Sitting with you in my garden would be my ideal world

Updated: May 25, 2020

Dear Doc

I have a busy day behind me. In the morning I read and corrected the manuscript for a scientific paper. For some time, I have planned to read it but could not find the motivation in me. But today was quite enjoyable to engage my brain in that way. When I sent corrections to my collaborator it made me feel better, as that was the third time that my colleague wrote to me asking for my contribution. Somehow, it took several weeks already in lockdown for me to get back my interest in my work. It feels good and I am happy I did something. Some data are still missing, so I am going to my office tomorrow. I am looking forward to seeing my workplace for the first time in several weeks.

The weather today was fantastic, a sunny day, optimal temperature, not too cold and not too warm. I spent the day in my garden. First, I cut the grass. After that I painted a mini fence in the same colour as the main fence. This was very relaxing, and the result was very pleasant to the eyes. At the end of the afternoon I planted some flowers that I got from my ex-husband. We are still friends. Our daughter is a strong connection, but it is not just that. On the human level we still respect each other, and we care for each other’s well-being.

My ex-husband is an experienced gardener and when he took care of our garden, I never had to do anything. The garden was beautiful, and I took that for granted. When I realised that sitting in a nice garden requires effort, I had to take things into my own hands and do some gardening by myself.

My garden is small but very nice. It would be a great pleasure to share some moments there with you, in the mornings, or evenings. This would be my ideal world. When I imagine you, I instantly feel contentedness envelop me. Now that you know that, do you understand why I do not want to stop thinking about you? It gives me joy; it gives me happiness.

How was your day?

Take care, stay safe.
