I usually head out for my long, morning walk, after the kids have left for school.
I take a long walking route, about 6 to 7 kms. The sun is usually quite hot by then, and the sky a nice cornflower blue.
As I walk my first kilometer, the chaotic sounds of ‘morning madness’ at home, before everyone’s on their way, slowly evaporate from my head.
The sounds are slowly replaced by the twittering of lots of birds – mynas, orioles, sparrows and pigeons.They flit about from bush to bush.
On my walk, there is a stretch of about 1 km, which is along a long canal that winds its way across town. Here, there are lovely bushes and shrubs of small flowers.
I don’t know their names but enjoy stopping and looking at them. Small orange-red flowers, milky white ones, baby pink ones, bright orange ones. Such pretty and small flowers. The bees are busy collecting honey, and I usually stop to take pictures of these beauties.
I am truly amazed at their beauty, gently swaying in the breeze, sharing their beauty for all to see, expecting nothing in return!
These are my pit stops, where I recharge my batteries. My walkometer on the phone shows that on this stretch my pace is very slow. But the walkometer doesn’t know that on this stretch, I regain my energies and enthusiasm to meet my
The flowers make me smile and give me hope. They make me believe that all is well with world. Sharing some pictures of these beauties. Hope you enjoy them.
So what’s your pit stop? What makes you recharge? Would love to know.
