Here's to 3 years of blogging...

Algeria near Djanet Annual Tuareg festival called SBIBA Women playing drum Sahara desert.

Today mirage-a-trois turns 3 and it has been quite a journey. I’ve got the chance to write about all sorts of things and share what I hope is an alternate view of the world we live in, in all its beauty as well as its ugliness but most of all it has allowed me to celebrate the many 'unconventionally' beautiful women and their lives. 

The blog has forced the demon to search (and I don’t just mean google). I am thankful for this platform and for the ability to share my views with ease but mostly I’m thankful to all of you for dropping by and sharing your views and your time because in this crazy urbanised, technological world that we live in time has become far too scarce. 

So until I leave for the Sahara where I hope to lay peacefully beside an oasis, a good book in hand, watching the sunset over the dunes, listening for the voices in the sand and hearing the rhythmic melodies of Tinariwen as they waft through the air, I would like to wish you enough...

  I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Goodbye.”
