On A Clear Day

I didn't get to play on the beach today, like I had intended to, as soon as I stepped out on to my Tung Chung flat balcony, when I woke up this morning. But that didn't stop me from enjoying the calming presence of the sun, the invigoratingly crisp and cool spring air, and the smile-inducing clearness of the day. This doesn't happen 365 times a year. I am grateful that one of the few times it did, is on my day off.

Oh! And the birds are chirping too, singing along to Babs...

On a clear day
Rise and look around you
And you'll see who you are
On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being
Outshines every star
You'll feel part of
Every mountain, sea and shore,
You can hear from far and near
A world you've never never heard before

And on a clear day
On a clear day
You can see forever and ever and ever and ever more.

Welcome, spring! Thank you for coming. Thank you for coming today.
