Sitting on top of the World
I’m known for being daydreamy, tucking myself into a space, carving it out and making it mine. From where I sit I daydream, survey and indulge. I found a new place to do so today. I decided I will share the experience with you but don’t tell anyone else ok? It’s a special place.
Firstly, I was excited because it was a sun spot, a much needed piece of warmth after the cold and snow we all longed to be liberated from this winter. From where I sat I could watch the leaves stretch in the wind, glad to be free at last. I could see new colours. I listened to the rustle of the trees and I smiled, relieved to be basking once more.
Secondly, I was excited because I was sat on a rooftop. From where I sat I could survey the world, look down into neighbour's gardens and spy on the cats that watched me quizzically. I delighted in looking up every now and then as one of the many cats tried once more to catch a squirrel. I found myself rooting for both teams, it all just looked like a fun game of chase in the sunshine. I peered into other people’s gardens and grew curious about artefacts that I could spy.
Then there was my chosen activity, a new project, ready to go and ready to entertain me with its’ freshness. I worked away, pausing to reflect that those would need sorting before summer footwear and to take another sip of nice cool wine. I wriggled my toes, glad to be bare foot, my favourite footwear of choice! I did decide those might need a little tidying to get ready for Summer though....
I sat for so long and saw so many things that by the time I had company I was full enough with indulgent solitude that I could cope with sharing.
This is going to be the first in a series of guest blogs and I want to thank A Playful Day for for starting off the series in such great style... and now as it is a Bank Holiday in the UK, I think I will take a chance to stand, stare and enjoy the peace.
And remember to let us both know what you think of the guest blogs.
