I was driving back from the post Office today and tried to get to a Green light before it changed, but alas I was too late.  Damn!  I looked around and suddenly remembered I hadn’t taken my photo of the day – another thing on my list to do for the day.  Damn!  Then I said to myself “Yes I have”.  I pulled my iPhone out, window down and snapped this one shot.  Traffic light turned green and off I went.  The beauty of this, is that it snapped me out of my negative moment, of having to “waste” my time at a traffic light, into a positive moment of, let’s be present and notice the beauty around us all day.  So thanks to this project for keeping me present, which was my goal at the start.

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
— Buddha
