Slow down day, May-5

Come across this quote by George Carlin, "Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong."

If you are one of them, I am now offering somewhere that you can go for a picnic. It is big enough for a couple, though not big enough for a sleep. Anyhow why bother so much if it is just for a short stay. You can hug, kiss this tree, and even have your confession here, where there is no long queue at all.

The picnic site does anyhow look like a toad, a giant toad. I shall not elaborate further, but once you have settled yourself down, the tree will then repeat its story, the mind game between a tree and a toad. Just like what I have heard before, and some others in the past, and that giant toad is now tamely a follower of the tree, as you can see.

Where is this place? It is at Bukit Ayer Recreation Park, Perlis.

This may be a short post for today, because I tend to slow down too much this time until the next word is hard to catch up with the previous, and I have to tell, though it may be too late to you, it is Slow Down Day at the time I am writing, according to an email I received this evening.

For your health, take time to slow down. Smell some flowers, watch the birds, take a walk, do whatever you want to any tree you can see, it will not get angry.

Nice place for a picnic. But the weather is just too hot recently. If waterfall will be better. :)

I like this part of your post: "You can hug, kiss this tree, and even have your confession here..." It's so soothing, and I would do this any day!

I think I'll take your advice and slow down for awhile today. I need a rest anyway. The George Carlin quote was good. I like him.

I was half hoping it rained today - I need to slow down a bit. Well maybe not slow down - I'm slow enough but I do need a break.

Superman: It rains almost everyday now in peninsular, I have missed many in my schedule.

Icy BC: Having confession before a tree is best as he won't talk back and tell others, the most he will is to talk to his tree friends that we won't know.

Ratty: I need some rest these few days. The rain drove me dumb and blogging during the limited time before sleeping makes me tired.

betchai: I must have continuous day dreams these few days for this post, or else you should not have smelled this.

wiseacre: You are slow, I am sluggish; we are buddies. I'll give you a break, and you better don't break me.
