Have you ever taken a sensory walk, noticing what you really see, smell, hear and can touch?
My eyes were drawn towards this emerald green dragonfly
which I luckily managed to capture with my compact point and shoot camera
when out in the country doing pole walking!
The lush green pastures and the deep green pine trees
If you close your eyes, you can actually smell
the beauty of this summer's day.
A woodpile full of curving shapes with many textures of moss and wood
and a perfume of resin.
Closer to home on a neighbourhood walk, soft dandelion clocks prepare
to send their seeds in the air at the next gust of wind.
In my balcony garden a bee lies across my zinnia flowers
to gather pollen.
Can you hear him buzz as he goes from one flower to another?
What I'm reading now: the biography of Alice Herz-Sommer.
A Century of Wisdom, is a testament to the bonds of friendship,
the power of music and the importance of leading a life of material simplicity,
intellectual curiosity, and never-ending optimism.

A breakfast smoothie.
Now this is a real taste of summer!
I decided to buy a blender in July
and have been making health promoting smoothies ever since.
If you're a smoothie fan, maybe you'd like to try the one above:
2 apricots, a few strawberries, some blueberries
1/2 cup of pineapple juice
1 soy yoghurt
4 fresh mint leaves.
Blend on a 'pulse' setting and drink without delay!
Makes 2 glasses.
Try it and let me know what you think!
What are you reading this summer?
