yet is was no ordinary day.
The warm sun was kind to my face,
while the cool breeze from the open window
bathed my neck.
The view from my seat was brilliant
like someone had switched from monochrome
to HD colour and I was fully tuned in.
I wanted to make this day count,
so at every stop I captured
when the lady in the white sun top boarded, the breeze blowing her fragrance before.
I felt so receptive to life, it felt like
life was smacking me in the face
like the splashing of cold water
on a perspiring forehead,
I felt so intimately
connected to life and
all that was going on
around me after what seemed
like a period of disconnection.
As I neared the end of my
sacred ordinary journey, thinking
about all of the young people
getting on and off the bus,
I began to think of my life's journey
being quite away down the road
from these folks, how it seems to be whizzing by.
was most painfully poignant
<~ but the most beautiful capture of the day I think,
don't you agree?
Journey's end, Nottingham,
a university city
famous for visual arts.
