To be or not to be? That was the question. Whether it was nobler in the mind to go out for an evening walk or sit at home, succumbing to the pressures of nature? It was a dark and cloudy afternoon and the Sun seemed to be incapable of driving away the widespread dark clouds.
But, suddenly things changed for the better. By 7pm, it was clear and bright (By the way, here in Groningen it is evening till 10pm during summer!)
So, off we go for an evening walk, aimlessly till we leave behind a host of houses on either side of the road.
And, when we entered the enchanting world of trees and lush green meadows, listening to the songs of the birds, we became energetic and silent, recalling the words of William Hazlitt… Nature was company enough for us. Yes, wherever our casual eyes were cast we could see only trees and bushes, dancing to the tunes of those unseen birds!
Frankly speaking, we were also craving for a cup of coffee and to our pleasure, there was a restaurant in the midst of trees. The rest of our experience you can imagine!
One Commnet on “When the dark clouds disappeared!”
I am glad you have mentioned good,old Hazlitt.He used to be the favourite essayist of Somerset Maugham and R.L.Stevenson.To me too.
