This was a week for playing hooky. Walking to work, I just enjoyed the feel of the Sun and the slight briskness of the breeze. The temperature was in that perfect temperate zone that just makes you want to close your eyes and breathe deeply, to stroll and exult in the beauty and gift of a world we live in.
Yeah, I know... politics, debt, insanity and tragedy in the Middle East. Every day in the newsroom I'm inundated by the depressing aspects of humanity, but outside, there was a beckonning joy.
I didn't indulge much during the week. It was too intense, but today, I'm fleeing into brilliance. It's time to stop and find some roses to sniff, to feel the cushion of grass, and to chase the wind.
Hope wherever you are you too get to enjoy this day.
