Great Expectations

Charles Dickens was right. We are crushed by our great expectations. Eventually we are left with the bleak light as reflected in the shards of our broken dreams.
What about success? If expectations pair with our dreams, we retain a bit of glamour and joy. In our working lives and business we pair customers’ expectations with our product. We deliver real value.

Success is like dismantling a rainbow, analyzing it piece by piece, color by color, and still believing in it and still seeing what’s behind. Delivering real value is delivering a rainbow, in one shape or another.

What about the money? The face value of success is primarily money, of course, and the conundrum. Lately I have met people with their dreams all shattered and broken, people who have failed manifold. Still, they are happy with many things and with the knowledge. After all, time and feelings pass like quiet dreams…like the ones who didn’t dare shout their urgency to come into being. Failure is not the tragedy. Learning and preserving the faith in you and your dreams are the other facets of success.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. It is not only about going on, fighting on, repairing what went wrong, but doing it in precious ways, in gold, platinum, and with love. Life is about repairing. Building and repairing as mistakes Do happen and menace our fragile construction. It takes patience and strength to repair with gold in unaltered happiness.

Positivism and dedication. Give your best as people deserve the best that can be done for them. Play the most beautiful and colorful tune ever. Nonetheless the song can charm, unite or divide. Nothing to be done, but repair and redo the song in blue, green, red precious words ready to take over worlds and hearts…As well.














Art by Rafal Olbinski.

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacsÔÇÖ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
