I woke up to the sound of birds. The sky was still grey but a rosy tint was forming around the eastern horizon.
Time to move out, I told myself before a second wave of sleep caught me.
Within ten minutes, I was on the road, Bob, my pug, by my side. I decided to cycle… Roads at this hour are beautifully bereft of traffic.
Birdsong enveloped me from all sides. All my senses were on high alert. I deposited Bobbie with his walker and cycled off slowly. I cycle for pleasure. It’s a process of observing nature, the road, the mechanics of the body, so flawless in its balance, the machine, so well-designed, just a gentle purr of the chain as the pedals move…
The morning air is cool, welcoming and fresh. It wont be so, even half an hour from now.
And then I stop. Like me, my favourite bird is also stunned by the colours of morning… I capture it in its regal stance as we both observe what lies in front of us… It’s beauty beyond limits…
This is why I keep my walking shoes by my bedside, no excuses.
For in walking just like in painting… An intention is not good enough, execution, is. 😊
