Welcome to Sunday morning in this little corner of the world, where the sun is shining and the birds are singing and we were blessed with some light showers of rain last evening. It wasn't much but it was enough to freshen the garden and to have the leaves on the trees glistening.
I love the peace and calm of Sunday mornings where everyone seems to take a step back from the turmoil of the other days and to take things a little slower and more gently.
There are lots of things I would like to do today and if I don't get them done ~ then there is another day tomorrow. I have had a wonderful conversation this morning and shared laughter ~ what a great start to my day ~ conversation over a distance of 10,578.738 miles ~ absolutely wonderful and the technology blows me away.
I have been discussing with a friend the Poem by John Milton 'SABRINA FAIR" and the Broadway Stage Production of Sabrina - Woman of the World and this quote inspires me to go on to be "Sabrina Fair" :
"to do everything and see everything, sense everything; to know that life is an enormous experience and must be used. To be in the world, and of the world, and never stand aside and watch."
This I hope to make my mantra !.
Both of my daughters have full weekends Naomi and Alexis are away at Broken Hill for an engagement party and doing the journey by taking a detour of three hours via Wentworth because of flooding and bridges being down. Rebecca and Nick are very busy with Writer's Week and will be relishing the cooler days for this event, which is often a very hot time.
I went to the Movies late yesterday on my own ~ something I have never done before and I had a wonderful experience seeing "The Tree of Life" which was challenging, confronting and very deep (but then I am a deep thinker). I enjoyed it very much but still have much to process about what I saw and experienced. It certainly challenged my thinking and I will go back a revisit my thoughts often and most definitely want to view the film again and again.
I want to go shopping today for a book that I absolutely MUST have ~ it is the eleventh book in the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson and is called "The Eleventh Hour" ~ I have the other ten in the series and am a big fan of Lindsay Boxer, but if that doesn't happen there is again that other day tomorrow.
Wherever you are on this Saturday evening/Sunday morning I hope there is joy in your journey and that all is well with you. I hope my American friends are safe from the tornadoes that have swept through and that the rain ceases in New South Wales and Queensland here in Australia, and that the ground can dry and the flooding subside.
Thank you for visiting the Musings of my Heart ~ a quiet and warm heart today, and one that holds close all those who are struggling on their journey for what ever reason.
Love and hugs,
