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.
One of a kind things.
All for the sake of a couple of minutes.
