That morning I woke up feeling refreshed. I stretched and smiled to myself. I was not sleeping in my own bed. I was staying in a bungalow somewhere in Malaysia. One step to my right is the sliding door that opens to the balcony looking out into the open sea.
The sky outside was grey. Rain was forecasted that day. I was not planning on doing many things. However I was keen to explore the resort and the surrounding beaches.
I left the bungalow and went outside. It started raining. I felt a sense of calmness and tranquility over me. For one moment I stood there watching the rain. I listened to the sound of the rain and looked out to a row of bungalows and beyond towards the open sea. I love simple moments like that, when I can be present and enjoy the quiet beauty of this earth.
