Last Mango In 2018…

I woke up with the lyrics of the “Last Mango In Paris” playing in my head.

In psychology, they say those weird songs that populate in our mushy brains is a way for our subconscious brain to talk to our conscious brain. That’s weird. Right?

Well, if you don’t believe me then look it up.

Think about it. Today is the last day of 2018. “Hell yeah!” or more like “I don’t want you to go 2018…” Either way, today is my last mango in 2018.

2018 was one of the best years in my life. It was my first year without any surgeries. It was the year I found out why I lost my hearing. It was the first time I got to go back to visit Italy. It was the first year I created a business. It was the first year I opened my heart. It was the first year I opened my narrow mind. 2018 was a year of many first to include tasting octopus, fried alligator and more.

Tonight, my family and I will celebrate a nice dinner to toast off the old year and welcome the new one, 2019. While I will not be taking the last plane out of Sigone, I will be taking the last dinner of 2018. Yes, there is still so much to be done, but in reality I have a first class ticket to 2019. All of my goals of 2018 were not met, but the beauty of it is I know where I want to go in 2019.

If you are reading this, I wish you a wonderful, healthy and blessed New Year.

Cheers to your First Class Ticket to 2019!



P.S. Jimmy Buffett if you are reading this. Your music is the rhythm of my soul. It moves me from Harbor to Harbor, metaphorically. I wished it did literally, but until then I will keep on listening to Margaritaville on Sirius.

  1. I feel your enthusiasm and thank you for giving a more cogent explanation for the music stuck in my head. Most of the time it is a gift for which I am grateful. Thank you for your rhapsodic perspective of this transition from ’18 to ’19.
