Little joys of life
I sit at the terrace, looking at the sky as the sun begins to go down. The bright orange of the sun diffuses to form a dull gold that spreads across the evening sky. The bright green leaves take a blackish hue against this backdrop. Birds start to head towards their homes in whatever foliage still covers the skyline. My dogs are playing their usual games, sometimes to amuse themselves, most of the times to catch my attention. As they see me get up and head towards the terrace door, their activity comes to a halt. All four of them have their eyes on me, asking, "Where are you going? Don't you like our antics? We are doing all this just for your entertainment!" A smile flashes across my face and my heart fills with happiness. I count my blessings, as I open the terrace door to leave.
