And Melbourne sparkles.
Neighbours appear with the sun,
Children ride their bikes,
Lawnmowers come out of the shed,
Bicycles appear – not just the lycra clad; no weather a problem riders, but the mom and pop kind of cyclists, with kids in tow.
All a little wobbly as they navigate the muddy bits and find their summer muscles.
Perhaps, precisely because weather is such a topic of conversation and variation,
Days like today are so so special.
Anyone who has lived here for more than a month knows that there is no telling…..
So the sun is out,
It is a Sunday – skip the ironing, the chores, the cooking –
Go out and smell the roses,
Explore the park,
Smile at the stranger –
It is good to be alive…..
