Special places and patterns can be very delightful.
In our holiday in South Africa – patio by Ivory Tree Game Lodge and peaceful place by swimming pool at Kristiina’s house offered special places for morning yoga.
The special places can be every where, but do we recognize them, do we take time to enjoy them and do we remember them ?
In Kristiina’s garden I spotted heart shaped “for-get-me-nots”, like the one I found last summer in our backyard. Little special patterns can also be all around us, but do we perceive them, do we stop to enjoy the beauty – are we able to remember our past experiences.
Contradictions of summer and winter strengthen experiences – opposites of cold and warm, light and darkness. Lately we have been enjoying snow and winter, skiing, skating, making snowmen, long walks by the sea around the nearby islands.
Each season has their own specialties – places and patterns.
Appreciating and enjoying them enriches life.
Things have been a bit hectic lately – taking time to stop and think, percieve and feel, stopping for an experience, delightful sight, sound or smell is fundamentally essential for enjoable life and learning.
