I’m sure that most people I have the pleasure of being acquainted with would agree that I talk rather a lot – and like to talk. But sometimes there are moments when I find myself without words to express what I’m feeling, what I want to say – maybe because the sensation is unfamiliar, or difficult to describe, or maybe there is actually no need to say anything. So I just enjoy the moment. Looking calm and composed – or more often than not with a huge smile on my face.
As the weekend comes to a close I can’t help calling the past two days pretty much perfect, no matter how cheesy that sounds. I consider myself lucky to have experienced an amazing two-day excursion with the ornithological group of my university and have learned so much, seen so much and met so many friendly people…fue genial!
What a privilege to spend hours outside marvelling at God’s beautiful creation; to walk with people that have such a vast knowledge of the flora and fauna we encounter and are more than willing to share that knowledge with us; to sense that freedom of being out in the middle of nowhere with trees, mountains, valleys and to give yourself some space to breathe, to clear your head. And of course – what a privilege to get to know other nature-enthusiasts – to walk, chat, laugh, bird-watch together – thanks for a wonderful time! I wont forget it =)
