Slow down.....


how many days, months and years have gone by.... the podium of our building which we must walk through to work, to play, to eat, to shop, etc every day... never have we stopped and looked around to see what else is on the podium. last sunday, as we were waiting for the car pick-up, we thought we got nothing else better to do and therefore started walking around the podium... there is a little garden... a little pond... flowers... and to my surprise, there are trees that grow "egg-white" flowers (don't know what it is called in english)... a couple of them has fallen onto the ground... picked up one... if it wasn't that we were about to go out for dinner, i would have taken it home....  during the car ride, i was thinking... we ought to slow down every now and then... to look at things from a different angle, to breathe the atmosphere, to feel the ambience, to appreciate things around us...  sometimes simple things are enough to make us feel contented.
