263 – Night moves


Another long day – if it was even slightly likely to go wrong today, it did so. You get days like this every now and again. I’m always initially frustrated, but then I try to get into the swing of it. At lunchtime I was trying to get a couple of chores done. Unusually, I’m trying to drive from one part of town to another. The chores starred our car. And about a million traffic lights, all turning red as I arrive. I stop/go my way across town. I arrive eventually near my destination, nearest park about 10 minutes away. I lock the car, and begin to enjoy the rain that moves from faint mist into downpour the further I move from the car. I’m not exactly soaked, but definitely moistened when I arrive at my destination. Unexpectedly, they’re closed until 14:00.

Ok, universe I get the picture. I’m not going to get done what I ‘need’ to get done. Life will continue. Really? I’m going to get all twisted because I’m delayed? Irritated for sure, but maybe that’s just a sign of being alive. I could spend the time creatively – trying to learn or to love something from all this…

Later that same day, I’m sitting and waiting. I make some photos. The weekend starts to kick in. Whatever caused the squall of frustrations has moved on. Thank God It’s Friday. I might have a glass of wine when I get home.

Manifesto
48. Every day there are things you canít change. You can change the way you think about them and deal with them.
49. Every day is a good day.
50. Every day has an ending.
