In the grand scheme of things, I'd probably consider making onigiri a waste of time. But sometimes, I think we really do need time to waste on the small things (is it really time wasted after all?). It can be too easy to get caught up in the big things

To deal with winter, I've been finding it easier to go to bed a little earlier and then wake up around 6am (as opposed to staying up late and sleeping late). I've tried often to wake up that early for a less rushed start to the day & almost always failed over the years. Let's hope this habit sticks for a while

Heuston Station at sunrise. It's it funny how straight lines are such a human-made thing? We seem to be obsessed with them

Lions Head Mountain Capetown
I found this quote the other day & thought it was a good one: Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” - Rumi

I tried to identify this pretty flower, but the closest I could get was to some kind of gladioli. See the little heart shape inside the petals?

Did you know that wearing shoes can change the shape of your feet over time and also the way you walk /your gait? I'm going to try walking around barefoot more often back in Ireland (but not in the city, because human-made surfaces hurt my feet)

Check on this little praying mantis  I found him on a path and helped him across. I love the weird way they move. I spotted a white praying mantis in Nelspruit, has anyone ever seen one of those? Apparently, they're white right after moulting and then slowly darken

Kirstenbosch is one of my most favourite Cape Town locations  It's filled with so many interesting things, like medicinal plants, smelly plants, lots of fynbos, badly behaved guinea fowls, baby Egyptian geese, secluded shady spots and best of all: lush mountain views ️

A not-so-summery adventure above Chapman's Peak. It was properly windy up there & I lost my hat  (but luckily I didn't blow away). It anyone finds it, it was a good a hat 🧢

Nursery Ravine
Easy pose is not so easy for some people, physically, mentally & emotionally. We've trained ourselves to be constantly busy, running errands, talking, shopping, working (often with lots of chair-sitting that tightens us up), lots of doing. We hardly take the time out to sit quietly, to observe being. Rather than trying to do more, set aside time to do less ⏳ credit @gabi.labuschagne
