...What would YOU do with all of YOUR time??

Wed. Morning was rainy, but our Angel Trumpet plant still had a blossom, so I took that as a sign that it MUST be a 'DayTrippin' Day!
Met up with my partner in crime...
and we were off!
 
Destination:
 For a morning of wandering around the gardens,

 and daydreaming on what life was like before...
Electronics and computer and cellphone,
TV, Facebook and Blogs...
even grocery stores.
AND with a WHOLE staff of servants...
 
WHAT DID THEY DO WITH THEMSELVES??????
 
 ...enjoy the ever changing beauty of the gardens from day to day,  season to season?
 ...set up their easel and paint to their hearts content?
 

...find quiet places to meditate, write poems or love letters?
...find secluded spots to read inspiring works by Longfellow and Kafka?
 


Just walking these grounds I was transformed for a short while.  Maybe, just maybe, this is why I have such a preference for 'stuff that has lived a life prior to me'.  It has soul.  It can speak to us in a way 'new off the shelf' never can. 
 
*** ps.  I keep forgetting to update you on my latest (well, about a month ago...) ~
