So I was out and about the other day in the late evening. It was one of the sunny, warm days we've had lately and everything was nice and glowy.

I had my iPod in and my favourite song of the moment came on.  It always makes me smile.

As I'm listening to this song I look up across the street at this little urban park thing and I notice that the trees are shedding something; seed pods or something, I don't know.

All I know is that the way the light was hitting them, they looked like magical golden glitters.

I'm not exaggerating. It was magical.

It really looked like a scene from a movie with silvery shiny glitter was being thrown down in the forest so that the fairies could come out to play. It was absolutely gorgeous.

I kept looking around to see if anyone else noticed, but I guess I was the only one lucky enough to not have anywhere to hurry to.

So I sat there, listening to my favourite song, watching the sparkles fall from the trees.

It was awesome.

I'm so lucky.

Your description reminded me of the scene from Narnia where the trees try to communicate with their blossom...

p.s. I have a new blog (the one true blog - to rule them all - http://www.ewows.net - "The Enormous Waste of Webspace")

There is a theory that reality in one universe is fiction in another. So, the audience who were watching the film of your life in a cinema somewhere Out There probably also enjoyed watching the special effects ;o)
