Yes, this is a “wonder” … it is ME with Audrey Hepburn in Dublin, Ireland. Someone took this of me, the photographer for the UNICEF events with Audrey there as UNICEF Ambassador. I am still in wonder/amazement that this experience was gifted to me. This will always hold a special place in my heart. She was an amazing woman.

Figuratively, and definitely exciting because I was being blessed with an opportunity I never would have thought about; never dreamed anything like it could happen.
While living in Ireland I became friends with the Director of UNICEF in Dublin. One day she called to ask me if I would take the photographs over a two-day event topped off with a Grand Ball and Auction to launch the Children’s Appeal. I also ended up helping to organize the final big event. The special guest for the two days of events was the then UNICEF Ambassador, Audrey Hepburn.
Turned out this was not my last communication with Audrey and her partner/manager Robert Wolders. They were amazingly lovely and wonderful to everyone. Experiences I will never forget and always treasure.
So, what is the most on fire you have ever been?
Lovely day spent OUT of the house after being cooped up most of the week due to the snow and ice keeping us indoors. It was a beautiful sunny day with warmer temperatures. It helped melt more of the ice still out there.
I missed my brisk walk/aerobic exercise today, but I did get close to an hour of easy walking. Better than nothing though.
I was wondering what I could write about tonight until I checked my emails, and there it was…
Today’s TOPIC: If you had a time machine that only let you spend one hour in a different time, what date would you go to?
I wondered where would I go? Was there a special time with a special someone ~ like my junior prom with Johnny, the love of my life who died the following summer? Was there a special surprise event ~ which would surely be when I assisted my friend in Ireland who was Director of UNICEF by helping finalize plans for the Gala Ball and Auction; and photographing the two days of events with Audrey Hepburn, UNICEF Ambassador to launch the Children’s Relief fundraiser.
Or maybe the day I woke up with a story in my head, and I spent the day writing and dreaming of other ways the story could be old, not just as a published book. I love the amazing magical story, and that first magical day when it began. What about the day my brother came into my life and special times together throughout our lives.
There were many other special moments and very special people as part of those times; and each could be at least an hour I would enjoy going back to in my time machine. I can’t pick just one, but I am grateful for the wonderful memories. And when I think about it, I CAN actually go back and relive and enjoy those moments…in my memory and in my heart…anytime I want.
