Looking under the train, I could see a motorcycle. It kind of felt like the motorcycle was taunting me. The gas station is right over there next to it. The motorcycle rider is probably enjoying his snack.
At first the situation was exasperating. I was looking around my car in frustration and there was my camera. Hmmm... My camera. Perhaps there is something interesting, beautiful, or amusing nearby. Hmmmm... Maybe I can find some joy!
At first, pictures were snapped out my car window. Here's the railroad crossing and the train. Red blinking lights make me think of Christmas decorations. Check out the pretty colors in this store's display window.
At this point, I am hoping the train hangs out for a while. I kind of like waiting for a train. Why do I hurry and rush so much?
Stepping out of the car, this sign catches my eye. I'm not sure why this upside down sign cracks me up, but it does. It made me think of the circus. Have you ever been to the circus and there are performers that don't walk into the spotlight, they tumble and cart wheel and flip into the spot light? This sign made me wonder what it would be like if we all stopped walking, and started cart wheeling, flipping and tumbling.
I have to wonder if life is about destinations or obstacles. This particular day, it was about an obstacle. A big, fat, charming obstacle filled with joy.
