Serendib, that you can’t get to without losing your way first. Sort of like
Shangri-La or Brigadoon. The truth is it is a wonderful place, where you
find incredible love and joy and fulfillment and peace. You can be in and
out of the town in a moment, barely having time to stop. You might not
even have known you stopped actually. Then again it could be your final
destination, where you retire and live out your years. Who knows.
All I know is that it makes me smile whenever I find myself in the town of
Serendib. And I always order a plate of shrimp when I go (see Repo Man
video clip on an earlier napkin post to know what I am talking about).
This is for all those whose life didn’t go in the direction they hoped or
expected. Let it be known that your life is at this moment for a reason,
no matter your age. It starts new today and you can do what you want.
Susan Boyle, Albert Einstein, Grandma Moses, James Michener, many
more have in common one thing, they didn’t know how they were going
to achieve their goals, in some cases they didn’t even know their goals.
But Susan sang 27 years late, Einstein worked away in spite of only
finding a lowly clerk job, Grandma Moses started painting at age 70
and Michener didn’t publish his first book until age 40.
They all found themselves in the little village of Serendib having no
clue how they got there. But they knew what to do once they arrived.
They worked towards their dreams. So, check in to the Serendib Hotel
and make your plan.
