Simple Pleasures

It's the simple things in life that are often the best.  One such simple pleasure for me is the twice weekly drive to work.

It's early morning, the car starts and the iPhone gets plugged in.  The music begins and the volume gets cranked up high.  It's a mere 15 minutes drive but it's one of my favourite parts of my week.

A few minutes in to my drive, I round a corner and view Sydney in all her glory - harbour, bridge and city skyline.  All so stunning at this time of day.  

I take joy in driving over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and often recall the time that we got the opportunity to be pedestrians once and walk it's length.

As I come to the end of the bridge, I round another corner and see such beauty.  The sun rising over the Opera House, ferries below and water glistening.

For the next few minutes I continue singing loudly and grooving away to the music and before I know it I'm at work.  All goes silent as the music is unplugged and the car engine is turned off.

And off I toddle to work.

  1. You're lucky to have such a beautiful view on your way to work. It's often too easy to focus on the traffic or the destination; it's good to stop and remember to enjoy the journey.
