I decided to take a walk. Just before I could take an afternoon nap last Saturday, I stopped myself; I decided to go to the Durban Botanical Gardens. I was an hour late for a meeting that would have been held there and I thought it would be pointless to join the team that late. I had a little conversation with myself, flipped coins in my head and I decided, “why not?” I took a lovely walk around the gardens, saw many happy faces picnicking and many more weddings. I stopped to watch a rather huge Hindu wedding at the amphitheater. It was such a colourful, bejeweled festival; it looked absolutely stunning! Before people thought I was a creep peering through the woods to see what was going on, I decided to move along swiftly. A lovely afternoon spent walking about. Laughter, cackle, birds singing, drums beating in the distance.
This was better than taking an afternoon nap.
