It sounds more romantic than it should. And, it is winter yet we had a cloudless, sunny day. Yea, ridiculous, I know..
It was a little too busy just because it was the Half Iron Man competition. I still enjoyed a 4 km walk. A little bit of reading. A little bit of people-watching. A little bit more dog-watching. A whole lot more smiling.
A vegetarian pizza from Surf Riders and a coffee. Why on Earth would one not have a smile on their face!?
“What is real to me is the power of our awareness when we are focused on something beyond ourselves. It is a shaft of light shining in a dark corner. Our ability to shift our perceptions and seek creative alternatives to the conondrums of modernity is in direct proportion to our empathy. Can we imagine, witness, and ultimately feel the suffering of another?” – Terry Tempest Williams in Finding Beauty in a Broken World
That is it! I feel refreshed.
