This morning I awoke in a state of peace. I put on a pair of shoes, grab my keys from the counter and headed for my car. The sky was still a jet black sheet with glitter artfully sprawled out across it. Its warmer than I expected which is pleasant and the smell of rain is still fresh in the air, though it passed before I woke. I start my car and realize my phone is still inside and I usually use if for music but decide instead to listen to the hum of the engine and the breeze coursing through the windows for a change of pace. There no one on the roads. Street lights are still on. I drive. No destination. No outcome dependency. Just absorbing the silence from all the noise the world thrusts at my feet every chance it gets. For now it sleeps, and i won’t take the present for granted.
“Make it happen. Shock everyone.”
