A random, everyday drive. Nothing special. Nine o’clock in the morning. On my way to the post office as I do every Thursday or so since lockdown to pick up the company mail before making my way to the office. Only this morning, as I left the house CBC Music was playing a version of Debussy’s Claire de Lune by Janina Fialkowska. So gorgeous.
As I drove down the street that runs along City Hall Park, I could see the two huge weeping willows (not mine that I am forever claiming) waving in the wind. They seemed to sway in time with the music – the point in the music, about two or so minutes into it. Perfection. I had this feeling of peace settle over me in the most beautiful way.
I continued onto the post office but this music and that image were still with me, so before making my way to the office, I just had to stop at this park and walk along the path that winds through it,
then across the newly fallen snow so I could get the proper angle of one of the trees, still blowing in the chill morning air.
It truly is all about the simple things in life, isn’t it?
