The Simple things
I think I have finally figured out now to slow time or at least to stretch it out, and that is by enjoying the simple pleasures of life. I mean after all this is the stuff that life is really made of, the little things are the building blocks of my life so why not embrace them and submerge myself in them. Minnie Riperton said it, "the simple things, the lovely simple things, the sunset and the dawn." So on thursday of this week, the simple act of having tea with my daughter at the Japanese tea gardens really lifted my spirits. We didn't have much time but we took time , and the drinking of tea became a lovely experience of being in the moment.
