Today would have been my beautiful soul friend Cliff Durfee’s day of birth into this Earthly experience…celebrating with him in paradise eternal.
This is a photo my dearly departed friend took of me during our time together on his favorite Moonlight Beach. It happens to be my all-time favorite candid photo taken of me.
My friend Lynne recently mentioned upon seeing this photo, “he seemed to bring out that extra special light in you”.
Another friend, Lea, shared, “this photo just personifies your essence and joy and life, in one image”.
And Cliff said, “You and nature go so well with each other!”
As I mentioned before, “it is I who felt most gratitude and honor FOR HIM, as it was the reflection of who HE is that drew out the essence of who I am”.
Thank you Cliff for bringing out the best in me and reminding me of what’s most important.
Reflecting the love and joy that you are, Cliff, and celebrating you in every breath of life.
Feeling extra gratitude and love for the dear souls who have touched my life and that really see me, bring out the best in me, inspire me to greater heights of my essence, and love me with all of my complex layers.
