I went for a run/walk today. It was hard, because I really pushed myself. Afterwards, I decided to just walk. I took out my phone and started recording my observations.
so many birds singing their morning songs
the sun peeking through floating clouds
a gentle breeze cools the air
rushing rivers of water flow along the curbs
waters collected during last night's storm
piles of brittle tree limbs litter the pavement
the neighborhood is quiet
only the sounds of nature can be heard
a far cry from the early morning crackles of thunder and lightning
the air smells fresh, almost like "newness"
a warm smile from a contractor busy about his work
the trees shake off showers of rain left behind
the sun shines through a little bit more
present longer as the clouds thin out
this gentle breeze cools me so
I needed to get out today...be off my normal routine in good way...being present in this moment...seeing, hearing, feeling the beauty all around me.
