Week 35 – Thankful Tuesdays
Calmness is useful when you’re a poet. It helps to think, and sometimes even to hear thoughts. I’m thankful to be living in a residential area of the city where there’s not much hullaballoo from the traffic or noisy neighbors who make a commotion for little things. The area is quite serene too; there are some trees, and houses with gardens and the occasional lovable stray dog. (It’s not that there’s a lack of stray dogs, it’s only the lovable strays that are occasional.) My neighbor has two adorable girls who adore me and come to talk to me often. Children bring back the smile so easily when I’m feeling down, and they know how to. They don’t leave me alone, and keep talking about their day, what they did in school and such. I’m quite blessed to have moved to such a neighborhood I think, and I’m happy to be there.
