I have decided that the hammock I bought at the fair is a good investment.
It is so easy to get caught up in things I think I should do. Yesterday I spent most of the afternoon in my new hammock reading a book. OK, so it was a photography book to learn some software I have but still, I was sitting still and reading a book. What a pleasure!
While I was there I also watched the hummingbirds. At times there was quite an impressive number of them all circling around the feeder!
I felt the breeze blow, listened to the birds, watched some new birds soaring overhead, and felt more relaxed and mellow than I have felt in a long time. I need to plan some hammock time every day. It’s such a pleasure and eventually I might even make it through my pile of books. The rainy season should be coming soon and this looks like the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon. I think the Panamanians definitely have the right idea when it comes to making time to relax and enjoy life.
