitting on the great Tasman Glacier in New Zealand and hearing the grinding of rocks and boulders into sand on its journey to the ocean, mineralizing water and soils, pastures and food.

I’m not sure why, that on this day and on this mountain a little song written by christina perri hummed in my ears … ‘I have loved you for a thousand years’… interesting I’m not that old but as I felt the hand resting in mine, a moment of reality!

Just four weeks earlier David was admitted to emergency at Fremantle Hospital. Thanks to a very skilled medical team and a body that really did want to be better and the love and support of his family and friends. Every day I took him good wishes and read him the many text messages. David feels love and knew you were all out there urging him to wellness … we loved this message, we are here for you, we make good soup, do dishes, clean house, just call and we will be there!

David’s specialist urged us to continue our holiday plans, knowing that surgery was necessary on our return, which has since happened. But this day in the Swiss Alps was ours, we were amongst the greats. The great wonderments of nature!

This day we were observers. Feeling the breeze, observing lofty mountain grandeurs! Our experience was different to those who raced around taking as many pictures as possible before descending the mountain on the next train, or those who arrived later and discovered the Matterhorn was not visible their body language told how miffed they were. And then there were the walkers and climbers enjoying a day in their boots.

All experiences differ from the observers who view, inwardly feel, stand still and dream, sit on a rock and meditate, to glimpses through the lens of a camera to a zoom around in a helicopter to the real mountaineers who physically climb and those who actually through sweat and skill reach the Matterhorn summit.

We were on route to Vienna (I had a conference speaking engagement) and had ten days in Switzerland, lakes to mountains, cows with bells and chocolate making, waterfalls fabulous weather, lots of walks and moments of just breathing and loving nature.

We had several days in Austria. The conference and time for concerts, a Viennese Ball it was well worth packing our ‘especially for the ball’ outfits. We glided and tripped over the parquetry and enjoyed a few quicksteps, a couple of fox trots, lots of giggles, bruised toes and fun memories!

The Mozart orchestral concert in the golden ballroom was absolutely grand. We also went to a ballet and orchestral concert which was in a small ballroom but a great event. Before leaving Austria we squeezed in a day trip to Saltsburg the quaint town where parts of the ‘Sound of Music’ was filmed. Before our flight home to Perth we spent a half day relaxing on a boat on the Danube River.

Business, it’s been an eventful year. I’ve had speaking engagements in Russia, USA, Spain, Austria and rewarding speaking engagements and programs here in West Australia.  I am grateful you understand there are those times when family must come first and a couple of times numbers were insufficient, some seminars were cancelled but overall and with health considerations we helped many find meaning and purpose, clarity and direction.

At the end of 2012 I wrote, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.’ Little hands, little smiles and little people encircle our hearts. Today, our deepest gratitude to our adult children who share their children with us, it is a blessing and a privilege to be involved in the lives of our beautiful grandchildren.

David and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary.
Falling in love is easy and staying in love is very special. 

Falling in love is exciting with growing passion and the intensity of discovering the one you love you learn so much about yourself and in the ardor of a relationship you realize intensity is not the same as intimacy. Intimacy takes courage and work. Intimacy is the daily interactions and service that maintains strengthens and grows love into something pure and good.

By observation this is what I learn from my precious man - Be Kind, Listen, Appreciate and Support – this is his every day gift to me.

Thanks for being with us this year, as you welcome ‘new beginnings’ may your life know deep love, meaning and purpose.

Sylvia & David
