It has been some time since I have posted here but I am back. Hurrah!
I was daydreaming today (imagine!) at my new desk, which is under a large window overlooking a couple of plum trees in full bloom, sipping tea. My thoughts wondered to a place far away where the warm breeze rustles the palms and the sea gently laps the white sands. It's funny really how cliched that is, yet so irresistible. I looked through some of my recent additions to my photo collection and found this lucky fellow:
Yes, that is where I want to be! What, standing on a palm tree in madras on an Hawaiian beach in the 1940s? Why, sure!
I won't be going back in time, not this week anyway, but I will be looking for a short sleeved madras shirt for summer and maybe some crystal framed sunglasses. I'll be there in spirit, at least!
As I continued to sip my tea, I realised that even my mug was telling me to find Bali Hai. This was a gift from my best friend and it comes from an etsy seller, YogaGoat in the US:
My reverie complete, I got back down to work. And, I'm sure I could smell gardenias.
