Today was the day when what I dream for all year finally comes true. Whenever I am stressed or tired or afraid, I retreat here in my mind. (I spend a lot of time at this spot in my daydreams actually, not just when I’m feeling stressed, because it’s a very dear place to me).
I sat here, looking at this:
I soaked it in, trying to absorb the very place through every pore of my skin, fixing every little detail in my memory. I closed my eyes and let the sounds and smells wash over me, savoring the beauty of this place. I let my feet caress the grass in this place I love so much.
And I knit. Surrounded by birds, dappled sun through tree leaves, sweet flowers perfuming the air. Is there any felicity in the world to compare with this? I felt as if for a few hours I had been transported to heaven.
Precious hours here will soothe and inspire my heart through another year, until I can lay eyes on my beloved park again.
Blessings to you,
