Come, sit by me.
Gaze into the distance. What do you see? A family….. children and dogs – running, chasing; adults talking, meandering? A woman, alone, the dog trotting along beside her? Is your sky blue or grey? Do you see the trees peppered with bright green buds about to burst; are they clothed in a rich green robe, or stark and bare like a skeleton?
Close your eyes for a while. Do you feel the warmth of the sun on your face, or the biting wind stinging your cheeks?
Listen. What do you hear? Is it the music of the birds singing in the branches? Or the dogs yapping; children squealing? The distant roar of traffic calling you back? The wind rustling through the trees perhaps?
