slowing down and smelling flowers

Every so often I need to be reminded to “stop and smell the roses.” Well, today I’m not near any roses so daffodils will have to do. On sunny, warm Saturday afternoons like today has been, it is important to take in these sights, sounds, smells and even feelings. By the way, I smell someone grilling nearby and I’m feeling calm with a twist of pensive reflections.

Today, I decided to spend some time at the park with Alice while enjoying some relaxing music. John Legend is on call at the moment. Normally I take a lap around the pond on foot, but I’m just going to sit and admire. My next step would be to take over a bench… but alas, I forgot my earphones yet again. No worries, that’s what Alice is for.

Another important thing to note while I bask in this beauty: my mind is pretty free. I’m not concerned with anything or anyone. It’s nice. Just as quickly as I realized this, tiny buggy things attacked Alice, forcing me to roll up my windows. Sadness. Could be worse. They could’ve been mosquitos, or bees! Then watch my calmness disappear followed by an intense drive home. Good times, indoob.
