As I was walking with Peach this morning I was actually thinking of different things I might like to blog about in the future.  So naturally I thought about all of things I had already blogged about.  Blogs are their own little timelines in a person or company's life.  Turns out I didn't really come up with anything very interesting.  I have found that when I am engaged in an activity outside (and by myself), I am much more tuned in to what I am doing and what's going on around me.  So, once I stopped thinking about what I might blog about I started tuning in to the sounds around me.  

At that point I was near a house that was being worked on, so there were sounds of construction...hammering, boards clanking against each other and workers discussing the task at hand.  I said good morning to a couple of them as I passed by.  People tend to be very friendly around here.Then I noticed the sound of the breeze rushing through the trees and the birds chirping.  For a moment I felt like Snow White or Sleeping Beauty walking through nature, except that I was wearing jeans and t-shirt and walking a dog, while my surrounding were not at all cartoon-like.  But the sounds were amazing.  These are sounds I wake up to everyday and it still surprises me that I get to wake up to them everyday.  Just down the lane I ended up walking by a house where someone was warming up to practice the piano.  On my way back the person was playing a song and tripped on a note, but nonetheless it sounded wonderful. For a moment I wondered what it would be like to be in that person's shoes, playing the piano with the windows open and looking out onto the Bay.  

To sound completely cliche and to quote a completely over-quoted, yet absolutely perfect quote from Ferris Bueller's Day Off - "Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it."

Song of the moment: Forsaken Cowboy, Royksopp
