walk the walk

Posted on Updated on

It appears I am slowly getting my life back… and just this week this have recommenced “greeting the sun” as part of my action packed morning routine. My walk takes me around Sydney Park at St Peters (Sydney, NSW, Australia), a block over from our apartment, and so close to Sydney CBD you can see Sydney Tower from the far end. The early morning people & their dogs are varied and interesting (& at times annoying: take note dog owners who thinks it’s fun to let your dogs chase the water birds), and the water birds: pea fowl; ducks; moorhens; and my favourite, pelicans remind me that the world, even early in the morning with the whole day and goodnessknowswhat it might entail ahead of you, is a great place to be.

On the first morning, I saw one pelican, yesterday none, and today four (only two posed for the photo). I’ve decided to coin yet another form of prophecy to add to my repertoire (if you really want to know more go to https://elladeewords.wordpress.com) to rate my expectation for the day accordingly, and my four pelican rating has today proved itself pretty fair.

And, I remembered The Pelican Poem…
A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I’m damned if I see how the helican.

    That’s lovely. We never went there 😦 But we did live pretty near to the Botanical Gardens and my partner used to walk/jog through those every day on his way to work. It’s wonderful having such expanses of green space so near to the city.

    Thnx for the comment. If you visit Sydney in the future put the inner west, ie Newtown & surrounds on the list. I also love the Botancial Gardens & as I work near there seek lunch hour refuge from time to time but it’s so hard to go back to my desk. Not to mention I lived in a Sydney CBD hotel room week days for 16 months working on a project, and the BG saved my sanity.
