Following Our Path in Life

Following our path in life“The Path” was taken at Kanaka Creek, Maple Ridge, BC, Canada.  ©Copyright Malu Couttolenc – All Rights Reserved.

These last two years have been difficult because my health and life were at risk. On April 2013, I was diagnosed with three aneurysms and went through two complicated surgeries. This year I’ve been hospitalized as well due to some complications from last year’s issues.

After all this, I realize how fragile our life is and we should never waste a single minute to meditate about our spiritual existence and do our best to become a better person every day while we are here. We should always follow our path in life whatever our goals are, we should never give up, we must be positive and happy. We don’t know how much time we have left.

Let your loved ones know how much you care for them, send them a note or give them a call, always keep in touch.
Also never procrastinate and don’t leave things for the future. You never know if there will be a tomorrow. We have to live each day appreciating every single detail around us.

Just One Note

Music food of my soul

Music is a very important part in my everyday life; it is the food of my soul. I listen to music all day long and enjoy playing guitar.
Which is my favorite? All kinds! It just depends on the moment and mood.

Listening to the sax makes me feel relaxed. I don’t play it but wish I could, so I just enjoy listening to some fantastic sax players like David Sanborn, Kenny G, Dave Koz, Gerald Albright and others.

Why is music a part of my life? Well… because it lifts up my spirit when I’m feeling sad; brings back memories and certain songs remind me of places and people. I sing when I’m happy and at times when I am sad as well. I can’t imagine life without music.

This image is called “Just One Note” and it was taken to honour all those talented saxophone players.

What is your favorite music?
