Today I went and looked at beautiful things.
I looked at flowers in a market. orchids tumbling down bright stems.
Piles of vegetables laid on on straw mats with such care and precision, sold by wrinkled old ladies with toothless smiles and soil stained hands.
I saw the sun twinkling on the lazy river, with jungle flowing over its muddy banks.
I watched a child in a bright white shirt about to leap in a puddle and be pulled out by a shouting mother; no shared language but I understood every word. She looked at me, rolled her eyes and laughed.
I saw the beauty of the sand balls made by the hermit crabs, laid out in random patterns on the still damp sand.
The deep greens of the jungle.....full of lushness and life.
I am sorry that I have filled my blog with self pitying misery and moaning when I should spend more time looking around me and being grateful for what I can see.
