I went for a walk. Turned my back on work emails, left a mountain of laundry waiting to be folded and just put on my earphones and headed out into the sunshine. This is how it went:
an apricot tree in full bloom with bright pink blossoms
when a wave crashes, the white foam arcs out from the original crash point
pelicans frantically crashing into the water to take advantage of a bait ball
the first freesia of the season, golden yellow and smelling so sweet
the first wisteria of the season cascading right over the sidewalk
I began to feel better and then...the elderly man on the corner with the Chihuahuas had set out his wooden box of lemons free to passers by and I realize:
When life give you lemons....
