traveling, interlude

 on my way to melbourne
but the plane had already left before i got there
here
 so i had a day to pass in an hotel
with a courtyard
 so after a long sleep,
a late breakfast,
i spent a couple of hours
in the courtyard.
 strange seed pods in the trees
 and this delightful fountain
 all a facade, but i really enjoyed it.
 these are from the book i'm relishing
a different kind of luxury
japanese lessons in simple living and inner abundance
by andy couturier
that jean blogged about.
a fine book.

AGH. getting stuck midway is a pain. but in some ways, maybe it's good to have a bit of a break b/c it's such a long journey!! thinking of you.

Velma said...

aimee, it's been just fine. and i found out that i have a day of grace!

I hope your arms don't get too tired on the big flight over the very big pond....

ronnie, i had a day's grace and my muscles are ready! i did loose a few feathers in the storms in calgary--

I saw the palm trees and thought - that's not very Melbourne! Hope the stay refreshed you before you began the next leg...be warned it's winter here!
