A lovely rain is making everything wet in Colombo and things look dreamy from my balcony. The coffee smells good and Pooja is making cheese omelet, while David Bowie sings ‘Heroes’.

Looks like it will be an easy Saturday for us, while many in the world struggle with their difficulties.

My young inspirations are 2 kids of nine and seven. You can get to know them over here and here.

ps: thats the view from my balcony...can you see the rain?

Ah - I am inspired! I shall be pulling out that album today - it's been quite a long while since I have delved into the Bowie collection.

Beautiful view from your home. The morning you describe sounds so lovely and serene.

1st Sunday of every month at Ceylonese Rugby and Football Club (No 28, Malalasekara Mawatha
Colombo 07) lawns.

Perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons.

Just double check with someone if it's still on. (Cos' I left Colombo a year ago!)

Enjoy! :)
