five senses on a Saturday

Overheard yesterday (a thirty-something woman talking on her mobile phone):
"Well, I knew this when I married him seven years ago!"

Spotted yesterday - a tiny tot down by the sea, skin brown as a berry, her hair the whitest platinum blond, wearing sequinned gold shoes.

Smelt yesterday - the briny sea air, blowing clean and cool in the late afternoon, despite the heat.

Tasted yesterday.... fresh crumbed fish and fat potato chips.

Touched yesterday - Fatty's warm hand in mine, as we walked out on the jetty, children charging ahead.

I like those, Jelly. Too often we don't take time to actually think about what our senses are taking in, but what a surprise when we do.

Hi Jelly,
Just watched the 10 p.m. tv news (2/8/09)here and saw reports on floods and fires Down Under.
Hope you and yours are ok.
Thinking good thoughts for you.
John

Hi John, thank you so much for caring and for writing to me. Here where I live we are unaffected by the floods and fires, but I am feeling sick to my stomach at the footage of teary firefighters and bereft families. It has warmed my heart to hear from you, so thank you again.
Fondly,
Jelly

I do so love that you and your husband were walking along hand-in-hand while the children tore ahead of you. Moments like that are the richness and beauty of family life.
