Henry David Thoreau
As I found myself walking alone, I remembered what my SiL said the other day. The sky being clear of planes after Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland erupted. Honestly, I haven't really given that much attention and when I looked up--it's as if I have looked at the sky for the first time and realized how beautiful and clear it was, with cumulus clouds gathering around. It's true that there are times we tend to overlook little things which seems unimportant. Family and work obligations clouded our vision to look further and see them thoroughly and in the process forget that these seemingly less unimportant things are the ones which makes us creative and more in touch with ourselves and the others.
It was a lovely afternoon, flowers blooming everywhere-red/yellow tulips,daffodils! What a beautiful sight! I know that I am not the only one enjoying the wonders of nature. There are changes in people's attitude. More positive. Welcoming. Happy. It's amazing how a slight change of weather can affect us all. Back home, my sister was complaining on how terribly hot it is. I imagined her sitting under the shade of the big mango tree in front of our house, fanning her self, drinking a glass of iced tea while restraining the children from playing under the heat of the sun.
Though I let myself take this all in, my allergy is getting in the way. This also cause me not to garden for a long period of time. I ought to get some medicine next year when I'm done breastfeeding my youngest.
I smiled as I walk trying hard not to think if everything's alright with my girls and their father. Somehow I will get used to the idea of my "me time" and yes, I still need a new pair of shoes because I intend to walk more and savor the wonderful things around me.
