As I drove toward Jen’s house so we could get ready for our radio show this morning, I was thinking about how beautiful the day is, how grateful I am to be alive and how wonderfully my life is blossoming into something magical and amazing. I was feeling happy about what I am creating and ruminating about how I have set it all into motion.
I was in the far right lane of the road, feeling oh so happy and delighted with everything when SUDDENLY, a woman flung open her car door on the right side of the road, wide enough that I missed it by a mere fraction of an inch. She jumped out of the car, slammed the door and ran around the back of the car completely oblivious to the fact that she had nearly lost the door.
For the next 60 seconds, I turned onto the street of the neighborhood where Jen lives and thought about that woman. I actually heard myself think: I wonder what was she thinking about. She seemed completely unaware of what was going on out in the street. I wonder if she even noticed that she nearly lost her door. Did she know I was there?
On and on the thoughts went, curious about the situation and rollercoastering into wondering about myself and the areas of my life where I may still be unaware then back to the woman on the street and back to me again. I thought and I thought and I thought. I got curiouser and curiouser as I parked on the side of the road in front of Jen’s house, turned off my ignition and threw open my car door… nearly hitting a car that was driving up the street.
Oh the irony of the Universe!
