Yesterday, I had to do the Circle loop on Sydney trains due to silly trackwork on my East Illawarra line.
I didn’t mind the journey at all however as I was met by this stunning view.
How could one not look up when stopping at this station! It’s breathtaking. The view is simply stunning. I was at the time reading Mao’s Last Dancer and was well and truly engaged but as soon as we pulled into the station I was pleasantly distracted.
I just sat there for the 3 minutes as the train waited for the busy Sunday stream of passengers and out the window with complete calm and serenity. Nothing to distract me. No thoughts to interrupt me except expressions of beauty and admiration.
I am so lucky to live in a city with one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. And to think, it’s only a train ride away.
Take the time to go an enjoy the simply beauty that is in your own home city or town.
Thank you Sydney. You have dazzled me once again.
