A Perfect Spring Day (for an introvert)

Strolling in a light sweater and jeans to the tax preparer’s office

Sipping a heart-swirled latte over Arabic grammar exercises, in the sunlight of a cafe terrace, while two dogs whose owner is asleep inch their noses to the muffin crumbs left on the ground

A phone call to grandparents on skype while clean winter scarves flutter dry in the breeze, waiting to be folded and stored until next winter

A fresh, toasted bagel with capers embedded in cream cheese, pink smoked salmon, a few pinches of black pepper and a squeeze of lemon

A mid-afternoon jog in the park across the street, admiring the colors and the green (the green! how come I never noticed how many colors are in green?) and the DC monuments on the horizon, just over the river

As much as I love to travel, sometimes, it’s nice to be home.

    Reblogged this on The healthiest beauty.

  2. The only problem was the black pepper amount units. Were it millimeters… and would still be too much.

  3. pinches are too much, you think? I was going for some slight alliteration there… licencia poetica 🙂
