Stop a Moment, Take it In

This morning was dark, dreary and rainy. I was yet again stuck in traffic downtown, about to pull my hair out. While sitting in my car, I happened to look over at the Louisville Ballet building, where, through the large picture window, I saw a graceful dancer, spinning about the studio.

The Louisville Ballet headquarters on East Main Street in downtown Louisville.

I smiled, the traffic began to move again, and I was thankful that life slowed down a bit, at that moment, so I could see the beauty that surrounds me.

What a great little surprise during your morning commute! ;)

That would make me smile too. And something else that would make me smile is getting to go to Trader Joe's grand opening this weekend! I'm excited for ours to open next year sometime.

You should be proud! My biggest fear is that I will look back at these years and not only miss it, but think I could have done it better, NOT GOING TO HAPPEN :)

isn't it great just to catch a second of beauty that reminds us to slow down? i am trying to find simple pleasures in this crazy world we live in and live in the present!
HUGS, Jennifer

I can totally see that as a scene in a movie. There is beauty and reasons to dance everywhere.
