A Splendid Sunday


We had a splendid Sunday.

In case you're wondering...

Nope, we were not shopping at the biggest mall in the city.

We didn't lunch at the longest buffet in town.

Nor were we checking out the latest car model at the showroom.

Heck, we were not even at the newest megastore.

Or trying to grab tickets to watch Crazy Horse.

We spent the breezy Sunday afternoon sitting by the reservoir.

We watched the gentle ripples on the surface of the water.

We listened to the sounds of leaves rustling in the wind.

We watched white fluffy clouds move across the sky.

We felt the warmth of the sun on our skin and the cool wind in our face.

We heard the joyful sounds of kids playing in the far distance.

We were mesmerised by the melodic sounds of birds chirping.

We did not travel the distance to enjoy the serenity.

Just a nice tranquil afternoon at the park nearby.

No planes to board.

No need to squeeze through throngs of people.

Nor fight for parking space.

No need to wait in line for food or taxi or payment.

You should try it sometime too.
