I decided to walk to a board meeting tonight, about a 15 minute walk from my home. I was a bit preoccupied in the first steps, trying to organize my thoughts, letting go of the busy day, the things I still needed to do, and to begin to focus on this new activity that I was joining tonight. Suddenly, out of the corner of my eye, as I multi-tasked walking down the street and responding to a text message, I caught a glimpse of purple. Now purple is a colour that can stop me in my tracks and this most certainly did. The provincial flower has been on my mind and there it was–the first sighting of the season. I stopped everything and soaked in the moment, grateful that I had my camera phone with me to capture it.
What do you wait for with excitement and anticipation? What is it that has the power to both still and steal your thoughts? What can captivate you? What brings you hope and gratitude?
