Yes, I know. Life is hectic. Running from class to class, rushing through work, cooking, cleaning, social life. But take a moment, won’t you? At the bus stop, at the window, and just watch. That’s what I’m doing right now. Theres a black pigeon with white wing feathers walking around, next to another pigeon with white underpants and a white band on its head. There are also some juvenile gulls, all searching for food under a very old beech tree, spiky nuts still on the branches. The clouds are long and stringy, its a little cool and windy out, and it smells like barbecue.
Sometimes, it feels good just to notice. Even if it’s just for a moment.
