It felt as though I had just fallen asleep when the alarm went....surely some mistake because I opened one eye and it was still dark outside. But there was Clare, up and about, singing and packing a bag and the clock read 4.45am. I followed her out of the door and we drove down the hill. I looked up at the sky and amazingly there was an eclipse of the moon so I knew it was a special special day. I really believe in signs and I look for them everywhere in everything. The universe is always talking to you, telling you the answers to your questions, as long as you open you eyes and ears to them. I decided to trust, have faith, and go with the flow. At Paul's hotel there was a limo waiting and we climbed into it and drove to LAX, but not the usual terminal, a small building nearby where we said hello and were taken straight out to a plane sitting outside.
It was called a Citation 10 and it was really beautiful and apparently the fastest commercial jet in the world at the moment. It must have been because four hours later we were landing in NY with the skyline winking and smiling in the sunshine. Wow, we were in New York City again.
We drove in to Manhattan and checked into The Four Seasons and then Paul had to get straight on with some work he had been flown in to do. Clare meanwhile immediately met up with one of the closest people in the world to her, someone who she counts as one of her best friends, somebody she trusts implicitly who is wonderful, funny, kind, loyal, and always there for her.
He was in town because he is competing in the US Open Tennis this week so the timing couldn't have been more perfect. They talked and laughed and it was great to see Clare so happy and at peace and comfortable again. They hung out for hours until Paul called and said he was done and we headed downtown to Tribeca for a business meeting with take out from Nobu which made it special.....we were done by midnight and headed back to the airport where the jet was waiting to speed us back to Los Angeles.....wow what an exciting day and what a memory, only made better by sharing it with two of the greatest people on this planet.....love and friends will always make anything good better......
