I was running late for the shop yesterday. No excuse other than I was just enjoying the first really cool, crisp, and sunny fall morning. And like everyone who’s a bit behind on getting along with the day’s business, I was getting concerned about being where I needed to be. While heading down the narrow road to the shop, a pickup truck pulled out in front of me – just far enough to further my annoyance. The truck was going at a snail’s pace. Why doesn’t he move it? At least go the speed limit, ok? As I approached the truck I saw something which appeared to be glowing in its bed. Sunflowers! Freshly cut and on their way to the farmer’s market in town. While I couldn’t “stop and smell the roses,” I did slow down to enjoy the view. My annoyance faded and I even followed the driver to his destination and asked him if I could snap these pictures. So what if this added a few more minutes to my tardiness? Just goes to show – sometimes work will still be there if you’re a bit late.
