I look around in haste.....

One of those days when you wake up... more than at peace with the world.
Not just with a smile on your face... but with an almost tangible joy in your guts...
You reconfirm if you are not in a dream... and snuggle back into the blankets for 10 more minutes of precious sleep...
But the almost conscious presence of the emotion...is too amusing to let you drift away.

Even the missed bus... the gymnastics to avoid the mud-puddles formed from last night's rain..
the balancing act of dripping umbrella in one hand and the frantic search for change for the ticket... unsuccessful attempt at finding a seat... doing a little jig to the tune of the bumpy ride...

fails to take away... the glint in my eye and the spring in my step...
as I walk to work... when the weather is just right
Folded hands and eyes closed I take note of the just-got-it-right chillness of the breeze.

I look around in haste....
to check if anyone noticed my impromptu giggle.... and the sway to a tune in my mind.

I soo love the Spirit! yes, the extra snooze time is the best sleep you can get.. Absolutely taken by the rain, dripping umbrellas.. Alas, no puddles or buses :( I would much rather prefer those than zipping cars(good for environment too!) And I had a Pizza today =p
