Around my building there are many Frangipani trees and it's quite common to find the flowers just lying on the ground. I like to pick them up and put them in a bowl with water. Usually I place the bowl on the kitchen sink and it stays there for many days. It's so simple and so beautiful at the same time.
Occasionally I will pick up the bowl and take a sniff inhaling all that sweet fragrance. And then, when I close my eyes, I remember Bali and Lombok, swimming in the sea, drinking coconut water and just being carefree.
It's funny how something so small and overlooked by so many people can have this effect on me. I guess everyone must have their own triggers that take them to a place of serenity. I'd like to hear what is yours.
Have a wonderful weekend!
