     When I was a child, my  grandmother used to sit on an old dusty bench in our garden every day  all day (she was 80 something) .. she could sit there for hours and hours, staring at (in my eyes then) the Nothing… I was thinking: What is she looking at, why is she enjoying so much just sitting on this old bench, staring at the space and the plants, yet nothing has changed from the previous days, it is all the time, all the same, anything new, nor  exciting.”…

     Now, as i grew older, I am able to “see”it too… I also  find  joy in the simple life, that surrounds me,   just being out , staring at the grass , the plants , the bees and the pretty butterflies-  beautiful little heavens of color-  flying after each other in a circus movements, flirting in a beautiful dance, spinning and flitting with their colorful feeric wings, appreciating the moment, not worried about Before or After ,  just living the “now” ,  just “be”... I love to stare at the cats, happily lying in the burning sun, half in the sunshine, half in the shade, half sleeping, half awake, enjoying the beauty of a raw life, appreciating the moment , moving their ears from time to time sharply, tickled by the flys, yet not annoyed at all .I feel so full of happiness, just staring at this intense life, which once I was feeling is boring and which existence I was even unable to see ...

      Now I like to listen to the  songs of the trees, the leaves , dancing with the wind, the bright green color of the new leaves, the dark green older ones and the little yellow- brown sunburned sides, so charming and sweet, softly whispering, shaken by the gentle wind, the birds flying around, singing and playing, searching for food, coincidently left by some humans.. Now I understand… It is  the  joy of a simple happiness. 

      Now I can see happiness through  my grandma´s eyes…

      Simplify your life, appreciate the small things  and bring kindness to the world
