Tell-A-Tale (Part 52): Sunday Morning

What I miss the most on a Sunday morning? A bowl of noodles, a cup of tea, an hour or two reading the Sunday papers and JUMBLE - followed by a few more hours of sleep before systemically deciding on how to enjoy the best day of the week. I long to be able to do that with no deadline, no bus schedule and no shit from anyone on my mind.

We all need a break from competing with ourselves and trying to make every minute more constructive than the one before. Let's just make some time to be away from it all and enjoy the things that used to make us happy. That's what you are all about.

I'll learn to get there again.

...Sunday morning and I'm falling
I've got a feeling I don't want to know
Early dawning, Sunday morning
It's all the streets you crossed not so long ago
Watch out, the world's behind you
There's always someone around you
Who will call, it's nothing at all...

(Sunday Morning by The Velvet Underground & Nico)

Sunday Morning
brings the dawning
It's just a restless feeling
by my side
Early dawning
Sunday morning
It's just the wasted years
so close behind

... i believe that our years are NOT wasted! thx to good memories and friends like you (and gang!)

my Sunday morning usually involves breakfast at home now,
the scuffles, the dim sum mania, and the utter laziness had me dismissing the idea of eating out.

i'd go for brunch instead. hehe ...

sounds like a good morning..unfortunately all i can remember of my last sunday morning was waking up to pee and drinking lots of water, and back to sleep..
