But I was driving. Home. I instead I turned my thoughts inward to family, friends, love and beauty and the timelessness of enjoying NOW. The winter sun, absent or clouded in winter in NE Ohio shone brightly and warmed the interior of the car, it felt just like summer and oh how good this felt at this moment to have that warmth on my fingers clutching the wheel and on my face. Soaking up the much need Vitamin D. Welcoming that light in that moment, opened my heart.
As I was driving, I noticed small birds flying and ugly trash blowing across the road...the contrast of beauty and ugliness, reminders that living in the moment means accepting what we judge as good or bad and dealing with it without judgement because it is just THERE in that moment and like trash blowing across the road or birds flying across one's line of sight it will be gone in the next moment. For me this brings freedom; freedom to not be burdened by little birds that fly into your life or trash that blows through.
