It's day 2 of 365 and I already have 2 new beginnings.
Spaces & places I've been and things I've learned
For many in South Africa, it is still storming. The burned stores we see are only an indication of what could come; this chaos is only a light pour. If we do nothing, the rainbow will soon be eclipsed by dark clouds and winds strong enough to uproot the jacaranda and mimosa trees.
When our ability to be carefree comes at the expense of others, without their consent, we are careless. We indicate that we believe our energy and time is more important than theirs. This too applies to ourselves.
"... My father wears cardigans and poor-boy hats, unironically. My father drinks whisky with milk...."
Every new day is an opportunity to practise gratitude for the gift of life. If you slow down and take the score of all that surrounds, all those who surround you, you would realise how much of it was once on your Wishlist.
