She sat by the shore watching the sailboats and listening to the sounds of nature. So many decisions to make and each impacted on people she loved. Her mind echoed should and should not`s so loud that she finally took a few deep breaths and slowly turned to her breath.

“My oh my, how time flies by these days”, she thought walking slowly from the store with her recycled bags in each hand. She missed the sun set and the multicolours reflecting on the water and now it had dipped below the horizon rising on another part of the world.

It was difficult to do justice to such splendour.

Suddenly, temperatures rise to unseasonal heights with warmer days, oh! so short-lived, teasing all things living.
