Shiny Song #12

26 Jun

I fear the cold!

But right now, my desire to be amongst nature is outweighing that fear and I’m getting up for a run in the icy mornings…And I’ve noticed something lovely.

Yes, it’s cold and my ears and nose hurt. But the dew on the trees catches the light in ways I’ve never seen it before. The air smells cleaner somehow. The people who are out there on the streets and in the park with their dogs smile and shrug at each other’s madness. It’s a shivery, crazy joy.

And sometimes, like this morning, it looks like this:

Perth Winter

This song reminds me that it’s always about embracing right now:

“Breathe, breathe in the air
Set your intentions
Dream with care

Tomorrow’s a new day for everyone
A brand new moon and brand new sun

So follow, follow the sun
The direction of the birds
The direction of love
Breathe, breathe in the air
Cherish this moment
Cherish this breath…”

And for those of you catching Melbourne trams in the icy cold? This might just get you through…

I’ll be there with you soon…
