Love ItLove It

The world outside seems happy

Early this morning I decided to go out for a walk exactly after a month. There was not a soul on the streets as I stepped out. I had the road to myself for most part of my walk. There were no stray dogs in sight either, which was a surprise for me, we have a bunch of healthy looking strays in our neighborhood.

However, what got my attention was the number of flowers blooming. along the roadside. There were Asystasia Gangetica or the Chinese Violets,  blue morning glories and mirabilis of all colors and sizes. These are usually trampled upon and they don’t look so lovely, The trees looked green and healthy devoid of the dust from the passing vehicles.

Birds filled the skies and there were a bunch of goats walking all around like they owned the place. I have never seen them in our neighborhood before.

It wasn’t a long walk according to my standards but it was a peaceful, enjoyable walk for me. I didn’t enjoy wearing my mask as it made me sweat profusely, but what is a small annoyance compared to getting out of the house after a whole month after the lockdown.

The simple joys of life seemed even more enjoyable after a long break. It broke my heart to realize how much harm we cause to nature around us.

  1. I find nature very clean. Last night I left for 1 hour by the sea. Now its waters are like a mirror. Seagulls feel like masters of the sea. They were very calm. In our open places for walks masks are optional. But I certainly wore it. Human traffic is very high.
