Samedi soir sur la terre
The light is starting to fade on a wet Saturday evening in Cardiff, as I listen to Francis Cabrel singing his song of the same title as this blog post. It's been a much needed low key day after a rollercoaster work week. A few hours of hanging out with the smallest one while The Canadian catches up on sleep, enjoying fun activities such as watching the laundry go 'round from her bouncy chair, followed by relaxing to the music of Jewel, Eva Cassidy (such effortless beauty in her voice, time suspended as each note hangs in the air) and now Francis Cabrel.
There is something comforting about nesting inside while the raindrops pitter and patter their way on the roof and windows, and the cars outside splash through wet tarmac. Quiet, slow moments like this are precious in a world that can seem increasingly noisy and busy.
Still, there are tasks awaiting followed by the prospect of a pizza takeaway. On with the rhythm of life we go!
