"Something in us is telling us we're moving too fast,
at a pace dictated by machines rather than by anything human,
and that unless we take conscious measures,
we'll permanently be out of breath."
~ Pico Iyer
This hasty photo was snapped from a gas station during one of the busiest days I've experienced in quite some time. I flew from one activity to the next, with hardly any time at home all day long. Several parts of the day were very leisurely and enjoyable, but I don't like hurrying down the highway from one thing to the next.
Today's prompt was "I dislike..." which put me in the unusual position of looking for the negative. I generally do the opposite! What I realized is that the hectic pace of my day prevented me from taking my time searching for a perfect photo op. So, this was snapped "on the fly." To honor the prompt, I have to admit that I dislike a hectic pace. I'm a big fan of life in the slow lane!
We were very fortunate, however, to spend the evening with one of my daughters and her husband, as well as with one my partner's sons and his wife and child. We ate at a "plant forward" restaurant and the meal was nutritious and delicious. The conversation was fun and lively. The faces were beautiful. The laughter was contagious.
At the end of the busy day, we were finally home. In the darkness, we parked the car and walked under star-filled skies into our house, where we were greeted by an enthusiastic canine welcoming committee! We threw a few logs in the wood stove, and took a few deep breaths. Life is good.
Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you a pace of life that suits you.
