It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens
The sun shines warm and bright, the sky is blue and clear, the sparrows twitter as they fly around, the pigeons around my window sill coo as they walk past, the sounds of singing birds and rustling leaves is delightful to my senses.
Days are pleasantly warm and nice and evening breeze is cool. April is almost here, and it would be good to spend more time outdoors before it gets unbearable, as the summer is almost round the corner and seems to be in a hurry to arrive.
Before I give more attention to the latter part of my above statement, I’ll try and concentrate on the present, and enjoy it. I love these visits to the beaches, to the parks, to watch the butterflies flittering from flower to flower, the sun rays through trees, the sights of flowers blooming, bees humming, birds singing, and the migratory birds still lingering around the sea shores. I get much happiness in exploring the desert showing signs of green life with patches of colors of pink, yellow and white blooms.
Fugue should see a resuming of my writings on travels to Madhya Pradesh that is somehow going at a snail’s pace, and I shall try to post more often in future.
My last month's visit to the Kumaon region of Uttarkhand of India was the 20th state and union territories that I covered. This summer, I intend to explore the rest of the State around the Garhwal parts of the Himalayan region.
On the other hand, besides India and Kuwait - two countries where I have spent a major part of my life - with this visit to Jordan (a second proper visit as the previous one was during the evacuation time just prior to the Gulf War I when I passed through it hurriedly), I have now visited 16 other countries. No, I will not bore you with the list but because of requests from a few friends, I wish to write about them (if and when time permits) on a separate blog or at least post some pictures of those places though some of them before I had a digicam will need to be scanned and then posted.
To get back again to one of my favourite topics, i.e., nature, we live in a world of wonders, and it is manifested as we watch nature unfold before us during each season, isn’t it? It’s such a privilege to be alive and to be a witness to those changing seasons!
Thank you for visiting Fugue and leaving words of encouragement. Indicaspecies appreciates your comments. Let’s spring in the air in celebration at the onset of this spring.
