Weekend wake me up…

When on holidays, the exotic exists alongside everyday life. It’s a matter of what we see.

Wake me up to eat 3

To mindful souls, like my Tai Chi teacher, life is a series of special moments. One day in class, completely out of the blue, he said that he had woken up that morning feeling grateful to be able to open his eyes to see. He said it with such simplicity that I understood something at some deeper level, though I’m not exactly sure what.

Often since that moment I have realised how much I take for granted. I find myself being grateful for small things, noticing and appreciating more.

It was these eye shades on the Etihad flight from Sydney to Casa Blanca that gave me the idea for a series of holiday photos with the theme “Wake me up…” I’m re- blogging them, along with and other posts from a wonderful trip to Morocco. Never before has there been a better time for virtual tourism.
