Simple Pleasures

I am realizing how I MUST MUST live in the "right now" of it all.
I must take joy and peace and pride in what is actually happening . . . actually right now.

Today . . .
Went to the library; saw lots of kids walking and riding bikes to get there . . . some came in with their helmets on.
Ate a crepe with wonderful blue cheese inside.
Helped an old man put a watermelon in his trunk . . . and then he pointed to his groin area and explained that he just had surgery.
Bought and arranged two beautiful bouquets of flowers.
Smiled as a I pulled out a beautiful yellow bowl from my cabinet to defrost chicken in.

Simple pleasures people . . . I have forgotten how much they soothe and feed and nourish and grow and heal . . . keep your eyes open . . . they are all around . . . and my attentiveness is just begining.

P-NUTTY . . .
REALLY IT WAS AS HEART-WARMING AS A CAT BRINGING A DEAD MOUSE TO THE FEET OF HIS BELOVED OWNER!

. . . IN OTHER WORDS, YOU APPRECIATE THE GESTURE AS MUCH AS YOU ARE DISTURBED BY THE CONTENT.
