I am always late.
For work .. for fun .. you name it .. and I will be late.
The other night I started giving this some thought. And I realized that It was not that I sleep over .. or forget. I give myself a good two hours before I have to get anywhere.
No, it is that I am intrigued by the things that call for my attention, and I find myself giving it, while sloooowly detouring on my way to all my destinations.
Those closest to me would call this "Distracted " I myself call it
These photographs were taken on my " Inspired way" to work on one early September morning.
Not a soul or a car , just Norah J and I.
Gazing outside my car window reached by a moment so unreal never thought to be found in Lansing Michigan. But there it was :)
I tried to stay focused on my destination. And maybe I could have been successful if I would have shut my eyes while driving.
But looking to my right and finding the early morning fog settling over the grass was simply .. well .. it was to enticing not to give in, giving this moment it's earned due of awe.
I slammed on my brakes, grabbed my camera..jumped out of my car and just started walking.
Sitting there on an old peace of wood with the only sounds being my camera and the birds making there way to a much warmer place for the winter. Captivated was I!
How could anyone have not responded to this moment's cry to be embraced and captured?
How could anyone ignore?
Does such self control exist?
I am not seeking for approval for my always predictable tardiness. Trust me running in heals to everywhere I go .. I find no pleasure in.
I guess ultimately what I am trying to say is.. that I really do want to try harder to be on time.
For all of those who have to deal with me daily.. thank you for your grace :)
Wish I had time to say a little more.. but as it is I am running late for my Saturday/ service rehearsal..
