229 |365 Long Drive

Hamilton SunsetTonight I took the long way home. When it’s busy it still takes 2 – 3 minutes longer, but the drive is relaxing, the traffic is generally light and my competitive nature doesn’t have to come out.

When I take the short way at peak times, the traffic is bumper to bumper. 2-3 minutes shorter and not at all relaxing.

Tonight, taking the long way, I stopped and took this photo of the sun setting across the farm land. I wouldn’t have stopped in heavy traffic. I would have missed the moment, and I actually got a small kick out of seeing the sun set and know the day was ending.

I remind myself, that sometimes in my rush and competitiveness I miss small things.

Beautiful things.

One of a kind things.

All for the sake of a couple of minutes.
