Sabbatical Bliss September 21, 2011

vanarsdel8Happily, we go
nowhere and do nothing that
matters in the least

Palm fronds sway, stirred by
the slightest breeze, as we plant
our feet in the sand

A day of no note,
no remembrance, no rhyme ~ the
moments slip away

Pelicans convene,
a circle of contentment,
amid fishing lures

Gentle giants float
past the wooden fishing pier
searching for a snack

Delight filled dolphins
Dive beneath the currents and
Leap high o’er the waves

A tropical cruise
beside coastal cays reminds
me that I am home

Flowing through the day
No reason to watch the clock
Sabbatical Bliss

Aah . . . that’s better!

Oh…. that’s nice…
sounds so relaxing!

Even ten minute mini-sabbaticals are conducive to our physical, intellectual, emotional, and psychological well-being. 😎

Sounds heavenly. . . ahhhhhhh

We all need those days when we can leave our wristwatches on the nightstand and flow through the hours in a state of Sabbatical Bliss.

Yes indeed that is very relaxing.

For you, perhaps an arts and crafts session with your grandson . . . with no time commitments at the other end.

Aah . . .

I love the ‘parrots’ such wonderful beautiful colours.. and I envy you your vacation.
Here is BG it is getting to the end of summer and it is getting nippy, so would you like to swop?

love P

Nope. But thanks for asking. 😀

Until we moved to Florida, autumn always arrived all too soon ~ I was never ready to pack away my shorts and flip flops. Now, summer lasts for 6 months of the year and the other seasons have to complete for the remaining 6. A much better balance for me.

Sounds lovely!

It is. So much wildlife to watch . . . along with undulating waves.

I feel like I am finally “home.” 😎
