Follow a Cloud?
I think I should change the title of my Blog to "The Random Blog." I know there is no rhyme or reason to it & it can't be categorized. Some days it's about sports, other days fashion, dances, pain, encouragement, scary situations & simple moments.
But that 's me, that's who I am...that's my life, that's my daily moments, interests & thoughts. I can't be put into a category, a box or one simple subject. Life is never one dimensional...
So today I'll share a moment.
Last week on the way to take pictures of the JV Football game, I was late, rushed & trying to get there before the opening kick off (yes, classic me!)
While stopped at a light, I noticed a single cloud shooting across the clear blue sky. At first it looked like something a jet would leave trailing behind, but it went on forever...I couldn't see the beginning or end & it was a little thicker. As I turned & headed up the hill, I continued to try to see where it ended. My curiosity got the best of me, late or not, I needed to see what was up with this forever cloud. Driving up to a park, I pulled in the driveway, stopped my car & got out with my camera. I only had my large lens so I took pictures of the cloud in pieces.
I walked through the park to an opening & just stood there. The cloud stopped directly over the bay...as if it was an arrow, directing me, pointing the way to a beautiful view. I stood there in the peace & quiet and took in the moment, snapped a shot capturing the scene & then headed off to the game feeling refreshed and less stressed.
I wonder how many other people were being directed by the arrow cloud to slow down, stop rushing through life and look at the beauty around you.
Just a little reminder to each one of you too...turn off the auto pilot & follow a cloud sometimes, you never know what you'll find.
