Yesterday fell away

I went for a nice walk but did not write a blog post. I guess I could have then and reflected on things I saw. It just seemed like I could just go. And go. Now I sit with coffee and like many times I remember the walk. Yesterday seemed like the walking was effortless but I also remember the weather seemed to be changing. Moving to cooler days. I checked my weather app on the iPhone and sure enough we have cooler days starting today. I was so taken with the beautiful clouds and how the sun seemed to just touch and go through the late afternoon.

I had stopped yesterday and got a cheap sandwich and yoghurt for dinner and had an apple too and then a few beers and sat outside. Then back inside and I listened to an audiobook on YouTube. I get a lot of pleasure out of audio books especially for some reason Sherlock Holmes books. There are collections of Conan Doyle’s stories of Holmes which go for hours. Sometimes I just let them go and tune in and out. I also have this app which works well for public domain audio books called Librivox. It has a small annual subscription but there are thousands of books. Some really good, others I skip over. It seems easier sometimes to find audiobooks on YouTube so I listen there in the evenings.

Now the morning room coffee hints at nothing except most likely I will go later today to a new place to wander in the city. I’ll catch a ride with DiDi which competes with Uber and perhaps costs less. It just seems time to find a new place for the day to wander and perhaps have dinner and then head back home. Now though my room coffee demands attention. I finished the banana and a cookie with it already and the coffee always seems to gently ask my attention.

I may go for a late breakfast and have some eggs with verdes sauce on them or perhaps something else there. I also have to go meet my friend here that owns a laundry service that I managed to meet. She and I will make plans to have coffee one day here when she can.

And that is how yesterday fell away and today took the place of it. I lose track most often of all the todays and yesterdays. Clocks and calendars. They mean nothing when you have Merida on a Monday morning. Room coffee and moments. Some music that carries me along.

I am supposed to consider going back to Cambodia in September but it seems so far away. I don’t really know it will happen but it does not touch now and just the gentle act of being now.

Take the clouds and the sun.

Up next Sunday Morning Merida shines this morning. Cool breezes and the sun always gives a new day this time of year. Sometimes we get some rain here but it never lasts Little Walking and Little Sights
