This morning the sun streamed in through the open kitchen door. Ahead of me was a lazy, unstructured day - nowhere particular to be, nothing particular to do........a rare oasis of audacious self-indulgence. So....... I relaxed back in my chair, relishing the warmth on my face, and enjoyed an uncomplicated breakfast of vanilla yoghurt with raspberries and pistachios. (Yep!, those bewitching green fellows still have their spell cast on me! )
Lolling in that elusive - and at this time of year, oh so fleeting - glimpse of sunlight; promise of pleasures to come, the words of Art Garfunkel floated through my mind...
"Slow down, you move too fast,
you've got to make the mornin' last,
just, kickin' down the cobblestones,
lookin' for fun, and feelin' groovy"
I love how the sunshine changes everything..........
.............colours glow brighter, light floods all the forgotten corners, and life feels good.
" Through primrose-tufts, in that sweet bower.
The periwinkle trail'd its wreathes;
And 'tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes."
Sometimes the best things in life really are the simple things!
