My neighborhood has a pond outside the clubhouse but I never noticed these koi until recently. I did see frogs, not fish. Maybe I was merely looking, not observing, not realizing what is there in front of me, not appreciating.
Note to self: stop and smell the flowers. Stop and watch the koi. Remember what the sign at the corner driveway said: Slow Down. I know it was meant as a warning to drivers but it can very well apply to me.
I am busy most of the time: at work, at school, at home. I have a neverending to-do list and somehow I keep adding more things to do.
