I went for a drink with some friends. It was a nice evening, we were listening to a concert of a local band.
I noticed that also the father of the two members was listening to the concert. While listening to the concert I observed the father, he is already in his late 70s. I know him - during the student years he and his wife stopped many times and drove me to university or back while I was hitchhiking. They were always very kind to me.
His face was shining - he looked so proud and happy when listening to his two sons. His eyes were full of love. He looked like someone who has everything that matters - right there in that moment.
Observing this intimate moment didn't make me sad. I know I will never have exactly that. But I refused to compare my life to any other life. I refuse to do injustice to my life.
I am attaching a photo that I do today on our walk with my husband and our dog. I love warm autumn colours. I love walking through our beautiful forests so much.
