I set my alarm to wake up an hour early this morning in anticipation of writing today's blog. Then I read the prompt and drew a blank. I stared at the screen while I drank my cup of tea and eventually went to work.
I thought about it all day and started feeling like a jerk. I'd heard and read things that took my breath away be nothing was bubbling to the top of my mind that I'd seen.
Was I such an unfeeling dolt that nothing moves me?
I suspect it is the opposite, I get to see so many good and generous things each day, I've gotten a little numb.
As I walked to my car, feeling lousy for failing to stop and smell the visual roses and remembered this sunset from last month.
I love this view of downtown Indianapolis at sunset, after a rainstorm. I pulled over to snap some photographs and soaked it all in. As I was standing in the mist, at the side of a busy street, I felt a big wave of gratitude for our city and my little corner of it wash over me.
Here's to 2016 and stopping more often to soak in those breath-taking moments and feel the wave of awesomeness.
