amaryllis

I got this flower about a year ago. Actually there were just a few green leaves. It suddenly started to bloom.

not always able to but trying to think positive

yesterday I went out, running. Nice weather, first warm day since I don´t know when. My husband and child went to a model railroad exhibition, so they were taken care of... My intention was to go for a long run. I didn´t even forget to put on my sunglases. After getting started I realised within a short time, something was wrong. My feet were heavy like if they had been coated with lead. I heard myself step on the asphalt like an elephant. Why am I doing this, I asked a tree nearby after managing the first two kilometers. Not every day is the same, of course, but today was the worst. Sometimes it gets better after a while, body has to get the right temperature. But not today. Running a while longer I started to feel real compassion for me. The nordic walkers, I was hardly able to catch up with, felt the same, I know it. Feeling sorry for myself for quite a while I reached the point of return. There was a bench on the edge of the little forest I surrounded. I swear, I never sat on it before. But this morning it had a sign on it that said in big letters: PLEASE, sit down on me for a minute Susi and enjoy the wonderful view I am able to provide you. So this is what I did. 5 minutes later I got up and ran home.
Sitting in the sun was great and next time running will be much better, that´s for sure, it can´t be worse.

linger

one thing I`m really fond of. Such a beauty, like if you were created by nature. Almost too nice to destroy. Too bad your time will be over soon...
Oops, your life has been taken already. Such a short amount of time you were able to linger on this planet. But no matter what, enough time to save a life...

haircut

What is it that helps you really quick if you don´t feel so happy at the moment because of no special reason? Yes, get a new haircut. So did I today, nice and short it is now, much better to handle after swimming and running. But what is that? More white it gets everytime I visit that lady? Is it her fault? Why do have haircutters always have this long and beautyful hair? There is no doubt it takes her hours to get it in shape like this every day.
Might be the same amount of time it takes me to run and take a shower afterwords... I will again dye my hair and feel another 5 years younger then.
