Now, just a tourist
Spotting and enjoying beauty
Whatever, Wherever, Whenever

 Interested in seeing, not seen
Not on the stage but in the audience
Enjoying, not entertaining

……retired from efforts
Of controlling world outside

An attitude not a stage in life 

OSI Prompt : Retirement

You are absolutely correct, Harshad. That is what I've been doing for the last three weeks.

Pictures are posting on my other blog. There will be more.
