A reminder to be present … Take a walk and find three amazing things.
Here’s another perfect moment from the roadside.
A walk with husband and dog to the far end of the farm, through the fresh cut grass.
As night falls and the calls of magpies give way to morepork owls, the glowing windows guide us past the dam which reflects the last of the light … back over the fields … to home.
Freedom of will is the ability to do gladly that which we must do.
- Carl Jung
Today, that which was required was a long day in the city. Swamped with stuff. People. Tasks. Communications. Frustrations. Challenges.
And yet it was easy to be glad. And to thank my lucky stars that I’m in this interesting maelstrom at this interesting time.
The pic of the day is a glimpse of blue sky shining from the office block.
Today was remarkable for the perfect, glowing double rainbow that followed us on our drive home from Northland. By Takapuna it was the most vibrant and complete example any of us had ever seen, set against a dark grey brooding sky.
Frustratingly, my camera was in the boot and we were on a busy motorway, so this shot is not that brilliant rainbow but an earlier fragment.
Later, as Sam the taxi driver took me on the final stretch home, he spoke of the beautiful rainbow he had seen this afternoon. His passengers had been amazed and said they had never seen one so flawless.
Someone should have taken a photo, Sam said.
Another one that got away …
