The title of this post has very little to do with the way I conduct my life, if I can help it, but more about the pretty red-flowering hedges and the hanging bougainvillea in the water garden next door, which we overlook from our balcony.
The tranquil image is somewhat diminished this evening by the preparations for a party in the vicinity, which would certainly drive me to drink, if I was attending in person. Instead I shall just have to look down on it, (appropriately enough) and if I sit on the balcony, wear earplugs when the singer begins her wailing.
This afternoon I was exercising vigorously in the gym, which overlooks our pool, and watching one of the maids sweep up the leaves which have been providing a steady shower with the breezy days we have been experiencing in Bangkok. She was also lining up the chaises longue, but appeared to be making a horlicks of that. So I lent my (verbal) assistance, to ensure that there was parallel parking, and indeed that each was equally spaced, an issue she had no problem in achieving for herself.
Straight (placement) and narrow (gaps).
