When you feel weary



It was a busy day! I don't like Tuesday next to Monday. For one thing, my brain doesn't switch to a working mode and for another the schedule is often tight at the beginning of the week.

Yesterday I had the two meetings to attend and I feel quite exhausted when I got free from them. Whew, the last one was quite tough. Usually after the meeting, I had a chat with my friends but yesterday I just had too much for the day. I'd rather be alone. I got down to the first floor and went outside to walk across the park to get to the subway entrance. When I hurried across the park, I heard the water murmuring. Such a comfortable sound of water. I looked for the sound, where I found the waterfall in the corner of the pond.

I felt comfortable just listening to the sound of water and gazed for a while at many small streams running down the rocks and pouring into to the pond. That played nice music consisted with several different codes. I felt my heart entwined with stress gradually being released. Natural power!
What was your unforgettable view that rested your weary heart?

Wow, you both are so quick to get the news! In fact I learned of earthquake from a Noon news program on TV! Thanks for your concern. It was way up in northern part of Japan and I didn't feel any jerk here. Darn earthquake! We can't get rid of it. Hope it didn't bring much damage up there.

We have a nice fall in my pre. to soothe the weary feeling. But a bit far for the frequent visit.

I love the sound of water. It's so peaceful and natural, and back-to-basics. When everything else seems to chaotic and cluttered, water is so refreshing, simple and natural.
