Carpe diem

Carpe diem...

I am sitting on the train towards home after a heart warming weekend in the little town of Schaffhausen.A very spontaneous idea made me book a hotel in the old town and spend two nights there instead of just going to and from the birthday party on Saturday evening. Yes.This was because of you, showed me that spontanity is a gift....a way to treat yourself to a better life. To have a glass of rosé on a terrace overlooking the Rhine instead of doing the vaccuming at home? To see your friend in Schaffhausen three times instead of only on Saturday evening? To have coffee on the street of the old town on Sunday morning and feel like on a three week holiday? To completey forget about all the work at home because everything around you is interesting and new?
You were a star at living in the moment and I am endlessly grateful to have been your pupil!
