A Morning Of Walks, Kites, And A Seagull Kiss
Never one to ignore my own advise,(insert laughter here) I was diligently following my “path” as it appeared beneath my feet while walking the boxer-shark puppy yesterday.
One foot in front of the other, that’s it.
Look at the beautiful day, smell the fog in the air, be present,open your eyes, pay attention…oh what’s that?
We had vaulted past a Post It with bright orange writing that was laying in the wet grass.
Let’s be honest here, we zoomed past it because the puppy was walking me – ugh, work in progress, Work. In. Progress.(Said with a tightly clenched jaw.)
Something in my head said Go back, it has something to say to you.
Yeah, sure it does. Eggs, milk, cheese, coffee.
But I’m nothing if not obedient to these little “hits” I get, so I swung the puppy around like ball of legs and teeth on a string, and went to retrieve the soaking wet note, eager to garner its wisdom.
That’s the picture I took before picking it up.
Kites are overrated, if you fly them too high a bird might think it is a (colored) seagull, and try to kiss it.
I’m not sure what I was expecting, but a cryptic teenage haiku was pretty far down on the list.
I shoved the note into my pocket and laughed all the way home.
I love when something surprises me and makes me laugh. Especially in the morning. It’s hard to find anything funny before 9 a.m.
Musings of a tweenage girl…
I’m not sure I agree because as you can see below, I enjoy a good kite flight.
But the idea of a seagull kiss, well, what overrated kite doesn’t want one of those!
Keep your eyes and minds open my peeps, our paths can be very entertaining.
Happy day y’all!
That’s me flying a kite last spring. Just because.
