A Whole New World

Today I went out for the first time after the latest new measures were implemented in the country, asking everyone to remain at home as much as possible.

Public parks are one of the few places people are still allowed to visit. They haven’t been shut off… yet.

Everywhere we look, there are reminders that we are living in a totally different and unexpected world.

Everything has changed too fast and too much.

Perhaps its all we can do, to hold on to little moments of physical freedom.

Inhaling the beauty of greenery around us, embracing the expansive blue of the sky, and sighing in quiet joy with the morning shadows.

 

Slow and Steady

As I sat down for lunch, I noticed this little guy was at the bottom of the wall. He hardly seemed to be moving, if at all.

About 10 minutes later, I looked in his direction and saw that he had made it this far. Wow, that was fast, I thought.

At the end of my lunch, as I was packing to go off, I took one more look at him and saw that he had made it to the top of the wall, and seemed to have reached his destination among the bushes.

Slow and steady. You will make it.

More Gardens – After the Rain

On a morning I was free, it struck me that it had just rained heavily. I yolo-ed and reorganised my plans for the day so that I could visit the Botanic Gardens.

I wasn’t disappointed.

The smell of wet grass, the not-too-warm-yet sunlight on my skin… the excitement of taking photos under such friendly lighting… Everything came together to make it a beautiful morning experience.
