“Your joy is divine and so is your suffering. There’s so much to be learned from both.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Trying to be supportive and positive, I usually point out how things could be much worse. My philosophical husband always responds with a heart felt, "They could be better too". The glass half full or half empty dilemma, I suppose.
I'm usually the one to plan our weekly activities, but today Toby requested we head to Lady Bird Lake for a walk. We both enjoy the amenities of the city, and no matter what state of mind we are in, downtown Austin has always been our happy place.
He apparently had a lot of stress to walk off. Short of running, I could barely keep up with him on our 5 mile walk. I don't know how a man with such short legs can walk so fast. The conversation was flowing too, which made it a much needed walk and talk.
Along the way, I took pictures. Austin is such a photogenic city. I feel like I can never get enough pictures of downtown.
For lunch we stopped by downtown's Baby A's for some lunch and a much needed Purple "Rita. Behind us an older woman was crying because her husband had cancer and was in chemotherapy. As I said, our problems could be worse.
