on foot in taipei city.
this past sunday, a few frnds n i went to baishawan for some beach fun, but this is a very managed beach... lots of ppl stuck inside the "fenced in" area of the beach. u'r not allowed to pass it or swim outsides this managed borders. the water was warm n nice. beautiful weather, lots of ppl... but nowhere to swim! still, we got some sun and beautiful sunset w/live music at La Mer nearby. and, the special margarita was amazing, hit just the right spot, perfect end to a sunday!
yesterday, after yoga, i saw this birdnest under the overhang of a commercial sidewalk. stood ther n watch how the mother bird came n went, feeding her baby birds. all these ppl walking under, busy in their own thoughts. or r they just so immune to all these happening around them tht it's no longer a surprise? still, i am awed by how nature always finds a way to fit itself into our man-made world, yet we'r so distanced from it all in the present world.
today, i'm walking towards yoga class and chanced by this coffee street vendor. this is prob the smallest vendor out ther on the streets i ever seen! i mean, it's basically made from a motorized wheel chair-like thing! wow. amazing, this will fit anywhere! i wanted to buy a coffee just for tht, but the owner was nowhere to b found, prob hiding somewhere away from this heat n sharp rays of the sun! too hot for coffee anyhow.
today, is "take care of sophie" day, after yoga, i met up w/an old frnd whom i've not seen in ages and had a pedicure while we caught up w/ea other's lives. very nice. my toes r finally back on track in their usual summer color of blues!
