People watching and eating chocolate….in Sydney

Cafe viewing...

How do you feel about people watching? I could sit and watch in earnest quite happily. Yesterday I watched the comings and goings of a local neighbourhood in Sydney while having breakfast in a cafe. Young people drifted by…doing that carefree thing that they do so well. It felt like a scene from a movie, one that I was only to happy to linger on...long after the ending.

It was a welcome break from a busy week. We landed in Sydney on Tuesday and hit the ground running. Connor is currently tucked away in boarding school, the beginning of a new experience for him and I admit I have counted the days and hours ever since. My daughter Christine reminded me that I needed to let go…as I followed her aimlessly from one shop to another. Mother and daughter have been on a mission to build a "working wardrobe" for Christine's first job in the corporate world next week. It's been a journey…

As for me, I am taking myself off to a health retreat for a few days. I am in search of a "mind-fix"…one that will help me find my center again and keep me away from chocolate. I am feeling like the Henry Moore sculpture I came across yesterday at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney. I aim to find myself a little space within the Australian Hinterlands and commune with nature…and most likely.. still think about chocolate.
