It is that quiet half an hour after school drop off. Just me in the house and the sound of birds chirping in the Phoenix Palm next door. Bliss. I saw a house for sale close to my favourite beach about 15 minutes from here. Even the street name sounds lovely; Otitori Bay……Just for a moment, I allowed myself to dream about the what ifs….What if I could afford it….Very unlikely given it’s council valuation which is three years old is nearly twice as much as my house…But for those few brief moments, it was wonderful to picture myself in that house. I had given up dreaming and hoping somewhere along the way…Maybe it is time to allow myself to dream. Not that I am giving up my intent to live in the present moment, but to look in my heart and find things that resonate with my core…And living near the sea has always been one of those dreams….
