Thanks to all my pains that are finally shown as gifts.
Thanks God to make things happen.
Thank you Yumi Sonoda and team answering to the call of creativity
Thank you to my pack
Thanks to my Elusive one always supporting my dreams
Thanks love to make me stand up whatever were the storms
Thanks Universe laws to guide us on the right path
Thanks Mother Nature to rule my soul
Let the music and rhythms make dance our hearts
I feel blessed, so are you.
