Some days, you feel crappy, you can't help but to feel sorry for yourself, you lament your constant state of crazy busy-ness, and your inability to feel patience and at peace. Life seems to be fraught with discord, angst and frustration. Then, as you drive dangerously fast to yet another appointment that you're late for in the pouring rain with a crying little one in the backseat, life throws an unexpected moment into your path that slows each breath, reminds us that life is not to be taken so seriously and causes you to laugh out loud with the joy of the unexpected and the odd....This time I just happened to have my camera posed on the passenger seat to record my moment....I'm thinking that I may have the photo printed on a t-shirt, a mousepad and a poster for my ceiling.
The funny thing is that I used to do this when I was a teenager. A friend and I would run naked in the pouring rain (although in the middle of the night in a golfcourse) and I remember how fun, free and silly it felt. This guy, however, was running up the road near a shopping centre alone with a huge grin on his face. I'd love to send him a thank you card for making me giggle and reminding me just how ridiculous it all is!
