I spent Thursday at the Zoo with my neice, brother and mum. We are lucky we had such an awesome day for it. It was so funny watching my neice play around the zoo. It reminded me of my trips as a child to the Zoo and the wonder and excitement I felt. So often people say to me “your such a child”, “your so immature”.
Everyday I strive to see the wonder in day to day things. The world in a rain drop, the sunlight reflecting on my keys. I still stomp in puddles and run through the rain. The world is an extrodinary place and so often we miss it because we are in too much of a hurry to get to the things we think are important.
I love this quote from Henry Miller. I have posted it before and I’ll post it again.
“the aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware”.
