Iced Coffee & Life

Gypsy Breeze

In the balmy afternoon bats screech and in the distance the city hums. I stumbled in a haze of dreamlike wonder through the sprawling gardens, palm trees tower above as the scorching sun casts shadows through the canopy.

It has been almost exactly 10 years since I first came to this country, a young child with stars in her eyes and the universe on her mind. In those 10 years, from one airport to the next, turquoise tides to city fumes, one person to the next, I travelled.

As I walked with no end in mind it hit me, appreciation.

At times life seems mundane in its clockwork like pace of routine… yet remember, the only inevitable in life is change, death and birth, regrowth. Appreciate every ticking second that grips you, paradise is now and you are living now.

p.s I have made a new Tumblr for little snapshots of my daily life, http://turquoise-snippets.tumblr.com/
