someone else’s eyes

Happy Place, Happy Space

My previous outing with Nature Loving Friend was at one of her favourite green spaces. This week, I took her to one of my much-loved urban routes.

Despite being so close to a residential area, she still managed to encounter nature in all its cuteness.

This family of smooth coated otters came out of the waterway to sunbathe in a residential parking lot.

Thinking back on how fun it was to experience a familiar place through her wonder, I am imagining a kinder & invigorating world if we just took time to view our world through someone else’s eyes. With this in mind, I hope you enjoy this thought-provoking music video from Whale City.

Reading your Joyful Posts brings me to my happy place. I hope having them in one place makes it easier for you to find when you need a bit of happy therapy, too.

If you would like to join in Happy Place, Happy Space, ping back to this post and I will include you next week.

  1. I’m jealous! Two visits to Singapore, no otters spotted. But we did see one of those road signs (near Gardens by the Bay, I think) warning drivers to beware of otters crossing the road, so that made us feel even more frustrated!


  2. Those otters are so cute! Looks like you had a wonderful time exploring with your friend. Your pictures make me home-away-from-home sick for China (I know you are in Singapore but I saw similar scenes visiting my son in China. Expletive deleted COVID!)


    1. It is good fun and a privilege to share space with a friend who is willing to explore alongside. I hope you get to visit your son soon – China is very slow in opening up unfortunately.
