Farewell Letter

by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

For reasons of health, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Colombia’s illustrious Nobel Laureate for literature, has declared his retirement from public life. He has terminal cancer and sends this letter of farewell to friends and lovers of literature.

If God, for a second, forgot what I have become and granted me a little bit more of life, I would use it to the best of my ability.

I wouldn’t, possibly, say everything that is in my mind, but I would be more thoughtful l of all I say.

I would give merit to things not for what they are worth, but for what they mean to express.

I would sleep little, I would dream more, because I know that for every minute that we close our eyes, we waste 60 seconds of light.

I would walk while others stop; I would awake while others sleep.

If God would give me a little bit more of life, I would dress in a simple manner, I would place myself in front of the sun, leaving not only my body, but my soul naked at its mercy.

To all men, I would say how mistaken they are when they think that they stop falling in love when they grow old, without knowing that they grow old when they stop falling in love.

I would give wings to children, but I would leave it to them to learn how to fly by themselves.

To old people I would say that death doesn’t arrive when they grow old, but with forgetfulness.

I have learned so much with you all, I have learned that everybody wants to live on top of the mountain, without knowing that true happiness is obtained in the journey taken & the form used to reach the top of the hill.

I have learned that when a newborn baby holds, with its little hand, his father’s finger, it has trapped him for the rest of his life.

I have learned that a man has the right and obligation to look down at another man, only when that man needs help to get up from the ground.

Say always what you feel, not what you think. If I knew that today is the last time that that I am going to see you asleep, I would hug you with all my strength and I would pray to the Lord to let me be the guardian angel of your soul.

If I knew that these are the last moments to see you, I would say “I love you.”

There is always tomorrow, and life gives us another opportunity to do things right, but in case I am wrong, and today is all that is left to me, I would love to tell you how much I love you & that I will never forget you.

Tomorrow is never guaranteed to anyone, young or old. Today could be the last time to see your loved ones, which is why you mustn’t wait; do it today, in case tomorrow never arrives. I am sure you will be sorry you wasted the opportunity today to give a smile, a hug, a kiss, and that you were too busy to grant them their last wish.

Keep your loved ones near you; tell them in their ears and to their faces how much you need them and love them. Love them and treat them well; take your time to tell them “I am sorry,” “forgive me, “please,” “thank you,” and all those loving words you know.

Nobody will know you for your secret thought. Ask the Lord for wisdom and strength to express them.

Show your friends and loved ones how important they are to you.

Send this letter to those you love. If you don’t do it today…tomorrow will be like yesterday, and if you never do it, it doesn’t matter either, the moment to do it is now.

For you, with much love,

Your Friend, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Sometimes we get reminder from LIFE... It happened to me few days ago. I found the "Farewell Letter" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, translated to Hebrew and written on sheets of paper in a box. I received it as FW, at a completely different time of internet, my first years of surfing actually. It seems like long time ago, I was impressed while reading it.. and read it few times. Surely my look of life changed since I read it the first time, and I felt I can read it again. I was impressed by his wisdom of life.

Missing the old days in AW, days that surely will not come back, nor some of you that I loved.
Here's those few words, to remind me and YOU, of the best of the best, here... Love from Israel.

Even if my paintings changed during the last 3 decades ( or more).. there were best moments in time I will never forget, like this week, for example, this one was painted.. The week before.. the weekend after.. the week later... Life.. I did not really wrote that time of my life.. I paint and designed... Yet memories are still with me... Forever. In the last months, I found few "diaries" I wrote many years ago. Not much, but something.. It made me smile to remember, things forgotten really. The understanding of the importance of it grew now. I am sorry I did not wrote much more, but that was because I was so busy. I hope to write more in Future. I will say good night over there..

Good evening over there... In stead of saying I hope you are well, .. I will ask:
How are you dear friend ?
Long time ago.. isn't it ?... at least since I wrote here.
Many people are sent my way, some I can sEE, for one single moment, or identify .. Many I guess I can't see or will not see. Some I can identify as sent my way to see me without I know them, or will never really get to know them.

A while ago, I saw a person, at a walk in the Park, He was holding two Green sticks in his hands. I was not alone but with my husband. Anyway... few moments after sEEing this person, I thought he looked familiar to me.... perhaps changed during the years, that I did not see him.
Resemble to someone from my very PAST, Whom I did not see quite a lot of years. Anyway, he went fast, the other direction than we walked fast.
I was not sure but perhaps, he identify me or us as well.

For quite a long time, this is done, that people are sent my way, while I am on my way different places, while watching my movement, on specific timing, with or without my mobile.
It seems no one do efforts to arrange this as arranged "known in advance meeting for me".. But a "JUST BY THE WAY MEETINGS.. BY CHANCE OR NOT BY CHANCE" that I meet you.
What's the purpose really...?
It seems I become known to too many people stranger to me without asking me,.

I believe this is not so OK, to VERY many people , to wait for me everywhere possible, whether I am going your way, or not at all, staying indoors....
Everyone in his her turn.
I will ask, should I identify you, or your brother, that afternoon?... Or not...?
For those know me, and wish to see me, I truly recommend making appointment - That would be more logical.
Method of spying at my mobile or at my home, using neighbors, or other people spying, is not a way, I am sorry...
Subjects of talk, that people are given, I dislike also, and find it not only useless, annoying, and i learned to ignore it completely.,
Some come so willingly to sEE me, while others not really
How many really manage to find NIRA?
Most did not, what a waste ?.. I think.

In this opportunity, I ask all those that view me in my private life, to not enter any of the links you were supplied of my private life.
Those who are wise enough , or brave enough, I would ask to send me links of what you can view without our knowings.
It is your duty, you know it.
For people that I knew, and were part of my life, there is a chance to see me arranging appointments.
Some of those " planed meetings " ( planed not by myself) are just ridicules, sorry and make me, laugh, and could not stop laughing.. and embarrassing to say the least.


In this note I wrote few things that not necessary has the connection between.
So, if you are from my people ( you must know it ) This did not meant to offend YOU at all.
Please do all that is in your power to stop this situation, that some team of people insisted to start .. it can't continue this way.
They indeed made me famous to so many people.. BUT ENOUGH, I must continue with my life, IN PEACE, and without any SPY, in perfect privacy of me and those dear to me, such as my close family.
Thank you to those that are doing efforts to help changing the situation.

When I asked how are you, I meant it, I wonder, you know, and miss you truly.

Remembering this site, and how much things meant for me here... ONCE... And not only to me.

AND Then... I think of other sites, I used to post... Things changed there too.. What once was best in AW, I couldn't really find in several different sites, that I used to post, or post... Was it the fact, that after, my official web-site, I posted here first.... or what... Learning what internet is, and understanding more the changes... Internet is not as it was... things will never be the same, not only for me, but for many others. What internet gave, it took much more I believe in BALANCE, of every doing. Sometimes going back to good things, not virtually I mean, with NEW Creativity thoughts, bring NEW THINGS creatively... Leaving what no longer suitable... at least for now. I kind of remember a song, from T.V. series... ( before internet really )To Remember Dreams And .... well.. to. CONTINUE.... Yes, I remember very old dreams of mine from my twenties... Long before internet... Reflecting... and reflecting... Good night from here... Have yourself some really good things to do.
