603 - simple things
Some things are making me angry:
Like the lone vigil outside the State Parliament by the anti-choice protester whose sign reads, “Unborn kids can’t defend themselves. Please don’t let abortion at 9 months become legal”. So, so wrong. Emotive and incorrect but that about sums up the good christian men who want to control women's bodies.
Or the fact that the USA can find close to a trillion dollars to prop up Wall Street but not fund universal healthcare in their own country.
And the worrying thought that their election campaign looks like a rerun of Dumb & Dumber. I’m not convinced even the “good guys” have got the gumption to steer that nation back to some semblance of humanity.
Instead of ranting ad nauseum about things that are distressing me – here’s a picture of spring (which you may have already eyeballed over here.)
Time to give thanks for the small pleasures in my life like:
The smell of jasmine scenting my street.
Almost being motivated enough to do a good spring clean, or at least a de-clutter.
The affection of the household felines.
Buying an inexpensive oil on canvas by an emerging artist.
Feeding the worm farm.
The warm morning light in my backyard.
Solar powered Vitamin D.
Simple meals at home.
Chilled rosé on sunny days.
Watching clouds dance overhead.
What simple things are giving you pleasure at the moment?
