Enjoying the Calm

Our dear friend and neighbour who is 86 years young often sits on our front porch and watches for whales and boats. Yesterday I brought him out a bowl of watermelon and asked how he was getting on..."Like the biscuit!" he replied and then gave me some lovely advice.
I had been inside working most of the day, worrying about orders, projects and phone calls and hadn't stopped for love or money.
He pointed out to sea and told me I should take my time and "enjoy the calm". I looked around and it WAS calm.....the wind, the sea, the gulls. Everything was taking a breath....and thanks to a good friend, so did I.
