Drove to uptown this AM to meet dear Hood for coffee – yum. As I was driving, I had one of those moments where time seems to slow down. Waaaaaaay down. I was listening to waterdeep – maybe that aided my thoughts? Probably.
I’m driving down McKinney Ave., a drive I used to make daily when we were still living in the apartment. And I just got all nostalgic. And felt really small. Watching people walk the routes I used to walk, visiting places I used to visit, seeing people have carefree Saturdays (I used to have those too!) – now they’re not so carefree, but still joyFULL! Believe it or not, life continues on as normal. I know, thankfully and gracefully, that my life is significant; but on some matters – it seems so insignificant. Humbling. I’m one more person on this earth. I better live well. I felt like I was getting little glimpses of a former angela. And then I had such a peace, knowing that I truly feel like “me” right where I am. This life. December 2009. I’m so thankful for that.
Hood & abi a few weeks ago at lunch!
