TAKE TIME TO SMELL THE ROSES.
I live a block away from the Pacific Ocean. Early this morning, for the first time this year, I took a walk along the pier. How sad is that?A prime example of me taking things for granted. I should be out there every morning rain or shine. Anyway, summer is finally here (yay) and it was just beautiful. The newness of the start of a day, the sound of the waves crashing, the smell of the salty sea air. There was a myriad of people; walkers, cyclists, runners, fishermen/women, religion pushers, homeless folk and the people who are living life hard. Visiting tourists mingling with the locals who were out walking their dogs. The usual array or big and small Seagulls waiting for droppings of food from the people fishing. Families playing together, lifeguards and local council maintenance workers. AND I havn't even mentioned the view looking out onto the ocean.
It was nice to take the time to appreciate my surroundings.
Today, life is good.
